Iwill VD133Pro VIA Apollo 133A Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Good, bad, or indifferent. Whatever your thoughts and/or feelings may be of the VIA Apollo Pro 133A chipset, the fact remains that it has given a strong boost of support to Intel's newer range of processors.

RAID 0 Performance

Though the RAID 0 does show a performance improvement, the business applications used in the Business Disk Winmark aspect of Winbench 99 does not fully exploit the capabilities of hard disks due to the fact that those applications do not rely on heavy sequential transfer (or burst transfer). File sizes tend to be a lot smaller and data being read is a lot more random.

The VD133Pro's on-board RAID controller exhibits near identical performance with Iwill own SIDE-RAID66 controller card, courtesy of the Highpoint HPT368 controller chip.

Here we see a great deal of a performance boost of nearly double over a single drive setup. As you can see, the performance of the VD133Pro RAID shines clearly.

Threadmark 2.0 is purely a synthetic benchmark which does not reflect real-world performance at all. However, as it does test more on the sequential transfer performance of a hard disk, it is certainly appropriate in measuring the performance gains of the on-board RAID controller where you can see it really do its job well.
