Using up to two (2) PCI-Express Gen 2.0 (Gen 1.0 compatible) x2 lanes, this controller offers a 10Gbps bandwidth, a new bandwidth level of JBOD/RAID for SATA III

An embedded ARM-based CPU makes this product a pure hardware RAID controller and enables in-box driver support without additional driver installation. The included Marvell Storage Utility (MSU) provides a user-friendly interface to end users, while the Marvell RAID driver allows the drives to be used with a SATA port multiplier for increased system performance and capacity.

The Marvell HyperDuo offers a breakthrough embedded technology for new generation 6Gb/s SATA Controllers, enabled on the Marvell 88SE9230 and 88SE9220. Based on years of research and patent-pending software and hardware, HyperDuo enables 80 percent of the performance of an SSD at less than half the cost. Configured with one hard drive and multiple SSDs, HyperDuo uses intelligent algorithms to automatically migrate hot data to the SSD while enabling all data to be safely stored on a larger capacity SATA HDD for higher input/output operations per second (IOPS), throughput and capacity

With four (4) independent SATA 6Gb/s ports via 4x SATA 7pins ports, configured as RAID0 via our sBOX-S6 Here are the our screen shots:

Connect as Gen2 5Gb per lanes and HDD is connected as 6Gb/s per drives

Connect HDD as SATA III

Read and Write Speed as RAID0 over 500MB/s

Frequently Asked Questions Q: The tests in the description show that you are using a 5gbps connection but it shows that it supports 10gbps. Is it possible to achieve 1000 MiB/s speeds with the card? A: This card supports two lanes of PCIe V2 (5Gb/lane) Therefore the bandwidth is 10Gb/s when we connect to test (2x lanes) or 5Gb+5Gb. To archive 1000MB/s there are more than just a host controller. 1) Drives - with 4x 3.5 HDD you would not able to obtain 1000MB/s, you may able to do that with 4x SSD SATA III 2) Host controller - must have the overall bus twice as much, to get 1000MB, the host must be able to handle 2000MB/s data transfer 3) Overall bandwidth: End to End bandwidth needs to be at least 1.65% of the desired transfer rate, the example of 1000MB/s transfer rate overall bandwidth needs to be 1650MB/s The answer to your question is NO, it can not, you need a higher bandwidth card Q: Doesn't seem to support my 6TB drives is this true? A: No, that is not true. Our card has 48bit LBA meaning it will address up to 64TB per port. We have tested with 10TB HDD Q: Does this card support JBOD? The 88SE9230 specs do not mention it at all, but the description does. A: Yes, our card supports JBOD and RAID function
