Hmmm so this drive is my Steam drive. I know odd choice but I just got curious if 2 in RAID would make games any noticeably faster. It would never be a just because thing. Only if it actually made sense.

won't make any noticable change. It will be basically the same. Raid is sometimes slower aswell as there is overhead aswell.

 

If you just want more space, id just use storage spaces to make a larger volume. That way you can mix drive size aswell.

Let assume it is

Sata 3 max bandwith is 6Gbps

If raid 0 will double the bandwidth, how in the world you would get another 6Gbps bandwidth from?

Its 6gbit per port, so if you have 2 drives you get a theoretical 12gbit max.

but the drive is still capped at 6gbps, and the system isn't load balancing the write either.

thats what raid does. Half the load is on each drive. raid 0 of 2 ssds is about 1000mB/s sequential read and write.

I'm not looking for more space per say just had a thought and was curious. Now that my computer is built sometimes I think of ways I could tweak it to optimize things increase performance where it's noticeable.

If you really want the fastest load time, get a high end nvme, preferably optane. But that difference is tiny. Just use storage spaces if you want more ssds for space. Raid won't help load times much.

no raid will improve the speed more than it's bandwith.

I know what raid is, and the OP want MORE SPEED

Raid 0 almost doubles the speed...................

Bandwidth is speed.

Please do some research on what raid is.

There are different types of raid.

Watch the video.

Yeah my boot drive is a Samsung - 960 PRO 512GB M.2-2280. Then I have the 850Evo and a Seagate - Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive.

Looks good. Do you have a goal? If you want a cheap steam drive thats fairly fast get something like a micron 1100.

I use the 850 Evo as my Steam drive. I was just sitting in my chair on the forum and I wondered to myself if adding another drive in raid would make things any faster. The 850 Evo's are only like 140. So I was curious.

basically no, you won't notice a speed difference.

Shit

Thought this was for hdd, all I read is raid and steam

 

hahahahaha sorry folks.

Raid 0 on HDDs also doubles the speed.

it's only on bench, it will never get 200MB/s on real write or read, maybe on 15k SAS drive, but I never had doubled performance with Windows, Freenas or any OS with any controller.

On a "bench" you run "benchmark" programs that test different types of speed.

Sequential speeds are the speeds that happen when transferring large single files like a video.

The other speeds are for random or high queue depth or other stuff. All of it is encountered in day to day use of a computer.

 

Do a file transfer test and you will see how raid 0 does double speeds even on HDDs.

The problem probably is that your hard drives were so slow you didn't notice any difference when the speed was doubled.

Or maybe you didn't clean install windows or something and you had other things slowing your system down.
