2x SSD in RAID0 VS 1x SSD

Have read Tom's article on this and it seems rather pointless, but it does say it will benefit in file transfers.

Will a RAID0 setup have any advantage over a single SSD when copying files to and from a hard drive, or is it too slow to matter? Is the effect only when moving things around on the SSD?

Most 3.5" HDD have their read/write speed limited at 150mb/s or less, which doesn't even come close to a decent SSD's read/write speed. Therefor, when moving files from HDD to the SSD and back, 2 SSD in a RAID 0 setup won't benefit you over 1 SSD. The increasing in file transferring speed only work when moving things around those SSDs.

^ What madness said.

Seems pointless. You will always have a bottleneck somewhere else stopping the potential of the Raid0 SSD's.
