View Full Version : 32 bit vs. 64 bit performance?

Hi All

I'm intrested in finding out if small block transfer sizes, 0,5 to say 32k,
are increased when you use the 64 bit bus, vs a 32 bit bus?

IN other words, would a large raid array, on a 64 bit bus, give large increases in performance over the same array, in a 32 bit bus?

Has anyone run identical raid arrays, on 32 bit, and 64 bit mobos, and, has anyone tested the small block transfer size rates, using ATTO, and determined if the increase in band width translates into considerable improvement in speed, at the lower block sizes?
