Corsair 240GB Force GT RAID0 Review

AIDA64

Unquestionably, straight out the blocks, the Force GTs provide some mind-blowing performance. The Crucial M4 is our current SSD champion and our Force GT setup more than doubles the performance. Sure we've got two drives, but 834MB/s puts each drive at around 420MB/s and therefore at the top of our charts. Stunning stuff.

Always a favourite of ours to see how the drives handle the move from each NAND flash chip to the next, the Force GT has absolutely no issues at all. The Linear Read on the left is flatter than the Netherlands and even the write test, which always has more variance, is very consistent.

Correct me if im wrong, but last i checked you can't have both TRIM support and RAID enabled, its one or the other.

Though i know Intel is working on something to make it happen, but im yet to hear of it being available.Quote

This is exciting... I use a 1TB drive for the data on my PC, it's looking like a couple of years down the line with a small premium I'll be able to use SSD for boot *and* data, then relegate the mechanicals to backup duties.

Is this using the Intel RAID setup? Just intrigued as RAID-5 was appalling on my PC at work, whereas a straight stripe was miles better since there's no parity, but I always suspected that the driver-based RAID had some overheads even in RAID-0. It's an older board though (something MSI with an i7-850 on it, not sure what, it's an off-the-shelf HP.)Quote
