Adaptec to Demo 6600 MB/s Bandwidth Over PCIe 3.0

The technology will leverage PMC Sierra's 24-port SRCv RAID-on-Chip with a PCI Express 3.0 interface. According to Adaptec, the new PMC RoC can support twice the bandwidth of a previous generation RoC, with twice the bandwidth on the PCIe interface and three times the bandwidth on the SAS interfaces.

There was no information which server platform the demonstration will be based on, or whether demonstration will include hard drives or solid state disk drives. However, it appears that Adaptec will become the first company to offer a 6Gb/s SAS RAID controller based on PCIe 3.0.

Adaptec will be showcasing the technology at CeBit at the Storage Pavillion. CeBit will be held from March 6 to 10 in Hannover, Germany.

    Now that is what I need, tired of sluggish onboard sata raid controllers that produce lag on top of already lagging mechanical drives while I am editing videos or multi boxing wow X.X

    It would have to be SSDs. How else could you get 6600 MB/s from 24 drives. You need to get ~275 MB/s from each drive, and you can't get that from a HDD.

    Doesn't this mean we might some day have PCIe 3.0 SSDs delivering 6600 MBps?
