''Intel Grantsdale ICH6 southbridge to feature Matrix RAID''

Posted on Saturday, December 06 2003 @ 19:32:22 CET by

Intel his upcoming Grantsdale chipset will probably feature a new RAID form named Matrix RAID, a combination of RAID 0 and RAID 1 bringing you the best of both worlds.

Now how does this works? In this example we use two 80GB Hard Disks.
Matrix RAID provides two partitions, the first one is RAID 0 and the second one RAID 1 :
- The first partition is 80GB big, and is used to store less important files which are utilized a lot like Windows. It gives the programs a big performance boost because of the doubled HDD transfer rate.
- The second partition is 40GB big, and is used for important files. The files are mirrored, so if one of the two hard disk drives fails you will still be able to access the files on the other hard drive.
Another improvement is that you'll be able to change the size of the partitions without data loss.
