Cool HDD setup, 2GB/sec data transfer!
show user profile  Nanne
I found this on YouTube. It is a computer setup with 24 SSD hard disc drives connected in RAID get 6TB storage space and 2GB/second file transfer. Check it!

Would this kind of setup improve speed or workflow when working in 3ds max, Photoshop or After Effects (no RAM Preview needed?)? :)

I'm pretty sure you would still need to do RAM previews in AE, as that would depend on your processor and/or graphics card, not the speed of your hard drives.

It obviously makes things loads faster when opening programs, reading/writing files etc. but I wonder how much of a difference it would make within an application.

well you could almost forget about ram and simply use a very large page file for everything!
