    Normal Raid 0 Performance?

    Level 1
      I set up a raid 0 array with 2 Maxtor Sata II Drives using my motherboard's raid controller. When I ran some benchmark test using "Performance Test 6.1" by Passmark, I found that the sequencial write speed is 104 MB/s and the sequencial read speed is 45.1 MB/s. This doesn't make any sense to me. How can the write speed be higher than the read speed? I tested a single IDE (ATA 133) drive on my computer and it had higher read speeds than my raid 0. What kind of data rates should I expect?
