Dell Perc 6/i SATA benchmarks without battery

The results are not bad, the Hitachi performs the same as it does in a SATA2 motherboard.  However, the 2TB is much different, on a similar 2TB Toshiba I get about 198MB/s on a different motherboard vs the 2TB Hitachi which should produce similar results.

This Dell Perc 6/i is on a PCI x8 riser card and is connected to a 12-port backplane.
