Computex 2014 - Marvell displayed their SATA Express solutions at Computex 2014, including a SATA Express to M.2 enclosure. This allows the use of M.2 SSDs with SATA Express cabling and utilizing a 2.5" enclosure.

The emergence of SATA Express as an interconnect will create an entire ecosystem of products built to take advantage of the increased throughput of the PCIe bus.

The 5th generation Marvell 88SS1074 is a SATA SSD controller compatible with 15nm TLC NAND. This controller is using the SSD controller industries' smallest process at 28nm CMOS. This controller is optimized for the M.2 form factor. Marvell's 3rd gen LDPC technology is a big reason the controller can deal with the higher error rates of TLC NAND, which we covered more in-depth here.

Marvell solutions are utilized by a wide range of SSD manufacturers in numerous applications from 6Gb/s SAS and SATA to 12Gb/s SAS and soon M.2 applications.

The quest for benchmark world records led Paul further and further down the overclocking rabbit hole. SSDs and RAID controllers were a big part of that equation, allowing him to push performance to the bleeding edge. Finding the fastest and most extreme storage solutions led to experience with a myriad of high-end enterprise devices. Soon testing SSDs and Enterprise RAID controllers at the limits of their performance became Paul's real passion, one that is carried out through writing articles and reviews.
