The folks at VR-Zone have word that AMD has stripped RAID 5 support from the SB700 south bridge that will accompany its upcoming high-end RD790 chipset. With RAID 5 out of the picture, the SB700 will only have support for RAID levels 0, 1, and 10. For reference, RAID 5 combines striping with parity blocks, making it a more space-saving solution than either RAID 1 or RAID 10 for users who need fault tolerance. Right now, south bridges in both Intel's and Nvidia's high-end chipsets offerings have RAID 5 support.
VR-Zone says AMD will only bring RAID 5 support into the SB700's successor, the SB750. Aside from that capability, the SB750 will supposedly be identical to the SB700.
