I have experienced about 10-20% gain using raw partitions on UNIX servers with version 6. I have not seen any gain by going raw with version. 7.

My advice: tune your SQL statements, review your data architecture and adjust accordingly. Unless you have an extremely astute UNIX system administrator, and an excellent backup and recovery procedure, and have tried everything else but you still need to squeeze higher performance from your application, do not use raw partitions.
