Peak performance for RAID5 is poor 17.5 MB/sec., measured with Sandra. Any suggestions? Anyone already try this and has experience? Thanks. More about : poor raid5 performance ich10r chip asus p6t dt December 26, 2008 2:35:06 AM yep, that sounds correct. main reason why i hate raid 5 soo much. lets help you out a bit... do this configuration: 2x1TB seagates in raid 0 1x1TB seagate as backup. get acronis to make scheduled backups for you =D that is much better and you actually get performance while backing up your data on a regular basis. Godiwa December 26, 2008 7:16:42 AM raid5 is not poor performance, but using crappy controller is poor performance. if you use a real sata raid5 controller with a processor on it, then it rocks, but using that software crap is just not good and will never be fast Can't find your answer ?
