ty ranch hand.
aye, the hay days, goodness me. they were really sunny!
i will look in on the links provided[ty again...for these ].
i came across many titles/topics or similar discussions but, no one really seems to know specifically and w/o going into way too much 'detail' about the needed, the real deal here, i.e. the ''speed''!!! so, i gave up.
what i had hoped to find was a simple almost spec-like pre-sents on raid cards with the best[fastest/most proven['']] to the mid-range to the lowest working contender. there wasn't anywhere online such, that i could find.
setting up a raid0 in my book, is comfortable within 2 simple words...very cool if a little over the top.
i found it enhancingly enjoyable though challenging and [somewhat] rewarding with the result/s attained at that time.
here i am once again, visiting the sunshine with hopes of reaching goals other than ''somewhat rewarding''...with the
PCIe[a potential[?] of 4.2g/s !]on PCIe 16[x2]...future's looking[?] bright. i might need sunglasses!
irrated, [but not of nature]
at a stage recently i tried using Gilisoft RAMDISK utility.
bringing in an 'HDD speed testing' software, the 'measured', as in speed, was really ridiculous[fast!],
disconcerting almost...these speeds were in and around 1,500MB to ~ 2,000 + MB/s
...using 4gig of average level memory modules.
the RAMDISK was set up as a second OS partition[dual boot][with XP[OS] using prt or portions of the RAID0 array[ at the second partition of a dualboot] even though it used the memory as the hdd[am not absolutely sure really about the array and the second drive in the dual-boot but, i do know that there would have been part of the dual boot[RAID0 array disk] used in order for the secondary OS to be functioning].
apols for the poor wordings for the reasonings of the grasp of why the speeds were so outrageous.
it was pretty amazing that it even got set up at all never mind worked.
went over to gilisoft site to see if this raid array using their memory software was possible.
there was no mention of it.
i did wite to them. they didn't respond... [?]
XP[sp3]was the OS.
setting up the RAID0 array[& RAMDISK] was difficult but, something or someone[?] guided the hand on the keyboard and rolled the mind to make the necessary choices. the settings within creating the RAMDISK, alot of these were unknown but these still had to be chosen.
i think...and am certain enough though, that i was lucky with it, all of it in that it worked.
something abnormal[lol] about the feelings[''] experienced with overall operational speeds provided by this setup,
left me with almost 'wierd' in so many fleeting moments i had to stop using it.
it was very, very fast...
for the personal renditioningsjust above , apols.
it was pretty strange.
i set that RAMDISK build, the arrayed HDDs, aside.
it probably sounds a bit odd and bizare, this story but then, we as ppl, everyone...
are really just that...odd...
as only heaven knows
hmmm, have a look at the speeds of this 'RAMDISK'..
