AKIBA PC Hotline Reviews the HighPoint SSD7540

The “Monster Machine” Easily Edits 10+ Streams of RAW 8K Video with over 27GB/s of Transfer Performance!

AKIBA PC Hotline recently tested Tsukumo's BTO PC WA9A-D223/WB Workstation Platform equipped with HighPoint’s SSD7540 and eight Samsung 990PRO 2TB M.2 NVMe SSDs.

The Tsukumo workstation is powered by an AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX CPU, 256GB of RAM and a GeForce RTX3090 GPU.

The platform can support up to seven PCIe 4.0 devices at a full x16 lanes – this enabled the SSD7540 and RTX30890 to operate at full speed with minimal latency.

The SSD7540 RAID HBA directly hosted all eight 990PRO SSDs, which were configured into a single 16TB RAID 0 array that delivered read transfers of nearly 28,000MB/s, with write performance in excess of 25,000MB/s!

“…when measured with CrystalDiskMark, the speed is astonishing, with a maximum read speed of 27.8 GB / s and a maximum write speed of 25.7 GB / s...” AKIBA PC Hotline

This formidable combination is ideal for tackling Ultra-HD media editing workflows, and can easily handle 10 simultaneous RAW 8K streams using either Adobe Premiere Pro or DaVinci Resolve 18.
