some of them yes, SSDs have much faster burst speeds and can find and read data much faster than a traditional harddrive.

in a harddrive you have a needle waving around with a data read/write head that has to find a certain track and a certain sector, read it, and swing over to the next where an SSD is instantanious because it has no moving parts

What happens when you combine a SSD with other hard drives in a raid 0 setup?

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.

IF it would work ( if ) using a two disk raid0 config it would only go as fast as twice the speed of the slowest drive.

but like it said its an IF, having two disks that arent the same can cause some problems
