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 consider a more particular situation when we have a 32GB logical partition.
When we work with a FAT32 disk array the highest performance is achieved with ITE IT8212F controller. The second prize is won by Promise TX2000 and the third – by VIA VT6410. The last one in this race appears Promise 133Lite.
As soon as we shift to NTFS file system the leadership got split between ITE IT8212F and Promise TX2000. VIA VT6410 turns out less efficient here, while Promise 133Lite is the slowest.
