You shoulda seen the other thread we destroyed

Originally posted by noquarter Pretty sure you posted "Faster loading. fact" Everything I've read and my own tests show it's not a fact at all. If you want to say "fact" you have to back it up. I posted relevant benchmarks, and yes the above benchmark is outdated but the concept and execution of RAID0 is unchanged, plus the other benchmark shows the same results with newer/larger drives.There are plenty of more technical RAID reviews that show where a RAID excels - database/web servers and dealing with large data streams. The more technical RAID reviews don't even consider how a RAID performs in games because it isn't relevant.Yes, I considered my RAID very likely suffers from a poor hardware/software implementation but between 2 benchmark results and my own results the average RAID is likely to fall in the same category. I used to think RAID0 helped but I honestly never noticed a speed up in load times long before I even read about its ineffectiveness and the benchmarks only reaffirmed my own suspicions. You claim all my knowledge is from reviews, yet you want me to take your 'review' to heart as well? At least reviews I read are backed by data and unbiased testing.

Sorry its just the way it is....
