HyperDrive 4 Redefines Solid State Storage

Windows XP Startup Performance (PCMark05)

These results make clear why the HyperDrive 4 only takes a few seconds to boot Windows, while any other hard drive takes 10-20 seconds, depending on the system setup. The results of the PCMark05 Windows XP startup benchmark are displayed in megabytes per second.

File Write Performance (PCMark05)

The write performance again benefits from the RAID controller's optional DDR2 cache memory. The 80.5 MB/s using the default SATA controller represents the net performance without any caches. Removing the cache memory from the Areca controller results in a maximum of 155 MB/s in RAID 0.
