2TB Flash Storage PCIe 2.0 x16 Card tested by Pro Tools Expert: Real life storage test for 4x 512GB Samsung SM951

2TB flash storage RAID for OS X benchmarked in Pro Tools

Following on from our initial article introducing our new PCIe 2.0 x16 card with 4x 512GB Samsung SM951 flash storage devices, here is a real world test performed by our good friends at Pro Tools Expert.
The test comprises of Pro Tools Expert’s James, along with Rich from Create Pro, opening the huge EastWest VST library. We pit a standard 7200RPM WD Black HDD against the 5,700MB/s flash storage RAID on our new PCIe 2.0 x16 card. As you’d expect, using the flash storage RAID cuts the opening time significantly. Also, the SM951 RAID has the unexpected effect of having the session playback in a much smoother fashion. Check out the video below for more:
