Boot and load times
To test system boot and game level load times, we busted out our trusty stopwatch.
Ignore this one, folks. Our RAID setup may take more than a minute longer to boot than the rest, but it's also the only configuration that has to initialize the Adaptec RAID card, which takes its sweet time booting up.
Of course, we can't blame the Adaptec card's initialization time for the X25-E RAID config's uninspired level load times. The RAID 0 array is at least within striking distance of a single X25-E in Doom 3, but it's a few seconds back in Far Cry.
