the maximum bandwidth of sata 3 is 600MB/s, which is theoretical only, since there's always some overhead.

ssd's are already in the mid to upper 500MB/s range.

so you put a pair of them, into a channel of data that maxes out at a theoretical 600MB/s... where exactly is the improvement going to come from?

I mean if it does somehow, then great. But I just don't see it.
2 drives and 2 sata 3 channels. you can double your numbers.

this is coming from my 4 month old, no trim, almost full raid set. not nearly what it used to be but, not too shabby either.
