We have already posted three reviews of four-channel SerialATA RAID controllers on our site. Now we’ve got hold of one more device like that, the Adaptec 2410SA. The manufacturing company claims it to be an ideal solution for workstations and entry-level servers where RAID arrays and support of four hard disk drives are important. Let’s check out how close to the ideal this solution is!
Now let’s check the controller performance in FAT32:
The speeds of the arrays in Business Disk Winmark and High-End Disk Winmark:
The arrays took the same places as in NTFS, but their absolute speeds have grown up. RAID10 outperformed the single drive – a nice surprise! A nasty exception is RAID1’s becoming the last.
Let’s compare these results to ones we have when disabling the lazy write algorithms of the hard disk drives:
When caching is disabled, all arrays suffer a performance hit.
