I've seen other controllers, but this one specifically states each port is only 520mb/s. Is this also true of all other devices like this? I was assuming they could all reach the 1000mb/s that the pcie slot could reach. (plus reviews said it had problems with introducing errors.)
I have an 850 pro samsung ssd that can go up to 900mb/s reads and 550mb/s writes. I need at least that. Would other cards have this restriction?
Does anyone know of a PCIE 2.0 4x card that can get 900-1000mb/s or more per port?
I have this mobo: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-970A-D3-rev-10-11#ov
I beleive it does at least 1.2gb/s per port. I'm looking for a sata card that does that speed or a sata raid card that can take 6 sata disks in raid 10 at max speed.
Actually, I have to get a place for either some of the raid disks or for both my SSD and a seagate ST2000DM008 to have full throttle on. Is it ok to have disks in a raid on different disks? It's software raid. Would the first card be capable of handling those fully? The raid consists of 6x https://gzhls.at/blob/ldb/7/6/1/e/ee7a79edc97b885933949eeefdb2d9fbdf1b.pdf
I could possibly stick two of the raid drives on a pcie x4 and the main ssd on the mobos disks. But then I can't try to run hardware raid to see if it's any good.
