GPU

HighPoint SSD7101A Delivers Dedicated PCIe 3.0 x4 bus bandwidth for each SDD

Onboard NVMe solutions are attached to the Intel PCH and forced to share the PCIe 3.0 x4 DMI bandwidth with onboard SATA or USB ports.

The SSD7101A avoids this performance bottleneck by interfacing directly with the system CPU's PCIe lane. Similar in concept to professional GPU adapters with integrated SSD’s, this unique architecture allows the drive to interface directly with the host CPU’s PCIe lane and provide PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth for each SSD.

Up to 41.6x Faster than SATA SSD’s!

The SSD7101A Drive series is a revolutionary NVMe SSD RAID Solution that intelligently utilizes the powerful resources of modern PC platforms. Unhindered by SAS and SATA interfaces, the integrated NVMe technology allows each SSD7101A to take full advantage of PCIe 3.0’s superior transfer bandwidth and deliver a level of performance never before experienced by mainstream PC environments.

Affordable Performance Scalability

Customers can easily scale SSD7101A solutions to meet the requirements of specific applications, and at an affordable price point. Single SSD7101A’s can aggregate up to four M.2 SSD modules at PCIe x16 and 4TB of storage capacity, or as many as eight modules with Dual SSD7101A’s, and 8TB of storage capacity, all at a price per GB that is in parity with that of traditional SATA SSD-based secondary storage solutions.

Robust and Streamlined Design Protects and Cools SSD Modules

It’s no secret that PCIe devices can generate a great deal of heat, especially during peak operation. HighPoint is no stranger to PCIe design, and has engineered the SSD71001A Drive Series to excel in high-stress conditions. The all-aluminum casing naturally dissipates waste heat away from the SSD modules, and features an integrated fan and heat sink that work in conjunction to eject excess heat away from vital components and keep ambient temperatures manageable and cool.

HighPoint NVMe Manager

SSD7101A Series drives feature an easy to configure SSD drive module with integrated TRIM support and SMART monitoring. TRIM support promotes the longevity and endurance of each SSD while SMART monitoring allows customers to keep close tabs on the physical attributes of each device.

The simple, intuitive interface provides a wealth of monitoring and configuration options for novice and experts alike. The Quick Configuration menu allow new users to get everything up and running with a few simple clicks. In depth, Advanced Options allow experienced pros to fine tune configurations for specific applications.

S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring - the interface includes a SMART monitoring feature which allows you to check a variety of physical attributes of each SSD, including temperature readings, total bytes written and disk usage values
