HighPoint SSD7101A-1 M.2 Raid Host Adaptor upto 4 SSD
Shatter the DMI 3.0 Performance Bottleneck
HighPoint’s SSD7101A-1 NVMe RAID Controllers deliver truly mind-blowing levels of 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, SSD7101A-1 RAID Controllers feature dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 bus bandwidth. This unique architecture allows the SSD’s 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
The SSD7101A-1 RAID controller is a truly independent NVMe RAID solution and was designed for today’s high-end desktops, custom gaming PC’s and media workstations.
Unlike most NVMe controllers or drive solutions featured in today’s marketplace, SSD7101A-1 NVMe RAID Controllers can be used with any system with a free PCIe 3.0 x16 slot running a Windows operating system or Linux distribution.
Robust, Compact & Efficient – Shield & Cool Your SSD’s
It’s no secret that PCIe devices can generate a great deal of heat, especially during peak operation. HighPoint is no stranger to PCIe design, and has engineered the SSD7101 Drive Series to excel in high-stress conditions. The all-aluminum casing naturally dissipates waste heat away from the SSD modules, and features an integrated fan and heat sink that work in conjunction to eject excess heat away from vital components and keep ambient temperatures manageable and cool.
Scale Performance across Multiple SSD7101A-1 NVMe RAID Controllers
• Up to 44x faster than SATA SSD
• Over 8x faster than NVMe storage locked behind Intel DMI 3.0
Multiple SSD7101A-1 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 SSD7101A-1 RAID controller can aggregate multiple M.2 SSD modules at PCIe x16 bandwidth, and double that when used in dual configurations!
HighPoint NVMe Manager
Each SSD7101A-1 RAID controller includes a simple, intuitive web-based management interface designed to provide a wealth of monitoring and configuration options for novice and experts alike. A Quick Configuration menu allows new users to get everything up and running with a few simple clicks. Experienced Pros can fine tune configurations for specific applications using the Advanced Option Menu.
Integrated TRIM & S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring with TBW Tracking
NVMe Manager 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. The S.M.A.R.T. monitoring allows you to check a variety of physical attributes of each NVMe M.2 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.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster
Date Issued: 7th Apr 2015
One of the greatest advances for PCs in recent years has been the introduction of solid-state drives (SSD). These storage drives hold information on flash memory that is managed by a processing chip called a controller. Advantages of SSDs over traditional spinning disks are numerous, from silent operation, lower power to significantly faster performance.

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.
