1GB GDDR4 Radeon HD 2900XT next month

According to our source the 1Gb version of the HD 2900XT will be available from next month.

We don’t have a lot of details at this moment, but at least we can tell you that these cards aren’t vapour ware. The other good news is that the 1GB GDDR4 version will be a 9-inch card, not the 12.4-inch cards as earlier rumours speculated on. However, the 12.4-inch cards are still likely to end up in various systems from the large system integrators, such as Dell, HP and Fujitsu-Siemens. There is still no word if the XTX cards will appear or not, but maybe these new 1GB GDDR4 cards will be clocked higher than the current crop of HD 2900XT cards.

tbh i think the 2 HD's have to be the same. Ive got 2 WD 250GB's in Raid 0 but their both the exact same HD.

Some raid controllers want exactly the same models or they won`t allow raid-0.

Some raid controllers just want same size to do raid-0.

Some will only allow JBOD if there`s any differences in the drives.

Some only allow raid over 2 paired SATA sockets.

Some raid controllers will take 2 drives of any kind and allow u to setup whatever the heck u choose.

Bare in mind tho, whichever drives u choose that are unmatched size wize, the raid will be 2x the lowest size. So if u`r raptor is 74g and the barracuda 200g, u`ll end up with a 2x74g raid.

you can create a software LVM group - no size equality reqd

in windows

Control Panel >> Administrative tools >> Computer Management >> Disk Management

right click ur disks >> Convert to Dynamic Disk then
Rclick the partition u wish to extend and select extend (u may need to have the nu disk as a non partitioned dynamic disk)

this is JBOD raid it offers no performance improvements just stitches up the space to look like 1 big drive thats will only be visible in win2K or better ... i u want linux instructions ill post em

I did my raid simply by following the motherboard manual (i was after a clean setup and I used my old hdd as an external)

Make sure you backup in raid0 (y)
