OWC Thunderbay FLEX 8: SSD Speed vs Transfer Size
Related: Other World Computing, OWC Thunderbay, OWC ThunderBay FLEX 8, RAID, RAID-0, SSD, storage, Thunderbolt
MPG tested the OWC Thunderbay Flex 8 with four 2TB SSDs and four Toshiba 4TB MG04ACA hard drives. Configurations up to 128TB (8 X 16TB) possible.
Test results: RAID-0 across volume capacity
The RAID-0 stripe of 4 X 2TB SSD (8TB volume) delivers outstanding small transfer size speed, starting out at 600+ MB/sec for 32K reads. As usual, there is a dip at some intermediate transfer sizes; this is seen on all the SSDs that MPG has tested (reason unclear).
