The Storage Champions: ATA/100 IDE RAID Controllers From AMI, HighPoint And Promise

Business Disk Winmarks

Look at the results of four-drive setups with the Promise RAID controller! This one clearly outperforms the competitors, although it's surprising to see the RAID 0+1 setup perform almost as good as the pure stripeset, which is in fact better than the two-drive RAID 0 setup.

Highend Disk Winmarks

Also in the Highend Disk WinBench test, the Promise controller achieves the best result. Yet the differences are not as large as one would expect in this particular benchmark, as the other system components play an important role as well (CPU, chipset, RAM).
