Some people on here just like to type to read their words I think. So the OP states "This machine will be doing 3D renders and video encoding." and 2 people respond(one with the Tom's storage badge) with statements like "I have tried it, and there is no performance benefit that a user can detect.
Discount the glowing synthetic benchmarks, a normal user never runs that way." and an even more basic "I don't think that you'll see any performance benefit from RAID with SSDs in your workloads.". In short these guys are soooo wrong in the advice they gave this guy. RAID 0 will pretty much only benefit the video encoding/3D rendering with some perks in a few other situations.
So Tom's hands out these badges that make unassuming average consumers THINK these guys know something and they haven't a clue about the instances this guy needed to know about. Glad I get my information from my own extensive testing or that of my friends and other trusted sources. Just because you google specs doesn't make your knowledge valid and is NO SUBSTITUTE for EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELD!!!
