Will a ssd raid 0 out perform a single ssd when playing games.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of questions. 1. Will 2 SSD drives set to raid 0 out perform a single SSD when playing games? 2 If the answer to question 1 is yes is the performance a noticeable difference or will u only see it when running a benchmark?

you wont notice a difference at all. Benchmark testing is the only thing you will see mostly.

it will only make a difference when loading a game or new map/level/etc. actual game play speed will not change. i would recommend upgrading components instead of getting another ssd
