We would like to take a closer look at the performance of four Serial ATA controllers integrated into the South Bridges of the three well-known core logic developers: Intel, VIA and SiS. We will find out how greatly the performance of a RAID array may be affected by the controller integrated into the chipset your mainboard is based on.
How do our controllers affect the performance of a RAID 1 array? Let’s find it out now:
When we test the complete array, the victory is won by Intel ICH6R controller. Then comes VIA VT8237. the third prize is taken by the solution from SiS, while the very last one is Intel ICH5R.
In a 32GB storage space Intel ICH6R still feels quite at home remaining the leader. The second, third and fourth prizes are taken by ICh5R, SiS964 and VIA VT8237 respectively.
