FYI: here's the Newegg page for the Syba 2.5" U.2-to-M.2 enclosure:

Finally figured out why THREADRIPPER has so many PCIe lanes (en)

Intel VROC Tested | X299 VROC vs. Z270 RST, Quad Optane vs. Quad 960 PRO: https://www.pcper.com/reviews/Storage/Intel-VROC-Tested-X299-VROC-vs-Z270-RST-Quad-Optane-vs-Quad-960-PRO
Quote:
Note how the IOPS performance of Optane is far superior to one of the fastest NAND SSDs we've tested to date. Four 960 PROs can only beat a single 32GB Optane Memory module, but can only do so at QD=32, and only because the Optane part had saturated by QD=8, giving Samsung time to catch up.

Yes, I saw that. See also my Comment here:

Chris, I believe it would help your readers a lot by elaborating on the significance of this announcement. For one, TR systems support a much larger number of PCIe lanes than the competition. And, by now the bandwidth limit imposed by Intel's DMI 3.0 link is very well documented. Although it has taken many years for hardware vendors to exploit the raw bandwidth of x16 slots for storage subsystems, the industry is now embracing that vast potential. For example, there is an obvious engineering elegance with 4 NVMe SSDs @ x4 PCIe 3.0 lanes = x16 edge connector. And, allowing modern RAID modes to span multiple add-in cards is another exciting development that clearly multiplies the raw upstream bandwidth. As such, there is now a realistic opportunity to assemble non-volatile solid-state mass storage with the same raw speed as common DDR3 DRAM! Those of us who were promoting this capability just 5 years ago were called dreamers. Just do the numbers: one x16 edge connector has a MAX HEADROOM of 15,753.6 MB/second, and twice that with two x16 edge connectors -- truly exciting!

So what benefits would you gain in RL from running multiple 960 pros in raid0?

I'm currently running 1x 1tb 960pro.
I've got 2 extra m.2 slots and an unused pci-e x16 slot.

That means I could in theory go for 7*1tb 960pros in raid0.

Outside of benchamrking, would I notice any real gains? Say loading a map in BF1, normally takes me 30 seconds. How long with this setup?

Bf1 loading is cpubound with one 960/sm961nvme. So no gains with more ssd's in raid.

When an M.2 SSD is downstream of Intel's DMI 3.0 link,
there is an absolute MAX HEADROOM of 3,938.4 MB/second
(excluding controller overhead):

8 GHz / 8.125 bits per byte x 4 PCIe 3.0 lanes = 3,938.4 MB/second

When you switch to an x16 add-in card,
MAX HEADROOM increases to 15,753.6 MB/second.

Subtract about 10% for aggregate controller overhead,
and simply scale up by the number of M.2 SSDs
installed on your add-in card.

This scaling is what AMD are reporting for their
recently announced RAID support in their X399 chipset e.g.

4 x 3,938.4 x 0.90

....

When GPU tech takes the leap that makes upgrading worth it, I can see a TR system with 4x NVMe being fun.

I don’t need lots of capacity, somewhere near 1 TB is all I would want.

At jsutter71,
I have installed on ASUS Sabertooth X99, CPU Intel i7 5930K, one HPT SSD7101A-1 rizer card and do evaluation of different RAID0 configurations such as:
RAID0 Samsung 950 PRO 1TB alone (only 2 x 512GB M.2 devices installed)
RAID0 Samsung 960 PRO 2TB alone (only 2 x 1TB M.2 devices installed)
RAID0 950PRO 1TB + RAID0 960PRO 2TB (4 M.2 devices installed)

I observe very correct scale ratio 2.08 performances with 950PRO 512GB devices (not supported by HPT) and a very poor READ ratio 1.28 only for 960PRO 1TB devices.
This is frustrating.

Do you have observed a same 'bottleneck' somewhere when 960PRO 1TB are used ???
