DP55WB / 2 x 2 GB DDR 1333 / Core i7-860 / 320 GB HDD for OS / 2 X 500 GB SATA WD RAID Edition ( YS Series ) for video data
OS : Windows XP with SP3 and all online updates , mbd BIOS & all Drivers are updated as of 25/12/2009
The 320 GB is non RAID , the 2 X 500 GB drives are configured as striped RAID
The drive benchmarks show no improvement in speed on the RAID volume
tried all stripe sizes .. write cache enabled as well : no change in performance
same setup on an earlier setup : X38 mbd did show double the speed on the striped volume
Any Clues .. I suspect the RAID Driver for XP ?
