How to read:
- first is my initial hard disk setup: 2 * WD320 disks in raid0 on an Intel ICH7 southbridge chip
- the second picture in the series below is a single 1TB drive (also WD 🙂 )
- 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! 🙂
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!
And some (cool) IOMeter graphs!
