i have reread the article on raid in the latest issue, and i feel that it should have been done diferently.

first, why compare a raptor raid, with the maxtor, the max is known to be almost as fast as a raid.

a more proper comparison might have been a single raptor, and a raptor raid.

or two maxtors in raid, compared to a single drive seems to be more logical, as the 32 meg cache, could easily make the raid faster than a single drive. just my thought. :)

Hi there,

First of all, I think there is some confustion as to how we ran the tests.

We tested a single Raptor versus two Raptors in RAID. The single drive was faster or the same speed in every test.

Then we tested a 300GB Maxtor, and then two of these drives in RAID 0. Results were the same as those with the Raptors.

The tests were "game loading" tests, and we used Doom 3, BF1042 and Far Cry.

I hope this answers your question.
