SSD7202

Bootable PCIe 3.0 x8 2-Port M.2 NVMe RAID HBA


Industry's Most Affordable Dual-Port Bootable M.2 NVMe RAID HBA


Cost-Effective Bootable Gen3 NVMe RAID Solution

The SSD7202 is a cost-effective, low-profile, bootable NVMe RAID solution for Windows and Linux platforms that is capable of delivering up to 7,000 MB/s of transfer performance from a pair of off-the-shelf M.2 SSDs.

Each SSD7202 controller benefits from our industry-leading NVMe RAID architecture, and can support striping, mirroring or single disk configurations for up to two 2242, 2260 or 2280 M.2 NVMe SSDs.


Compact Form-Factor & Universal Compatibility

The SSD7202's compact, half-height form factor and PCIe 3.0 x8 interface enables it to be easily integrated into any Intel or AMD based platform with a free PCIe 3.0/4.0 slot with x8 or x16 lanes.


Advanced Bootable NVMe RAID Technology

The SSD7202 NVME RAID controller can be used to configure bootable RAID or single NVMe SSD configurations for Windows and Linux systems. Optional UEFI downloads and complete installation guides are available for each supported platform.

The SSD7202 is powered by HighPoint's industry proven NVMe RAID stack and is capable of supporting RAID 0, 1 arrays and single-drives, including mixed configurations of single-disks and arrays, or multiple arrays.


Ultra-Efficient, Low-Decibel Cooling Solution

The SSD7202's advanced cooling system ensures hosted NVMe SSDs consistently operate within their recommended temperature thresholds, even under sustained heavy I/O, by combining a full-length anodized aluminum heat sink with an ultra-durable, near-silent fan, and high-conductivity thermal padding.
