Serial ATA RAID
ULi M1575 South Bridge boasts truly impressive specs of the Serial ATA RAID controller, we have already mentioned that in the previous chapters of our review. However, does it really work fast? To find out the situation in real applications we ran some tests from Futuremark PCMark05 suite. The measurements were taken for RAID 0 array built with Western Digital Raptor WD360GD drives.
According to the obtained results, Serial ATA RAID controller of the ASUS A8R-MVP mainboard boasts quite impressive performance. Thanks to ULi M1575 South Bridge chip this mainboard can easily compete with NVIDIA nForce4 based platforms in terms of the storage subsystem performance.
