Default Areca ARC-1680ix-16 SAS RAID Controller Review

About three years ago we got a SATA RAID controller ARC-1220 from the then-obscure Areca. It proved to be so good that it became the basis for the testbed we have used to benchmark HDDs in RAID arrays. Today, we’ve got another product from Areca called ARC-1680ix-16. It is based on a faster processor and supports SAS drives.

Like its opponents, Areca has released a whole generation of SAS-supporting products. The ARC-1300 series is the simplest, offering 4 to 16 SAS ports but no RAID functionality. The ARC-1212 and ARC-1222 series are full-featured RAID controllers that offer 4 and 8 external ports, respectively, and support all the standard array types. And finally, the ARC-1680 series provides the widest functionality, and it is an ARC-1680 series controller that we are going to test today.
