new usb 3 enclosure for best performance

FirmTek miniSwap/U3 is a news usb 3 enclosure which gives excelente performance
the test is here

http://www.barefeats.com/hard161.html

I have just a question about this "Then we added a second miniSwap/U3 to the USB 3.0 port on the right side, inserted a 6Gb/s SSD, and ran the same tests with the two drives striped (RAID 0)."

I did not know it was possible to built RAID 0 from a mac I think it's with special software, if you know it please tell me

thanks

OS X can do software RAID 0 and 1. No special software is required.
