Progress in HDD country!

How to read:

  1. first is my initial hard disk setup: 2 * WD320 disks in raid0 on an Intel ICH7 southbridge chip
  2. the second picture in the series below is a single 1TB drive (also WD 🙂 )
  3. my recently bought Crucial M4

How future evolves 🙂

Two – 6 years old – hard disks in raid, one 3 years old hard disk on it’s own, and a pretty new solid state disk!

Boot times are < 30 secs (bios POST tests included), file copies between disks are instant (75MBps+), Unreal Tournament starts in a matter of seconds…

An entirely new computer, based on a 6 years old cpu/motherboard! 🙂

Some reads about ich7 performance on tomshardware & techreport

note: ssd is run only with short benchmarks (so some caching from the controller is apparent)
another note: one of the things I love about my job are my colleagues! You can learn so much from them! This post is indirectly powered by knowledge of my colleague anton! Thx!
