It is not a very frequently occurring thing that the users need a RAID array in their home system, but in some cases it is simply impossible to do without it. For our test session we took four ATA RAID controllers, which are mostly spread in the today’s market: a controller from VIA, a solution from GigaRAID, and two products from Promise. Find out which one is the right choice for you!
What will happen if we use only one 32GB logical partition?
The use of FAT32 file system makes our RAID array perform best of all with Promise TX2000 controller. Then we could name VIA VT6410 and Promise 133Lite controller, and the worst performance of the array is achieved with ITE IT8212F again.
Even when we shift to NTFS file system, the situation remains the same. Again the fastest performance of the RAID array is observed with Promise TX2000 controller and the slowest performance – with ITE IT8212F.
