My dual 80GB UATA 7200rpm Raid Lev. 0 server (Athlon XP 2000) just died. The drives are fine, but they were getting slow. I picked up a Maxtor 7200rpm SATA 16MB buffer 300GB drive, but I also had a 72GB Raptor sitting around (bought it for a Power Mac G5 I haven't bought yet), and I decided to give the Raptor a try. Not sure how it will perform since I'm not sure TCQ is supported in my nForce3 MoBo (MSI K8N Neo). I suppose if it's still slow, I'll have to bite the bullet and get a SCSI 15k drive. (I can always put it in my G5.
Any input on whether the Raptor is starting to compare favorably against the SCSI drives in server performance?!? Thanks in advance.
