will raid 0 work with 2 non-identical ssds?

I have one 128gb ssd from adata and one 500gb ssd from wd blue. I recently discovered raid 0 and I want to try it out with these two drives but the articles I have read mention identical drives, will it work with these two?

they both run 3dnand.

  1. Yes; you can RAID 0 them, but it will only work off the smaller of the two drives, that is 128x2=256GB array. You're better off using them separately as RAID 0 on SSD provides insignificant real-world performance increase.

    For multiple reasons, that is a bad idea.
    1. As above...128GB + 500GB + RAID 0 = 256GB RAID array.
    2. SSD + RAID 0 is a bad idea to begin with. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-raid-benchmark,3485.html
