softRAID 6 with MacDrive 10 on Windows machine

I am considering purchasing an OWC raid enclosure for portable video editing, but all my rigs are Windows 10.  I own MacDrive 10.  Will MacDrive10 allow me to use softRAID 6 and RAID 5 on my Windows machines before the promised Windows update for softRAID6 later this year?  Will there be a transfer speed/performance hit if this is my set up?  Thanks in advance for any answers offered.

Neither MacDrive, nor SoftRAID for Windows support RAID 5 on Windows yet. Both will be released/updated later this year.

Perforamance is excellent with SoftRAID volumes, there is a slight hit because it is HFS, not NTFS, but not major.

@softraid-support  Thank you for the information (although this makes purchasing an OWC enclosure a difficult endeavor at the moment, as I'd like to be able to use RAID 5 now, not some "possible" time in the future).  Thanks again for the info.

Totally understand. While we will get it released, we cannot know for certain the timing.
