Designed for desktop & workstation platforms, the NVMe U.2 RAID Controller from HighPoint delivers transfer performance up to 8 times faster than onboard NVMe solutions, and up to 44 times faster than conventional SATA SSDs. The SSD7120's hardware architecture provides four dedicated PCIe 3.0 x4 bus bandwidth for each U.2 SSD, unlocking the performance potential of NVMe-based storage configurations. Equipped with four U.2 NVMe ports, the SSD7120 can host up to 8TB of fast NVMe RAID storage. The U.2 ports simplify upgrade and maintenance procedures and are compatible with a wide range of 2.5" rackmount chassis.

Dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 Shatters the DMI Performance Bottleneck

Similar to video cards, the SSD7120 delivers dedicated PCI 3.0 x16 bus bandwidth to enhance performance. Unlike onboard DMI 3.0 based NVMe solutions, which are forced to share a single PCIe 3.0 x4 lane with the motherboard's SATA and USB ports, SSD7100 series RAID Controllers feature dedicated PCI 3.0 x16 bus bandwidth. This architecture allows each SSD to interface directly with the platform's CPU, shattering the constrictive performance bottleneck imposed by DMI 3.0 and unlocking the true potential of your NVMe storage.

Independent, Standalone NVMe SSD Solution

The SSD7120 RAID controller is a fully independent NVMe RAID solution, and is not tethered to specific motherboards or chipset families. Any system sporting a free PCIe 3.0 x16 slot with direct access to the CPU is fair game, making this RAID controller suitable for use with a wide variety of high-end desktops, custom gaming PCs, and media workstations.

Flexible 2.5" U.2 Form Factor

The U.2 ports provide flexibility when selecting a hardware platform. The connectors are compatible with a wide selection of 2.5" form-factor rackmount chassis. In addition, the industry-standard SFF-8639 connectors accept cables of varying length, allowing the SSD7120 RAID controller to be easily integrated into custom chassis. This design simplifies field upgrades and maintenance sessions, and is ideal for chassis that require removable drive trays for quick access to storage devices.

Maximizing Your NVMe RAID Performance

The SSD7120 aims at making NVMe storage expansion quick, painless, and intuitive for users of any experience level.

Scale Performance Across Multiple SSD7100 Series RAID Controllers

Multiple SSD7120 NVMe RAID controllers can be linked and installed into a single system to deliver up to 256 Gb/s of performance—eight times faster than NVMe drives locked behind the Intel DMI 3.0 architecture. A single SSD7120 controller can aggregate multiple NVMe SSDs at PCIe x16 bandwidth, and double that when used in dual configurations.

NVMe RAID Management with Integrated TRIM & S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring with TBW Tracking

The NVMe Manager portion of the RAID Management interface features TRIM support, and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring with total Terabyte Written (TBW) tracking. TRIM support promotes the longevity and endurance of NVMe storage by enabling each SSD to handle garbage collection more efficiently, which helps eliminate write speed degradation. S.M.A.R.T. monitoring allows you to check a variety of physical attributes of each NVMe SSD, including temperature readings, voltage, and TBW. The interface updates attribute data in real time, and can be even be configured to notify you by email in the event of an error condition or threshold warning.

question

If installed on an older machine without NVMe in its BIOS, will this enable that machine to boot on NVMe cards in this controller?
Asked by: Victor R.
If you want NVMe controller that supports booting, please look into the SSD 7110 instead (<a href= https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1413210-REG/highpoint_ssd7110_ssd_7110_3x_m_2.html target= _blank >https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1413210-REG/highpoint_ssd7110_ssd_7110_3x_m_2.html</a>). For the SSD 7110, you should be able to boot with the NVMe drives on an older machine. However, we would recommend you to look into our compatibility list.
