You'll notice there that the 3ware board really sucks when it comes to
write in RAID 5 mode. It's important to notice that until recently,
3ware had two versions of their boards : the "standard" one, and the
"R5 Fusion" one, with "enhanced write performance", which was sold
something like $100 more.
The reviewed board is probably of the old "standard" kind. Now all the
boards sold are "fusion" ones. Or at least, check when you buy.
