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!
When we start using 32GB logical partitions on our RAID array drives, the results grow up a bit, but the shape of the RAID 0 graphs doesn’t change. As usual, the array shows better results when working with any of the Promise controllers.
The diagram with the overall performance index you can see that the controllers within the two pairs are almost equally fast.
RAID 1 array performs a little bit slower than RAID 0, although that seems to be the only difference in the graph. Promise controllers look much better than their rivals.
The overall performance indexes again demonstrate that the controllers within the pairs perform very close to one another.
