Intel Core 2 Duo RAID performance anomalies?

Preliminary Intel Conroe test results are impressive but it looks like there are some weird RAID performance anomalies:
Right now, it seems that Intel has some serious problems when using RAID5 configuration. If you are using an Intel's own baby, D975XBX motherboard and put four drives in RAID5 array, an interesting overhead and a slowdown will occur on all upcoming Conroes.

We're talking about all the combinations, including Core 2 Duo E6300 with 2MB of L2 cache, E6700 with 4MB of L2 cache and the X6800 - Extreme Edition as well. An odd thing indeed.
