Biwin Enters the PCIe Race, on the road to bi-winning

Biwin splashes down into the PCIe SSD game

By Chris Ramseyer from Jun 6, 2012 @ 6:40 CDT

Computex 2012 - Biwin, the Chinese SSD manufacturer with their sights set on the US market today unveiled a new PCI Express 8-lane product. The new PCIe card using a LSI 1064E controller but there are two significant downsides. The first is the PCIe interface is PCIe 1.0 and the second is the flash is asynchronous. A SLC model is in the works though but the cost of ownership will be significantly higher we expect.

The card was under glass so we didn't get a very good shot of it but we promise to have some more data to share tomorrow.

On the screen, Biwin had an ATTO run to display. The numbers look very good but we expect more from the SLC model.
