JonnyRock March 5, 2008 4:18:05 PM WOW@dreamPC this HighPoint RocketRAID looks really good. Would a card with memory on make a big difference to raid 0 performance?? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Yoosty March 5, 2008 4:49:13 PM Yes. Also the new Adaptec 5 series that came out this week looks very good, for about same price as the HighPoint card. http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/products/sas_tech/performance/SAS-5405/ The Adaptec RAID 5405 is equipped with industry-leading dual core RAID on Chip (ROC), the latest x8 PCI-Express connectivity, and 256MB of DDR2 cache to deliver over 250,000 IO per second and 1.2GB/s. But the HighPoint can support up to 16 HDD's compared to 4 HDD's for the Apaptec 5405. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
