LSI Nytro WarpDrive
The Nytro WarpDrive connects to the host via a standard PCIe 2.0 x8 connection. There is quite a bit of heft to the card due to the large heavy metal heatsinks that house the NAND.
Three LED lights that indicate the data activity, drive life, and status of the WarpDrive shine through the rear bracket.
The WarpDrive is surprisingly small for the high capacity that it offers, coming in a half-height half-length form factor.
The processor hiding under the black heatsink is the proven LSI SAS2008 PCIe to SAS Bridge. The LSI SAS2008 processor is supported by OEM integrated drivers in nearly every operating system. Flanking the processor are four power regulation capacitors.
The rear of the card holds few surprises, with a firmware chip and power management circuitry. There are also included host power-loss protection capacitors along the bottom of the card.
One of the most telling aspects is what is not there, and that is DRAM packages. SandForce processors do not utilize DRAM caching. This provides consistent performance and a higher resilience to power failures.
