Depending on your MacPro's slot speed settings the speed results can very, this setting can be modified by going  Macintosh HD/System/Library/ExpansionSlotUtility ( can also be referred to PCI config utility) and modify the settings to have the slot that the raid controller card is in to run at 4 times instead of 1 time.
