Very interesting M.2 PCIe storage expansion card (for SATA disks)


Recommended Posts

I just stumbled upon this this Silverstone "ECS07 - 5-Port SATA Gen3 6Gbps Non-RAID M.2 PCIe storage expansion card".

I just wanted to mention it because it seems like a very interesting alternative. If a Mobo has 2 M.2 slots one could easily add 10 SATA ports. If they work as advertised, I would certainly prefer them to HBAs.

 

One big caveat is that the price has not been released yet so I dont know if they cost 50 or 500 euros....

It even have 8 SATA (two 8087 socket) version, look like have two Jmb585 controller and test got min 190MB/s per disk.

 

Can't be two jmb585 without a PCIe switch (or a very bizarrely configured [chipset] M.2 slot with "self-bifurcation").

 

More likely ONE jmb585;  and one jmb575 port multiplier.  Cute, still ...

Agree, if look at two chip, one seems have more pin then other .... check their spec, 585 is QFN76 and 575 is QFN64. The model name was IO-M2F5875-8I
