  • Need a recommended High Perfermance SATA II Chipset...

    I am thinking about upgrading my motherboard and switching my hard disk storage to Linux RAID. I was wondering which current southbridge chipsets have exceptional overall Linux performance. I mainly care about the SATA performance if I upgrade b/c I want use Linux RAID but also want to have a somewhat future proof motherboard.

    My current system is a an AMD AM2 nvidia MCP51 (nforce4) and the performance is moderate.

    Here are some PTS results:





    Here are some results from hdparm:
    Code:
    #hdparm -Tt /dev/sda
    
    /dev/sda:
     Timing cached reads:   2552 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1277.59 MB/sec
     Timing buffered disk reads:  228 MB in  3.03 seconds =  75.32 MB/sec
    Thank you for any advice.

    Sincerely,
    sirus
