Now let’s take a look at the performance of these four chipset controller in Web-Server pattern.
On the RIAD 0 diagram we see a traditional situation with Intel controllers being ahead of their competitors and demonstrating a significant performance breakthrough starting from the requests queue=4. VIA and SiS solutions are almost equally fast here and they start picking up in speed only from 16 requests queue. The winner here is Intel ICH6R, which turned out just slightly ahead of ICH5R.
When we calculated the performance ratings for our testing participants, we again revealed an indisputable advantage of the Intel solutions. The performance difference between them and the products from VIA and SiS is almost 1.5 times. As for the VIA and SiS solutions, they again proved to be almost equally efficient.
The results for RAID 1 array show that Intel controllers retain their convincing leadership. The most efficient one of them is Intel ICH6R, which turns out just a little faster than ICH5R. The solutions from SiS and VIA demonstrate about the same level of performance under all types of workload.
The performance ratings for RAID 1 array indicate that Intel controllers are over 1.5 times faster than their rivals.
