I just put two 320GB drives together in a RAID 0 array for my data. The Average transfer rates are 110.3MB/s and the min is 74.8MB/s. The burst rate is 75.1MB/s. As I understand, the burst rate is the speed of the super fast cache. Does it make sense that the burst rate is lower than the transfer rate? Will this hurt performance?
None of my other hard drives have this problem. I'm suspicious that the burst rate was not increased when I set up the RAID 0 array. If what I understand is true, it would be best to disable the cache. Is this possible? Can anyone confirm if this is even a good idea?
