Her er et engelsk uddrag fra artiklen:
Many people might wonder if it even makes sense to purchase a dedicated RAID controller, considering the availability of powerful integrated SATA controllers such as Intel's ICH9R, which can be found on many upper class motherboards such as the Asus P5K-WS (P35 chipset plus PCI-X interface) or the P5K64-WS (quad PCI Express slots). Since manufacturers have been providing their top models with high-grade voltage regulators and premium components, the quality difference between a high-end desktop motherboard and a low-end server product only lies in the feature set. With six SATA/300 ports on such a motherboard, advanced RAID management software and a dual core or quad core processor to take on the workload of RAID 5 parity calculation, why still bother with a dedicated and expensive RAID controller?
Such an integrated solution will probably do for a small workgroup server to host project and user data as well as applications, but will quickly hit its limits. Once you need more sophisticated RAID levels such as RAID 50 or 60, the integrated solutions won't be any good.
