For content creation, Intel have simulated access to via video creation applications. This is made up of 98 files with 12MB reads and 14MB writes in varying sizes of blocks. The activity is predominantly non-sequential with the majority of access time made up of writing to the drives. There are quiet periods of read/write activity interrupted with busy periods to present a difficult workload on the drives.
In this test we see a more stark comparison between the parity and non parity drives with RAID 0 coming back as more than twice as fast as RAID 5 and 6.
