Boot and load times
To test system boot and game level load times, we busted out our trusty stopwatch.
Matrix RAID doesn't appear to add much onto standard RAID boot times. Our single-drive configuration boots the quickest, most likely because it doesn't need to initialize an array before loading Windows.
Level load times don't show much improvement with RAID, but at least the Matrix RAID volumes have no trouble keeping up with traditional arrays.
