Hello,

I've seen some benchmarks that show nForce 4's very bad performance when it comes to HW RAID-5 (write speed about 4,6 MB/s).
Do you know about some nForce 570 RAID-5 benchmarks or have you tried it yourself? I'd like to know whether I should prefer SW RAID or not...

Thanks

Do you still have the link. I have 5 raptors 76GB waiting for RAID 5.:(

nForce 4 RAID 5 read/write performance - even my old PATA disk with Blowfish encryption has faster write speed!

I'll use SW RAID if nForce 570 sucks too.

Well the following aritcles aplly to you if you use a core 2 processor of intel.

Well if you google you find more of these things.
Also it might just depend on your raid settings like here
