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!
Now let’s check how the use of different controllers affects the performance of a RAID 1 array:
The FAT32 array immediately brings us a surprise. The leader here appears ITE IT8212F controller. Then the second best performance is achieved with VIA VT6410. The third and fourth positions are occupied by Promise controllers: TX2000 and 133Lite.
The tests of a RAID array built under NTFS file system doesn’t bring any changes compared with the pervious case.
