Why are my SATA Drives so slow on a macpro?

With my PC computer I'm getting 85-95 mb/s read & write speeds on internal SATA drives that are 80% full.
Working on a 2yr old MacPro Tower (12gb ram, Xeon 2.8 quad core) I am reading only 65-68 mb/s on drives less than 50% full. Same type of Seagate barracuda 2TB drives in each computer. Is there a setting or bottleneck issue? Also plugged in a Graid 4TB drive (Raid 0) using firewire ports and speed tests with it are only about 10mb/s faster.
