Areca 1880Ix-24 + 8X Crucial C300 128Gb

Recommended Posts

The 1880ix is a SAS controller and the 1231 is a native SATA controller. The 1231 also has a dual core 1.2ghz intel chip onboard whereas the 1880 is rocking an 800mhz ppc chip. Let us know when you get the 4gb installed I'm suspecting the 1231 might still be faster.

i can assure you the 1231 isnt faster :) its roc is miles behind the 1880...

The 1880 may have a more sophisticated roc but for raid0 performance I'm thinking raw throughput might be the dominating factor. Also I think there's some overhead when SAS controllers talk to SATA devices. I'm interested to see the benchmarks. So far it looks like the 1880 has quite a gap to make up and I'm not sure the additional cache will do it.

1880 IS faster. End of story B)

1880ix-24 -4gb + one Crucial c300 128gb. And this is on a Asus supercomputer with 2xnf200 :o

Latency is ultralow :D

I suppose randman's result could actually be from the cache difference. I just noticed in the screen shot that total test size is set to 2GB so it's less than the cache on one and not the other.
