If you aren't using ZFS, or even a GEOM volume with mirror/RAID5/softup/etc,
you cannot make the statement that hardware RAID is faster. I learned
that 3 years ago.
i state exactly opposite. all hardware raid cards are made just to suck
money from those who believe in it.
like "performance is not enough - buy better/more expensive model."
having same amount of extra memory on FreeBSD server directly will make
better use of it.
This does not go for EMC, IBM, Hitachi high-end storage arrays where you write
to TBs of RAM Cache.
