Weekly ASCII benches the HighPoint SSD7101A-1 + 4x Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSD’s
Weekly ASCII has recently published an online review of several HighPoint NVMe RAID solutions available for macOS platforms. The products were tested using a 2019 Mac Pro workstation and Samsung NVMe SSD’s; the 970 EVO Plus M.2 SSD and the 983 DCT series U.2 SSD’s.
The SSD7101A-1 was able to deliver over 14,200MB/s of transfer performance using four 970 EVO’s configured as a RAID 0!
The SSD6540 U.2 NVMe RAID Enclosure was also tested, and is a great solution when you need more capacity, or a way to connect high-speed storage to more than one system (for example, from your home to the workplace environment). The controller card is silent as it does not need a cooling fan, and the performance still exceeded the test requirement, even with the base model U.2 drive (983 DCT).
