Test Results: Single, Dual, Quad Hard Drives
3D Game Benchmarks
There is a noticeable difference between a slow hard drive and fast setups when you load a new game level: the process is completed much faster with a 10,000 RPM Western Digital Raptor, or even a RAID 0 setup. However, our results were difficult to reproduce with adequate accuracy. The waiting time is almost equally short with either two or four hard drives in a RAID 0 array, and as expected, the 3D performance benchmarks don’t show much of a difference.
