Performance in WinBench99
In conclusion we will run a few tests from WinBench99 package, which serves as a tool for measuring the HDD performance in desktop applications.
We will compare the performance of different RAID arrays in two integral tests: Business Disk WinMark and High-End Disk WinMark:
As we have expected, the first three positions are occupied by RAID 0 arrays of four, three and two hard disk drives. RAID 01 array is right behind the two-drive RAID 0. I would like to draw your attention to the competition between RAID 1 array and a single hard disk drive: in case of WT-caching a single HDD is faster than RAID 1, while in case of WB-caching RAID 1 manages to get ahead.
