Does RAID 6+0 (60) increase performance with more drives?

Hi Experts,

I would like to know if I were to add more drives to a RAID 6+0 array if the performance would increase as well as capacity? Or would the performance remain the same?

I see that RAID 6+0 has 4 disks per set, and 2 sets, making 8.

How would the controller set it up if I had a 24 disk array? 6 sets of 4 per set? Or 2 sets of 12 per set?

Thank you very much for any help!
