Product Overview

Ultra-High Performance, Flexible NVMe U.2 RAID Controller

Designed for high-end desktop & workstation platforms, the SSD7120 is capable of delivering transfer performance up to 8x faster than onboard NVMe solutions, and up to 44x faster than conventional SATA SSD’s. The SSD7120’s unique hardware architecture provides dedicated PCIe 3.0 x4 (32Gb/s) bus bandwidth for each U.2 SSD, and unlocks the true performance potential of NVMe based storage configurations. The U.2 ports are compatible a wide range of 2.5” rackmount chassis in today’s marketplace and simplify upgrade and maintenance procedures.

Please Note: HighPoint do not guarantee secure connectivity, stability, or compatibility with unqualified third-party devices or accessories, only HighPoint Certified cables and enclosures may be used in their storage products and solutions. Compatible cables for this product include 8643-8639-50 (LN86981), 8643-8643-0350 (LN109171), 8643-8643-060, OLX4-8643-061 (LN109170).

Dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 Shatters the DMI Performance Bottleneck

Similar to video cards, the SSD7120 delivers dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 bus bandwidth to ensure maximum performance. Unlike onboard DMI 3.0 based NVMe solutions, which are forced to share a single PCIe 3.0 x4 lane with the motherboard’s SATA and USB ports, SSD7100 series RAID Controllers feature dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 bus bandwidth. This unique architecture allows each SSD to interface directly with the platform’s CPU; shattering the constrictive performance bottleneck imposed by DMI 3.0, and unlocking the true potential of your NVMe storage.

Independent, Stand-Alone NVMe SSD Solution

All SSD7100 Series RAID controllers are fully independent NVMe RAID solutions, and are not tethered to specific motherboards or chipset families; any system sporting a free PCIe 3.0 x16 slot with direct access to the CPU is fair game. This fact alone makes SSD 7100 series RAID controllers ideal NVMe storage solutions for today’s high-end desktops, custom gaming PC’s and media workstations. Combine this independence with dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 host bandwidth and an industry proven RAID stack, and you have the ingredients for truly unbeatable NVMe storage solution.

Flexible 2.5" U.2 Form Factor

The U.2 ports provide customers with a great deal of flexibility when selecting an appropriate hardware platform. The connectors are compatible with a wide selection of 2.5” form-factor rackmount chassis available in today’s marketplace. In addition, the industry standard SFF-8639 connectors accept cables of varying length, which allow the SSD7120 RAID controller to be easily integrated into custom chassis designs. This design simplifies field upgrades and maintenance sessions, and is ideal for chassis that require removable drive trays for quick access to storage devices.

Maximising Your NVMe RAID Performance

HighPoint understands that determining the ideal PCIe configuration to maximise NVMe storage performance isn’t always easy. Modern motherboards sport a plethora of expansion slots, and finding the right slot for the right card, a slot that isn’t forced to share bandwidth with another PCIe device or onboard USB/SATA port, can quickly complicate the build process.

Our NVMe engineering staff is dedicated to the customer experience – our goal is to make NVMe storage expansion, quick, painless and intuitive as possible for users of any experience level. Our continuous R&D enables us to identify the ideal PCIe configuration for a wide range of motherboard platforms to ensure customers are able to optimise their NVMe M.2 storage configurations, regardless of application.

Scalable Performance across Multiple RAID Controllers

Multiple SSD7120 NVMe RAID controllers can be linked and installed into a single system, and deliver up to 256Gb/s of performance – 8x faster than NVMe drives locked behind the Intel DMI 3.0 architecture. A single SSD7120 controller can aggregate multiple U.2 SSD's at PCIe x16 bandwidth, and double that when used in dual configurations!

NVMe RAID Management with Integrated TRIM & S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring with TBW Tracking

The NVMe Manager portion of the RAID Management interface features TRIM support, and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring with total Terabyte Written (TBW) tracking. TRIM support promotes the longevity and endurance of NVMe storage by enabling each SSD to handle garbage collection more efficiently, which helps eliminate write speed degradation. S.M.A.R.T. monitoring allows you to check a variety of physical attributes of each NVMe SSD, including temperature readings, voltage and TBW. The interface updates attribute data in real time, and can be even be configured to notify you by Email, in the event of an error condition or threshold warning.

HighPoint Certified Cable Accessories

We manufacture a selection of certified data cables for our U.2 series NVMe RAID controllers. HighPoint Certified Cable accessories are fully compliant with all current technology standards and have been rigorously tested with our SSD7120 controller card to ensure maximum transfer performance, secure connectivity, and ease of integration.

Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

When installing Windows XP, most of the time you’ll find that it has the basic drivers it needs to install itself. However, sometimes you might need to intervene. This tends to be the case if you have a special type of storage, such as Serial ATA or a RAID device.
