[Taurus Mini] What kind of transfer rates can I get with RAID 0?

The actual data transfer rate depends on the test environment, including the drives, the interface, the computer and the benchmark tool. However, the limitation of the RAID controller in the Taurus Mini Super-S3 LCM is about 250 MB/s. Following are some examples with two SSD's in a striped RAID set (RAID 0):

  • FireWire 800: The performance is limited by the interface to about 80-90 MB/s
  • eSATA: Read 208 MBs/, Write 244 MB/s
  • USB 3.0: Read 222 MB/s, Write 249 MB/s
