MSI has developed Super RAID for its new gaming laptops, a system that uses a 2.5" WD Scorpio Black 500GB HDD in combination with a pair of mSATA SSDs to deliver amazing performance. MSI's GT70 with Super RAID achieves an average read speed of 928.6MB/s with a burst rated at 1,997.2MB/s!
The SSDs you see are a pair of OEM models from SanDisk, and seem to be a pair of U100 drives. This notebook has two 64GB drives installed, with the RAID element of this setup handled by Intel's chipset. The 64GB models aren't the fastest mSATA's SSDs on the market with rated sequential read speeds of up to 450MB/sec and write speeds at 220MB/sec. In RAID 0 however, they're entirely different beasts.
The Super RAID setup shows off an average read speed of 928.6MB/sec with a burst rated at 1,997.2MB/sec in HD Tune Pro 5.00. This is something we would normally look past, interesting. A gaming notebook with storage capable of nearly 1GB/sec is quite impressive. I'm just wondering where my MSI GT70 notebook is and why MSI haven't sent me one yet. Do want.
