    Tcq, Raid, Scsi, And Sata

    Eugene, you mentioned in the article that any non-braindead controller will optimize reads on a RAID1 volume by spreading them across the spindles. Do you have any idea what controllers fall into the category of intelligent? I'm currently using onboard Silicon Image SATA for a pair of raptors, and I'm considering mirroring but I don't want to do so if the controller is too dumb to spread the read load. If I have to go buy a Promise controller I may, but it would be cool to know a list of cards/controllers that do RAID 1 "the right way."
