HighPoint SSD7120 Review With Optane 900P: High-Performance RAID On A Budget

Cons: Lower random performance than a single drive.

I would think that that is a reason not to get the blessed thing unless you are living with sequential loads only. Not a database device. Useful for video editing / transcoding?

I can see enterprises doing RAID 1, but 0 really? If you benefit from striping then you might be better off RAID 0'ing Intel's P4600 NAND SSD for example. 0 brings 3 failure points: 2 drives, and the controller.

Chris, Many thanks for testing this hardware combination. For many months, I've been sharing with other Forum users my expectation that the Highpoint SSD7120 is a perfect match for this new Icy Dock 5.25" NVMe enclosure. Your readers may also want to know that Syba (and a few other vendors) are now selling a U.2-to-M.2 enclosure that houses one M.2 SSD internally, with a standard U.2 connector externally. Here's the Syba product page at Newegg: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817801139&Tpk=N82E16817801139

p.s. Also, I think you meant to add a photo and link to the Highpoint SSD7110. Instead, you show SSD7120 twice (see below). According to Highpoint's own specs, the SSD7110 is bootable, but it only has room for 3 x M.2 NVMe SSDs internally, and the connectors are only for SAS fan-out cables.

If anyone is interested, ASRock replied to our query with simple instructions for doing a fresh install of Windows 10 to an ASRock Ultra Quad M.2 card installed in an AMD X399 motherboard. We uploaded that .pdf file to the Internet here:
