WorldBench overall performance
WorldBench uses scripting to step through a series of tasks in common Windows applications and produces an overall score. WorldBench also spits out individual results for its component application tests, allowing us to compare performance in each. We'll look at the overall score, and then we'll show individual application results alongside the results from some of our own application tests.
As far as WorldBench is concerned, Matrix RAID volumes are every bit as fast as their more traditional counterparts. The overall scores are pretty close, but let's drill down into WorldBench's individual results to see if we can find a little more action.
Multimedia editing and encoding
Windows Media Encoder
VideoWave Movie Creator
Performance is reasonably consistent through WorldBench's audio and video encoding and editing tests. Matrix RAID volumes are often faster, but always within no more than a couple of seconds of equivalent RAID arrays.
