This is the third in a series of posts about my out-of-box experience with a Dell T7920 workstation. The series starts here.
In the previous post, a SATA III Samsung 860 Pro SSD yielded this performance:
I installed another, and used Windows 10 software striping:
The transfer rates are doubled, and are approximately half the NVMe SSD rates. I’m wondering if you could get to the NVMe rates by striping 4 SATA III SSDs.
Using USB 3, I hooked up a hardware RAID 10 (striped and mirrored) spinning rust array.
Performance is marginally better than a single disk with a SATA III connection.
