SubjectRe: raid0 slower than devices it is assembled of?

Helge,

Reads you may gain on writes only if all devices are on single ended mode.
Both pATA and pSCSI suck wind in writes, pSCSI should smoke pATA on reads.
It is all a matter of the physical protocol on the wire.

Only in SATA/SAS will you even reach close to ideal world.

Cheers,
