8 Port PCIe Gen 4.0 Cost-Effective RAID Adapter

1x Internal SlimSAS (SFF-8654 8i)

ARC-1686-8I/8X PCIe Gen 4.0 Cost-Effective RAID Adapters is built to deliver unprecedented performance, using only carefully, best-in-class components. These include the dual core Broadcom SAS3908, PCIe Gen 4.0 and tri-mode ROC.

At the heart of ARC-1686-8I/8X is the incredibly powerful Broadcom SAS3908 dual-core ARM A15 tri-mode ROC, giving effortless performance as desirable. It delivers storage interface PCIe Gen 4 NVMe, 12Gb/s SAS, 6Gb/s SATA, and the security of data protection. Damage in a software RAID is considered as the consumption of massive computation and memory bandwidth on the host. The ARC-1686-8I/8X hardware RAID relieves the parity generation burden from the host and maximizes application processing performance.
