Today we are testing the new Areca 1880ix-12 RAID controller. This is Areca' premier SATA 3 internal RAID offering and signifies a great leap forward for a company known to cater to the enthusiast crowd. With the speed and power of SSDs reinventing mainstream storage, RAID card manufacturers have been under tremendous pressure to deliver a product that can handle the massive throughput and high random reads of SSD's combined into ultra speedy RAID arrays.

Ripping apart Arecas new flagship line of controllers here though, we think you will be amazed at the numbers we have pulled up for the 1880ix-12.
