    Broadcom LSI SAS 9400-16i (05-50008-00) 12Gb 16 Port HBA - New Sealed Box | eBay $250

    Broadcom LSI SAS 9400-8e (05-50013-01) 12Gb 8 Port HBA - New Sealed Box | eBay $180

    Broadcom LSI SAS 9300-16i (05-25600-00) 12Gb 16 Port HBA - New Sealed Box 830343003440 | eBay $290

    I wished I had cash to spare...

    They have plenty apparently , currently 9 left in first auction, I expect the price to rise if they sell quickly;)

    Seller has sold computer items before but has been out for 6 months, so a potential risk of fraud exists - "Free overnight shipping" sounds a bit dubious in addition to the cheap price...

    Its Paypal though...

    Yeah that overnight shipping and 6mo gap is setting off alarms for me too.

    Too bad Broadcom LSI SAS 9460-16i 4gb cache not available

    One thing though, 94xx are x8 lane PCI Express® 3.1 not x16 Host PCIe (those end with 94xx w)

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a comparison of the various chips? Not sure if any of those cards would be an upgrade compared to my SAS3008 :-/

    Unless you're running a huge array of SSD, don't think it wouldn't be much of a difference.

    The LSI SAS 9400-16i is appealing.

    16 SAS link can fully goes on 8 PCie 3.0 lanes ?

    Thanks, that's what I figured. Yet, it's somewhat baffling that a simple comparison of the different chip generations doesn't seem to exist. The best I could find is a matrix from 2012 compiled by Patrick.

    This one?: upload_2019-6-16_19-13-12.png

    Supermicro 2u-4u backplanes in the corresponding chassis as well as norco/chenbro 2-4U are the most commonly used other than breakout cables directly to the drives, third is probably the mobile racks such as this: Supermicro | Products | Accessories | Mobile Racks | CSE-M28SAB

    M.2 NVMe + M.2 SATA for Tri-Mode Backplane Adapter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DPSZXC2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_GhUbDb98B3VQT

    I was talking about the backplane here,
    Kinda confused with that page, they seem to be selling the housing for nvme, but there's also backplane part required, i dont think the chassis you mentioned has that backplane?

    Ah, I think the backplane/card has to support the pcie lane sharing or auto expanding. It has to do with the sas port/backplane directly I think.

    I’m not familiar with that enough to give a detailed answer.

    I couldn't get either of these cards to see any of my NVME HGST drives - it mentions a specific cable to connect with card and backplane..

    Nice to see the price of the 3rd Gen's coming down, albeit a tad wee bit still expensive. I think best to snag the 16i at this price point over the 8i.

    9300-16i is actually 2x 3008. So little power hungry and has a auxiliary power connector in case the PCIe slot isn't capable of supplying more than 25W.
