What could possibly be better than a Corsair Force Series™ 3 SSD? How about two of them in a RAID 0 stripe!
We recently published some benchmark results using a single Corsair Force Series™ 3 SSD
When used with a capable SATA 3 6Gb/s controller, the results were nothing short of awesome with just a single Force Series 120GB drive:
Force Series 3 — 120GB ATTO Result
Force Series 3 120GB — PCMark® Vantage HD Suite Score
Being the performance junkie that I am, I could not help but wonder how two of these monsters would perform in a RAID 0. So, I attached two of them to the SATA 6Gb/s headers on the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme Z, Z68 chipset based motherboard I am using for an upcoming project. This is just a small example of the performance I was able to extract from this combination:
Force Series 3 120GB x2 in RAID 0 — ATTO Result
Force Series 3 120GB x 2 in RAID 0 — PCMark Vantage HD Suite Score
RAID 0 is a great option for those desiring even more performance than a single drive can provide. Stay tuned for more Corsair Force Series SSD action to come. We're just getting warmed up here.
