Default Is an Intel motherboard RAID better or worse thansoftware RAID?

Go areca, I have a coworker that raves about his. At my shop we have dozens of systems using 3ware and they have horrible preformance.

....or buy a 3ware/areca/adaptec card, which is 100% supported.
(but those are heavy bucks)

Turn on the write caching, makes a *huge* difference, I believe 3ware
speciflcally recommend it with or without a BBU. Even on the onboard Intel
adapters performs far far better with write-caching on.

I've got a couple of servers with Areca cards in, but their either running
Windows or just uses it in JBOD mode. RAID performance (in Windows) is
excellent.
