Morel thanks for joining the community.
I see you have new computer and like to move existing RAID volume.
Since chipset models X38 and Z87 support same RAID configuration (RAID 10), yes, this will work. As long as your RAID level is not bootable, only storage.
The Z87 RAID controller is called Platform Controller Hub (PCH), see information about the chipset below:
If you mean compatible on RAID level, yes, new controllers will support RAID ready, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 10.
I hope this help you, if you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
Thank you very much for your answer.
I forgot to use my chance for asking one more thing:
Do new Intel raid controllers increase read speed of Raid 1 or 10? ICH9R isn't from what I can see ...
1. Is Raid 1 read speed ~2x read speed of a single drive?
2. Is Raid 10 read speed ~4x read speed of a single drive?
Please bear in mind that the RAID controller on your system is a software/hardware RAID solution, which means that the data stripping is calculated by the processor and using the system resources, in addition the performance may be affected by the rest of the software running on the background, the performance test application being used, the type of memory and processor installed and also the settings of the performance tester which may have a big impact on the results.
I regret to inform you that Intel does not evaluate the performance of the specific RAID configurations used.
