RAID 10 vs Virtuoso striping. What is the best for IO performance?

We have a big DB file (350 GB)
Now we use RAID10, have never tested striping. Is it best for performance to use the virtuoso DB file-striping mechanism? And why?

Virtuoso striping can be used to improve disk IO to improve performance as detailed here.

Hardware striping, as in a typical RAID 10 system, will generally be more optimal that the Virtuoso software striping.
