raid 0 pata cable

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
what is the difference with running Raid (most likely gonna be raid 0), with two hdds on the same ide cable, compared to two separate ide cables? I know the performance is supposed to be worse, but to what kind of extent?
thank you very much.

The performance will be capped at a max of 133MB/s no matter what.

Also, because of the extra latency you will get while each drive waits on the other, you will lose about 10% performance overall.
