GRAID's latest 110GBps PCIe 4.0SSD has been announced ...

GRAID has launched the SupremeRAID SR-1010 RAID data center storage card this week, then upgraded to PCIe 4.0 just months after its PCIe 3.0 predecessor. Like the SR-1000, which had already launched last October, the new model has a blistering max sequential read speed of 110GB/s, but has doubled its max write speed from 11GB to 22GB/s.

Both versions of Windows are slow, but the performance they do achieve on Microsoft''s OS is still outstanding. By comparison, Other World Computing''s OWC Accelsior 8MW, which was first released last November, has a 26GB max speed.

The performance of GRAID''s SSDs comes in part from their unique hardware design. If the picture above appears like a GPU, that''s because it is. The SR-1010 is based on Nvidia''s RTX A2000 workstation graphics card. Alongside granting GRAID''s SSDs greater strength, GPU technology allows them to process the I/O themselves, bypassing the CPU.

The SR-1010 comes with RAID levels 1, 1, 5, 6, and 10, as well as several Linux distros. GRAID''s authorized resellers and OEMs plan to begin offering it on May 1.
