[Trusted Reviews]WD Preps Fastest SATA HDD

"Joining the speed freaks party is Western Digital which has announced the extreme 'VelociRaptor', a 300GB, 10,000rpm SATA 2.5in performance drive - a model WD claims offers a mammoth 35 per cent performance increase over previous Raptors."

I think this will excite a few people

One VelociRaptor about matches the performance of 2xRAID0 150GB Raptors using onboard RAID. It's about 135MB/s vs 135MB/s (plus or minus 10MB/s)

So would 2 VelociRaptors in RAID0 produce the same 35% increase?
