Default How fast is Maxtor 250GB with 16mb Cache vs 8mb Cache?

Will there be a big difference running 2 x 250Gb w/8mb cache Raid 0 vs
2 x 250Gb w/16mb cache Raid 0?

I'll try this one.

As far as maximum sustained read speeds are concerned they will be about
equal since the PCI system and rotational speeds and areal densities and
seek times all tend to limit the maximum speed.

I have read reports/reviews that claim that the larger cache has some
advantage in specific applications like 3D Rendering.

Nope, you'd be lucky if you could even pick it in a double blind trial.
