Fusion-io ioXtreme PCI Express SSD Review

PCMark Vantage HDD (cont.)

Our next series of Vantage tests will stress the current weakness of most NAND Flash, that being random write performance. Applications like video editing, streaming and recording are not what we would call a strong suit for the average SSD, due to their high mix of random write transactions.

Once again our ioXtreme RAID 0 volume tested slower than a single ioXtreme configuration though it was much less pronounced versus the more read-intensive functions of the previous set of Vantage HDD tests.  In addition, there are some wild swings with respect to the Windows Media Center, as you can see in the Intel RAID numbers.  Regardless, the ioXtreme puts up impressive performance in a single card setup and really shines in the Application Loading test but doesn't quite keep pace with an Intel-based RAID array, in some of the tests like Movie Maker or Media Player.
