Corsair 240GB Force GT RAID0 Review

PC Mark Vantage

Away from the results that are purely synthetic bits of data being pushed about and into the world of real testing. Combined with our 4GHz 2600K and 1600MHz RAM the Force GTs give us results that we're frankly running out of superlatives to describe. It's the kind of speed that you never cease to be amazed by.

ATTO

Finally we look at the ATTO Disk Benchmark. This utilises compressible data and so, rather in the manner of a weekly TV show that builds towards a crescendo, we saved it until last knowing it's going to be the test that the Sandforce equipped Force GT drives will perform at their very peak in.

Yes, that is 1GB per second of data transfer. Even by 32K data chunks we've passed what a single drive will achieve and we only need 256K to reach the magical number of 1GB/s in write. In fact it's a testament to how fabulous the Corsair drives are that the write test reaches this speed before the read test does.

Ladies and gentlemen, 1GB per second in both read and write.

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
