        I recently set up btrfs raid 1 across 2x pcie4 for my boot drive and was disappointed in the read performance with encryption and compression (about 1 GBps read, 4 GBps write), so I was excited by the news of the performance increase in 6.0 and had to try the rc. I now get up to 4GBps read performance. On raid 0 on the same drives (no compression/encryption), I previously got around 2GBps read and now get 11GBps.
