The harddrive is one of very few components which are still mechanical to a large degree and it is also the component which is considered to be the big bottleneck of today’s computers. A method used to remedy this is RAID0, or striping which it’s also called. You simply connect two harddrives and let them share the workload of one. Whether RAID0 really offers a significantly improved performance or not is something which has been discussed many times and now Hardware secrets has made an attempt to clear out some of the air by investigating the difference between RAID0 with different stripe sizes and a single disk. From what it seems there is a significant improvement, but it varies quite a lot between the benchmarks.
