There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The answer to this question is in the specifications for the controller itself. One must remember that to the system a RAID is a single device so the 6Gbps limit isn't a problem. – Ramhound Aug 22 '13 at 13:09

It depends on the controller.

The RAID controller will have its own bottleneck based off of its controller and the interface it uses.

For example, over PCI the RAID controller will likely have the bandwidth of PCI. Although the controller may be less capable than the interface.
