intel seem to have really dropped behind in the overall performance compared to the sandforce controllers with Toshiba nand haven't they,
I am really leaning towards a 240GB or 2x120GB R0 OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS drives...
also just checked the access times of my current raided SSD arrays and there are not bad:
3xP128 old skool drives = R 0.19ms / W 1.17ms
2xF60 sata 2 force drives = R 0.17ms / W 0.28ms
Pretty good i thought, is amazing how fast that one generation gap is:
Seq...... = 575.90 | 39.32
4k........ = 23.42 | 4.55
4k64Thrd= 41.05 | 1.31
Seq....... = 432.64 | 115.30
4k......... = 17.22 | 50.70
4k64Thrd = 175.60 | 119.24
i would think the new drives would out shine these pretty easily?
Sure but probably won't be noticeable in real life. I got the Kingston hyperx with Toshiba toggle memory. Hardware wise identical to Vertex 3 MaxIOPS except firmware. I had a Vertex 2 50GB x2 RAID0 array before that. I hardly see any difference in performance tbh. Only difference is that I have more space now and performance don't degrade easily thanks to trim. (no trim for raid yet)[/QUOTE]
Thats a true point... i am running out of space to, i was going to wipe and refresh my P128 array and use it for storing sampling software (NI Komplete 8), its about 240GB and it will only be reading from it so should still be alright from a performance side of things.
The new drive/drives are just going to be for the OS and any programs/games, i need at least 150GB for that and i like to keep 20% more free space just to keep the drives happy,
So i would be looking a 1 240 or 2 120's Raided.
As far as trim goes i am not worried as GC does a pretty fine job atm with the drive (they are coming up for there 3 year mark in raid0) and early in 2012 intel is releasing there RST 11.5 driver with support for TRIM passed through Raid arrays so not to much time of loosing out.
