* The QNAP card is a lot lot cheaper than NVME RAID cards, and there's a 4x version that would match the HighPoint perfectly. At the heart of the device is a 32-lane 6-port Switchtec PFX-L 32xG PCIe switch with a x16 upstream port. The Quad supports RAID mode setup via OS or through a third-party RAID management software. With the present-day largest single M.2 NVMe SSD of 2TB in the market, the maximum storage reaches up to 8TB capacity totally by way of four M.2 NVMe SSDs installed inside. Supports all Thunderbolt™ 3 capable Mac and PC. The expansion card features a x8 physical interface that has more than enough bandwidth for two NVMe devices. independently or as part of a RAID 0, 1, or 1/0 array. Key Features. However, laying my hands on the perfect one was a little difficult for me, and I guess it’s the same for you. Like all HighPoint Thunderbolt™ 3 I/O Solutions, the RocketStor 6661A-NVMe was designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. RAID cards accommodate various kinds of storage devices from HDDs, SAS drives, and solid-state drives. With three M.2 ports and four SFF-8643 connectors, they can host a whopping 19 storage devices. Thunderbolt™ 3 to NVMe RAID storage adapter, Flexible capacity, Supports up to 4x M.2 NVMe SSD's, Supports all Thunderbolt™ 3 capable Mac and PC, Delivers up to 2,800MB/s of real-world transfer performance. The ADWITS Quad is a flexible and cost-effective RAID solution that we highly recommend. DisplayPort. With Software RAID, even if the write performance per NVMe is low, it adds up.

The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe includes our intuitive NVMe Manager interface, which allows users of any experience 2) Thunderbolt 3 reach speed up to 40Gbps theoretically. Thunderbolt™ 3 to NVMe RAID storage adapter. If you plan to use slower NVMe drives, do the math to ensure that your RAID card does not bottleneck your drives. Thunderbolt™3 (USB-C) Data Transfer Rate: 40Gbps: NVMe Interface: Two M.2 x4 M key (Two PCIe 3.0 x2 electrical) NVMe Type: Supports 2242 / 2260 / 2280 / 22110 PCIe SSD: Capacity: NVMe SSD sold separately: RAID Mode: JBOD (RAID 0 or 1 can be provided by OS) Configurations: A Single volume (single M.2 NVMe SSD is installed as JBOD mode) applications that require maximum sustained read and write speeds. This is also true with RAID cards. The add-on card comes with a large heatsink to cool the solid-state drives. The expansion card features four M.2 slots with a x16 interface. Downstream, the ASM2824 fans out to four x4 ports for each M.2 slot. The second port operates the same as a Thunderbolt 3 computer port by supporting Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices. 3rd Oct 2019. Netstor NA622TB3 storage is created to support up to four M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs. NVMe allows for incredibly fast data access, and most of the best enclosures use the USB 3.1 standard. This configuration allows both cards to run twice the speed and twice the capacity of a single card. Downstream, the four M.2 slots are each allotted with a dedicated x4 bandwidth. level quickly configure the M.2 SSDs into RAID arrays or as stand-alone drives. Thunderbolt 3: Yes OS Supported: Computer with a Thunderbolt 3 Port Windows 10 64-bit, and Windows Server 2016 macOS 10.9 or later Power Supply: Power Supply: External 60W Power Supply AC Input: 100-240V, 50-60 Hz Dimensions: 6.42" x 2.25" x 10.12" Model #: RS6661A-NVMe Return Policy: View Return Policy
