Pricing seems to be consistent from different vendors..Good point, Makes me wanna grab a few before they realize their mistake
I wondered that myself; thought they had a special slot for these type of cards maybe, but never followed up
"...up to 4 samsung 2tb pros..."Below looks cool...
HighPoint Intros SSD7101 Series PCI-Express 3.0 x16 NVMe RAID SSDs
Yes if you are needing so much performance then I would say other options may serve a purpose better, 8 x sas3 enterprise ssd for example."...up to 4 samsung 2tb pros..."
I don't know how much better the nvme samsungs are compared to the sata devices. But if they have a similar behaviour under sustained reads/writes than even pci x4 would provide more than enough bandwidth.
Can't tell exactly, but the default config for that card is to treat the PCIex16 as 4x4. It likely has to do with both PCIe lane allocation and bifurcation support in the bios.Pricing seems to be consistent from different vendors..
What I'd really like to know is what exactly makes the X10DSC+ and X10SRW-F compatible with several of these cards.. Simply a matter of testing, or is there something different on those two boards? The DSC+ has oculink on board, but the SRW-F does not:
I have a X10DRU-i+, 12 more NVMe drives, and two cpu's sitting here in boxes.. if only I had a good way to plug it all together lol.
