Gaming Performance and Conclusion

System Performance (continued):

DVD Shrink:

The movie Cars was shrinked from my 250 Gb WD to my RAID array to eliminate any hard drive I/O bottleneck.  DVD Shrink is the only multithreaded application in our benchmark selection.

WinRAR:

To benchmark WinRAR we compressed and decompressed a single 150 MB DivX video using RAR format and maximum compression.  Decompression is so low because there is only one file and the I/O bottleneck for multiple files has been eliminated.

SuperPI:

SuperPI is a pretty self explanatory program.  The benchmark calculated PI to 1 million decimal places.

Ultima Online Server:

Loading this server parses over 100 MB and 10,000 XML files and is very cpu intensive.

Photoshop:

DriverHeaven put together a benchmark package for photoshop that runs 12 different filter effects on a 60 MB (decompressed) jpeg file.  Performance is measured in seconds and lower is better.

Hard Drive:

For fun, I’ve included a benchmark of my RAID 0 array using ATTO.  These are first generation raptors that likely include bridge chips.
