My System Specs

Default RAID0 ICH10R SSD scaling comparison

Copying & pasting from XS since a lot of you don't frequent it.


All tasks were run on the following:
Core i7 920 @ 4.2GHz w/ HT off
6GB Aenon PC3-12800 @ 1600MHz 9-9-9-18
Gigabyte EX58-UD5
2 XFX HD 4980s
Asus Xonar Essense STX
1000W Antec Quattro
1, 2, and 4 X25-M's.
A system image was created. Then before each install on each setup, an HDDerase of all the drives was completed. I performed a reboot between every test. Superfetch & page file were disabled. All startup items were disabled through msconfig.

Results:






As was thought my many people here, RAID0 on ICH*R just doesn't benefit a lot of tasks out there. The best bet would to be to buy the fastest single SSD you can find. Buying multiple slower SSDs just shows no real benefits.
