Tempdb performance on Fibre Channel vs EFD

How do you rate tempdb performance on Fibre Channel over EFD drives.?
Right now I am seeing slow performance when placed on Fibre channel..
Would it be better putting them over EFD's?

Depends really on what is actually at the end of the fibre channel. If you have a neatly configured array of decent disks, you might not get much ROI. If you're a perfectionist when it comes to performance, I'd recommend RAM disk! That would surely make a DIFFERENCE in the performance.
In the meantime you might want to have a closer look at the underlying causes of your performance issue. All my DBs including the TEmpDB are on a couple if RAID10 array of SAS drives which are connected to the blades via FC and I don't have any performance issues with the temp DBs at all. But if you decide to go ahead with EFD plan, please do let me know about the result. ; )
