Intel RS3WC080 overview

  • 1Description

The RS3WC080 12 Gb/s PCIe 3.0 SAS/SATA RAID Controller Card from Intel is a mainstream RAID controller card with internal mini-SAS HD SFF8643 SAS/SATA connectors for connectivity inside the server. This controller card provides performance and scalability, without relying on system resources for RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, and 50. It uses the embedded CPU in an LSI 3008 ASIC to perform RAID 0, 1 and 10 operations. The ultra-thin driver uses low RAID overhead for high host CPU offload, with optimal read and write performance.

The RAID controller also offers backwards compatibility, which can enhance the performance of 3 Gb/s and 6 Gb/s infrastructures. It supports up to 128 physical devices, multiple RAID arrays, and industry-leading interoperability.

The 12 Gb/s SAS-3 technology doubles the available bandwidth of current 6 Gb/s SAS solutions, unlocking the full potential of PCIe 3.0-based systems, and solid-state storage solutions. The throughput and I/O processing capabilities maximize link utilization, thereby supporting high performance SSDs and increased scaling of traditional hard disk drives.

Over 1 Million IOPS
LSI SAS 3108 I/O processor supports 1 million+ IOPS 1
mini-SAS Connectors
Up to 2 internal high density mini-SAS connectors with eight ports of 12 Gb/s bandwidth per port
PCIe Connector
