Highest performance SATA II RAID
The 3ware 9550SX PCI-X to SATA II RAID controller delivers over 800MB/sec RAID 5 reads and exceeds 380MB/sec RAID 5 writes, making it 200% faster than the industry-leading 3ware 9500S RAID controller.

7th generation StorSwitch™ non-blocking switch fabric technology and sophisticated SATA II features including 3 Gbps transfer speed, Native Command Queuing (NCQ), and Port Multiplier support drive this unmatched performance.

Combined with an advanced RAID management feature set that includes web-based, command-based, and API software components, the 9550SX, available in 4, 8, 12, and 16-port configurations, is the most compelling RAID solution available.
