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.
Previous generation RAID cards have been a trying venture for manufacturers as they have been unable to scale well in arrays, making the cards themselves a pointless endeavor. 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.
