Gaming PC Tips Marvell vs Intel

Part of our showcase extreme gaming desktop testing we installed Windows 7 x64 on the Marvell raid controller, then reinstalled Windows built into our Intel raid controller.

Marvell:

-Read: 686MB/sec

-Write: 597MB/sec

Intel:

-Read: 1089MB/sec

-Write: 1003MB/sec

As you can see if you are sticking to the on board raid configuration to save a dollar, stick with the Intel raid controllers! We can DEFINITELY feel the difference in performance without a single doubt.

This test was done with 2 120GB OCZ MaxIOPS SSD drives in a RAID0 configuration.
