BAD NEWS - 01/18/05 02:26 AM

After tests for my upcoming article, I have some strange and bad news. My SATA RAID O (its new) is faster in bench tests, but in real world tests its SLOWER!!!!!
Anybody got any ideas for me on this. As expected I am really dissapointed, and confused about why this is.
mad :ohmy:

you say in real world tests its slower, what exactly do you mean by this. Does this mean that it was faster on benchmarks performed by the company you bought it, than your own? Or what? Could it be something else in your system that is effecting the speed?

Okay, so I think I know the problem. All of the tests I have done included moving files from the DVD-R Pioneer. That must be the bottle neck here. Of course there are more tests to do. The benchmarks were performed by myself using xBench. Ill reply with some more news on this tonight.
