In our first chart above, we have the random read performance of four drives in several configurations. As you can see, all RAID modes perform about the same as a single drive at QD1, but things quickly start changing as we ramp up the queue depth.

Random write shows a little more performance variance between each RAID mode. RAID 0 performs the best, as expected, with RAID 10 on par with a two-drive RAID 0 array.
