SYSmark 2007 Preview
As expected, 3D performance doesn’t benefit much from better storage throughput. However, SYSmark 2007 Preview at least notices that there is a difference.
As there is a lot of audio-visual content to be loaded, the e-learning section of SYSmark 2007 Preview runs clearly faster on a fast RAID subsystem. Here, four drives do increase performance compared to two.
The final score of SYSmark 2007 rewards the RAID setups with two or four drives. You can gain 4% by deploying a RAID 0 setup with two drives, and a little under 3% more by adding two extra drives.
