How to maximize my performance Tags: NAS / RAID Performance Maximize SATA Storage Last response: May 4, 2012 10:37 PM in Storage Share xenontek April 28, 2012 3:23:15 PM Hi there. Had a browse through the forums and couldn't really find an answer to my question so here goes... I have a single 80GB 7200RPM SATA drive and two 5400RPM 80GB SATA laptop drives. What I am wondering is if the two 5400RPM drives would out perform the 7200RPM drive under RAID0. If so, would it be an appreciable performance gain or just something seen on benchmarks? Thanks guys.
