Can't anyone point me to the right direction of where to get a benchmarking software to measure the bandwith of my hard drive? I have raid 0 array and just want to know how fast is can write, read, etc and to be able to compare it to other pc.
Well I tried the softwares that you guys are suggesting but I have not manage to run them. Too complicated for me I guess but however I manage to run Nbench. I don't know if you guys are familiar with it but when I run the test for the hard drive (raid 0 74Gb Raptor) I got this:
Disk performance, MBytes/sec
File size: 10.0 Mbytes
First of all I don't know which drive is it running. I have 2 drive, main is raid 0 and slave which is regular 7200rpm drive. Still don't know what this numbers corresponds to it's performance.
Yes, and the average read says 120 Mb/s. Is that good?
Sound like it's on PCI 32-bit 33Mhz +overhead =122MB.s at max.
Yes that's a healthy score.
I'm using onboard raid controller of the Gigabyte GA-8N SLi Royal mobo with Nvidia Serial ATA raid 0. Is there any way this can be improved? This is my first raid pc and still don't know much about it.
Mine was a bit faster and it's on an msi k8n neo4 platinum with the nvraid, I assume it would the same or similar to yours. I'd recommend something for you to tweak, but it's 3am and I'm not thinking straight, maybe in the morning.
