From my experience RAID on SSD increases bandwidth but decreases IOPS and increases latency.

AMD 5900X / Gigabyte X570 Auros Pro / 32GB @ 3600c16 / 1TB Samsung 980 Pro 4.0x4 / 4TB total Inland TLC 3.0x4 / EVGA FTW3 3080 / Corsair RM750x /Thermaltake View71

The only benefit to RAIDing those drives would be a contiguous volume. You'll see no noticeable increase in performance since NVMe is already much faster than is needed anyway.

Main Rig:-

Ryzen 7 3800X | Asus ROG Strix X570-F Gaming | 16GB Team Group Dark Pro 3600Mhz | Corsair MP600 1TB PCIe Gen 4 | Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse | Corsair H115i Platinum | WD Black 1TB | WD Green 4TB | EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650W | Asus TUF GT501 | Samsung C27HG70 1440p 144hz HDR FreeSync 2 | Windows 10 Pro X64 |

 

Server:-

Intel NUC running Server 2019 + Synology DSM218+ with 2 x 4TB Toshiba NAS Ready HDDs (RAID0)

Agree on this. In most cases I have seen, RAID 0 on NVMe drives is indeed used just to combine those in a single volume.

raid 0 would mean if 1 drive fails, you lose all of your data.

 

if you want to test and see what the performance would be like, first test your drives with crystaldiskmark on their own

then in windows 10 pro search for 'storage spaces' and make a simple storage space with the ssds you want to use, and make a storage pool.

test the new storage pool with crystaldiskmark.

compare the performance. is the performance worth the hassle and risk of losing your data when 1 drive fails? its your choice
