Much faster I would imagine. Software raid is going to have an overhead.
I use Software RAID 1 (SCSI), its pretty fast and very reliable, but has
a few percent CPU and RAM overhead.
I only have the UDMA66 version of the Highpoint chipset, and don't think
it supports hardware RAID. Think I'll add a second drive and try it out.
This is definitely quite a different driver from the standard kernel
version - it
supports RAID 0 & 1 - but as this hardware RAID is anyway not really
hardware RAID I wonder what advantages there are over simply using Linux
software RAID ?
