Now we would like to take a closer look at the results obtained in RAID 1 array:
The tests involving the entire array make Intel controllers faster than their rivals from VIA and SiS. ICH6R in its turn outperforms ICH5R. SiS964 and VIA VT8237 run almost equally fast.
The rating diagram shows exactly the same results as we have just seen on the previous graph. ICH6R is the most efficient of all, then follows ICH5R, and in the end VIA VT8237 is slightly ahead of SiS964.
Let’s consider a specific situation when only 32GB of the array storage space are active.
In fact there is no big difference compared with the results we obtained for the entire array storage space. Both Intel solutions are notably faster than the competitors, which run neck and neck. ICH6R is the No.1 here.
The performance ratings we calculated for the testing participants once again prove our point. ICH6R is an indisputable leader here.
