HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 – Hitting 2.8GB/s

Post by Apoptosis » Fri Apr 10, 2015 3:07 pm

Last month we looked at the performance of the HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe G2 x4 Solid-State Drive and found that was one of the fastest M.2 SSDs that you can purchase right now. To be honest the only two M.2 PCIe SSDs that enthusiasts should be looking at right now would be the Kingston HyperX Predator and the Samsung SM951. The Samsung SM951 is very tough to purchase since it is an OEM storage drive, so that leaves the HyperX Predator as being the fastest consumer M.2 PCIe SSD that is readily available on the market right now. The HyperX Predator PCIe SSD is available in 240 and 480GB capacities and is factory rated as having up to 1400MB/s sequential read and 1000 MB/s sequential write speeds. We were very happy with the performance we got from this drive, but we were curious what performance would look like if we put two HyperX Predator 480GB PCIe SSDs together to create a logical RAID0 array. Read on to find out how fast we can get them!

The only people I've seen that requires that kind of speed are video dj that work with linear composing of UHD video in several streams. More "sensitive" applications go for enterprise grade solutions.
The problem is they use several pci-e cards (in, out, coder) and having two 8x slots used as 4x for two discs.

Also if you have a modern machine, why wouldnt you go for intel 750?

We're in a transition period for ssd, people should wait and see or going for the cheapest solution if they have doubt.
