I’d bet a months wages that a single Vertex or Agility would be faster in the real world than any 2 HHD in RAID 0.
I’d bet a years wages than an Indilinx 2x SSD RAID 0 setup would beat any amount of HDD in RAID 0 (home PC), in both benchmarks and the real world, and without using an expensive hardware RAID card, which is no longer required for gen 2 SSD.
If anyone is upto the challenge of posting results on their HDD RAID0, feel free to post results.[/QUOTE]
You are not considering cost here.
A single SSD shouldn’t be any quicker (apart from access) than 2 HDD’s RAID0.
That is if you believe real world PC benchmarks.
(Photoshop - DVDRebuilder for example.)
The cheapest likely option in SSD would cost around Â£250.
That’s 2 SSD RAIDO.
Yes, they would floor HDD’s all round.
But total storage would about 60 GB.
For Â£275, you can get 4 WD HDD’s (Black).
RAID0 - 4 TB - 5 year warranty.
Compare that to the SSD with only 2 year warranty.
For a difference of Â£25.
Well worth the “speed” sacrifice. To say nothing of available storage/ longer warranty.
But that’s my opinion.
