LSI WarpDrive SLP300 300GB PCI Express Review - The $11.5k PCI-E SSD

Cram six SandForce SF-1500 controllers in a RAID 0 array with 384GB of SLC NAND and one high-end RAID controller on one device and what do you have? A $11,500 MSRP solid state drive that blazes up to 240k IOPs and calls your SSD a sissy. Yeah, its like that. Read on to see how the LSI WarpDrive SLP-300 performs in our test system!

Carrying six SandForce SF-1500 controllers, 384GB of SLC NAND and LSI's SAS8000 RAID controller it carries some serious hardware. At $7,500 a pop, it certainly carries an enterprise price. All of that hardware affords performance of up to 240K 4K Read IOPs and 200K 4K Write IOPs which is pretty incredible. The WarpDrive's closest consumer level competitor is the OCZ RevoDrive X2 which features four of the SandForce SF-1200 controllers in a RAID 0 array and MLC NAND. The WarpDrive has a much more compact design to accommodate narrow server racks in a data center.
