The SSD7204 is the industry’s best cost/performance 4-channel M.2 NVMe RAID storage soluion, and is an ideal replacement for aging SATA storage infrastructure. The dedicated PCIe 3.0 bandwidth and intelligent switch technology can allocate up to 4 lanes per NVMe SSD, and delivers over 7000 MB/s of transfer performance.

SSD7204 HBAs benefit from our industry-leading NVMe RAID engine, and can support RAID 0, 1, 10 and single disk configurations of to 4 M.2 NVMe SSDs.


Platform Independent, Universally Compatible NVMe RAID Solution

The SSD7204 NVMe RAID HBA is a fully independent NVMe storage solution; it des not require a hardware environment with Bifurcation support and can be easily integrated into any AMD or Intel computing platform with a free PCIe 3.0/4.0 x8 or x16 slot.


Industy Proven NVMe RAID Engine: The SSD7204 is powered by HighPoint's industry proven NVMe RAID stack and is capable of supporting RAID 0, 1, 10 arrays and single-drives, including mixed configurations of single-disks and arrays, or multiple arrays.


Cross-Sync RAID Technology: SSD7204 HBAs enable administrators to optimize RAID performance by scaling available bus bandwidth up to 16 lanes, and deliver up to 14,000MB/s of transfer speed.


Distraction-Free, Zero-Noise Cooling Solution

The SSD7204 is ideal for applications that require a distraction free work environment. The compact single-wdith RAID HBA can operate in complete silence, thanks to its full-length black anodized aluminum heat sink and ventilated PCIe bracket, which work in conjunction to dissipate waste heat away from critical NVMe chipset componentry and hosted M.2 NVMe SSDs.
