Mechanical drives vs SSDs in RAID 0 configuration
In the past I have created a variety of RAID arrays using mechanical drives. As a general rule of thumb I found the data throughput with RAID 0 to be an 80 - 90% speed increase when compared to one drive acting alone.
I am now considering setting up a RAID 0 array using SSDs, more specifically I am looking at purchasing 2 x Corsair Force 3 240GB SSD.
What kind of performance increase can I expect from RAID 0 (of the BIOS variety) when compared to a single SSD? Is it better to pay more for a higher performance SSD and forget about RAID 0? Finally how does RAID 0 affect the life span of an SSD.
Any input here will be greatly appreciated.
