I remember reading a benchmark which showed that under random I/O 
patterns, the Linux software RAID performed better on a (from memory) 8 
disks RAID5, due to better use of SCSI scatter/gather.  I think this was 
vs. MegaRAID, but was a while ago.  I've not carried out any benchmarks 
myself, and no idea whether this goes for SATA NCQ as well...
