The Best of Both Worlds: Massive Storage Capacity & Performance Potential
The SSD7540 delivers unprecedented levels of PCIe Gen4 transfer performance and capacity. The eight independent M.2 ports are powreed by state of the art PCIe shwitch technology and the latest iteration of HighPoint’s blazing fast NVMe RAID engine. This potent combination is capable of delivering an unbeatable 28,000MB/s of transfer performance while supporting up to 64TB of storage!
Performance Focused Hardware Architecture
HighPoint’s unique performance-focused NVMe architecture utilizes intelligent switch technology to allocate up to x4 lanes of bandwidth to each NVMe device port. This enables the SSD7540 8-port M.2 RAID controller to fully saturate x16 lanes of host bandwidth using as little as four NVMe SSDs.
However, additional SSDs can be added to maximize storage capacity, or fine tune the configuration for a specific application by optimizing a RAID array for sequential or random I/O.
Stand-Alone PCIe Gen4 NVMe RAID Solutions
SSD7500 series controllers are truly independent NVMe RAID solutions; they do not require motherboard platforms with Bifurcation support, or any specialized software released by SSD manufactures. Any AMD or Intel based system with a dedicated PCIe 4.0 x16 slot can now take full advantage of the industry’s fastest storage media. In addition, SSD7500 series NVMe RAID controllers can be used to host bootable RAID or single NVMe SSD configurations for Windows and Linux platforms.
Advanced Gen4 Cooling System Eliminates Thermal Throttling
HighPoint’s Low-Noise Hyper-Cooling solution eliminates the risk of thermal throttling by ensuring PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSDs consistently operate within their recommended temperature thresholds, even under sustained heavy I/O. Each controller features a full length anodized aluminum heat sink that is equipped with one or more ultra-durable, low-decible fans and high-conductivity thermal pads. This innovative, ultra- efficient cooling system rapidly transfers waste heat away from critical NVMe and controller componentry, without introducing unwanted distraction into your work environment.
