Final Thoughts


The move to PCI Express 3.0 is an evolution for LSI that will provide a much-needed boost in transfer performance.


When we last tested the 9265-8i with FastPath we achieved read performance in excess of 3GB/s with eight consumer Crucial C300 256GB SSDs. Given the results we achieved it was clear that RAID controller technology was ready for PCIe 3.0.


Motherboard manufactures, server OEMs and the market have adapted PCIe 3.0 whole-heartedly. The interface and bandwidth that it provides are already deployed in new systems. Going forward, PCIe 3.0 will enable storage professionals to reduce the number of servers deployed to achieve their performance goals.


We're looking forward to testing LSI's new entries to the market. In the coming days Paul will conclude his first look at a new LSI HBA with PCIe 3.0 and in the fall test a new RAID controller. TweakTown isn't abandoning the enthusiast / power user RAID controller articles. I'll have a run with the new 9271-8i around the same time TweakTown is shipping out to sunny California for LSI's AIS event.
