Even with a board like yours, you're always better off running a true hardware RAID solution... can you imagine an 8 or 12 port Areca/3ware card on that monster? Yowza.
SSD read speeds never degrade. Only write speeds. So his benches above would be exactly the same.

if ssd performance decrease over time (even if it's just write speed) what is the life time a ssd before you can't use it anymore?

From what I understand from the Anandtech article, they decrease over time but only until the drive is full, then they level off again. But even then, they're still super-fast.

I'll try to run those other benches you recommended, lowfat, thanks for the tip
