Can I add SSD to RAID 0?

Furthermore, like the storage capacity, the read/write speed of a RAID 0 is also dependent on the drive with the slowest speed in the array. Therefore, even if you add a SSD to HDD RAID 0, your RAID 0 will still work in the same speed as HDD, instead of the newly added SSD.

Should I use AHCI or RAID?

Is RAID 0 faster than a single drive?

Hardware-RAID-0 is always faster than a single drive because you can step the reads and writes across the two drives simultaneously. Downside is that if either drive fails, you lose data on both disks.
