disktester fill-volume --xfer 128M

64K stripe size.

Shown below are four SSDs configured three different ways: RAID-0 stripe, RAID-5, RAID 1+0. Speeds are throughput through the OS X file system, as a an application would do.

SoftRAID 5 delivers an outstanding performance using four SSDs no matter which type of RAID is used. The highest performance is RAID-0 (striping), then RAID-5 (striping with parity) and then RAID 1+0 (striped mirrors).
