Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance 2

Thanks, Gary. For a single SSD drive to get Read speeds of 500MB/s+ and 2 drives in RAID 0 speeds of 1000MB/s+ is getting towards the interface speed limit, bearing in mind that it is 600MB/s and that you have to factor in operational overheads. I note that your Write speeds aren't as high as mine were when I was running non-RAID, but it is chiefly the reading of data and the speed at which it can be read that governs the overall feeling of speed of the computer.

In order to be able to go faster than 1000MB/s, we would need to increase the number of drives so that more SATA channels are employed for the array. For example, 3 drives should yield a speed of ~1500MB/s and 4 ~2000MB/s (I wonder if anyone has tried or could verify that?) and that really would be a lightning fast system.

Your 4K times are fantastic - and that is really all that counts for the OS.
Actually, (and it is one heckuva coincidence) it was you in a post long long ago that made me aware of the importance of 4K speeds for normal use. A belated thanks for that.

Sequential speeds don't even interest me anymore........Random 4K Read/Write and Access Times are where it's at!

Gary, that's very kind of you to say that. Makes an old man feel 2 feet taller. Now the wife has to look up even more - she is only 5 foot 2 inches.

Some additional tweaking (stripe size) and system overclocking (I'm not sure if overclocking makes any major difference) results in better 4K for Vector (256 GB) X 2 raid 0
