Pair SSDs in a RAID 0 for a Huge Speed Boost

You know what’s even better than one solid state drive? Two SSDs. If you want dramatically faster performance from your drives, pair them together in a RAID 0 configuration.

PCWorld ran some tests comparing three types of drives in single configuration versus those paired in a RAID 0. They found as much as an 88% speed improvement when writing and reading files to disk when two drives were paired in the striped array (i.e., your data is split evenly across two or more disks).

One caveat, though, is you should definitely have a good backup system in place, because if one drive fails, you’ll lose all the data. But you should already be backing up anyway. Also, this, of course, applies most to desktop PCs, since not many laptops support two SSDs.

See all the speed test results at PCWorld below.
