    I believe I have access to Broadcom 9400-16i's. I'll be purchasing several for testing. Is there anyone else who would like to piggy back off my order?

    I know how STH posts work, but let's try to keep this post somewhat under wraps so I don't loose the opportunity to buy them.

    Ohh, what price ? I would be in for 1 to 4 depending on cost, since you seem to have some good contacts I am hopeful on a good Low cost ? I need some SAS3 but having NVMe support would be really nice :)

    Are cables for direct connect available for these do you know ?

    Might be interested as well depending on price;)

    HBA 9400-16i and HBA 9400-8i Tri-Mode Storage Adapters Quick Installation Guide (478 KB)

    For SAS/SATA connections, connect standard 12Gb/s SAS cables with an internal Mini SAS HD
    connector on one end to connect to the controller and the appropriate connector on the other end to
    attach to the backplane or to the SAS/SATA devices.
    • For PCIe/NVMe connections, use the appropriate U.2 Enabler Cable to enable connection to the
    backplane connectors, as shown in the following figure. The U.2 Enabler Cable routes the REFCLK,
    sidebands, and PCIe signals to the appropriate pins on the backplane connector. Different U.2 Enabler
    Cables are available depending on the backplane connector type. Using standard 12Gb/s SAS cables
    for NVMe connections might result in damage to the PCIe adapter or the drive. For more information,
    refer to the Storage Adapter Cable Guide and the Broadcom MegaRAID and HBA Tri-Mode Storage
    Adapters User Guide at Support Documents and Downloads.

    CAUTION: Possible hardware damage – For NVMe connections to a SFF-8639 (U.2) bay or connections
    to a PCIe switch, use only approved cables with REFCLK forwarded on the proper pins.
    Improperly connecting a standard 12G SAS cable to a SFF-8639 bay could damage the PCIe
    storage adapter and the drive.

    Like other who already posted, I'm also interested in one depending on price of the unit. But one thing to be noted is that a new product firmware will generally have bugs not suitable for mission critical system.

    Did anyone get the NVMe profiles to work?
    I got 2 of these and NVMe U.2 Cards wont work with SFF-8639 (U.2). - yes i use specifically designed u.2 minisashd cables from delock.

    My Samsung EVO M.2 SSDs never show up.

    Anyone has any idea?

    I belive there's no need for "IT mode" Since it's a HBA, and already has Direct Attached Storage mode.

    I don't think this is relevant any more since they are publicly available now;)
    Back when the post was made they were still hard/impossible to get officially:)
