There are no real PCI-express SSD controllers; so OCZ uses SATA SSD controllers and a RAID controller to interface with PCI-express. Its a solution inferior to 'the real thing'. Rendering files are mostly sequential access i would think, so a large RAID of HDDs would be a possibility too. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>PCI-e ssd or ssd raid?> Related ressources: Forum2 RAID 0 SSDs vs 1 Prosumer PCI-E SSD ForumSSD Raid 0 or PCI-E SSD ForumPCI-e SSD or PCI-e RAID Card Forum2 HD Raid , C drive is PCI-E SSD ?
