Tiering
StarTech ID: PEXMSATA3422
The PEXMSATA3422 PCI Express SATA Card helps you improve the overall speed and storage capacity of
your computer by giving you multiple 6 Gbps SATA connections for connecting high-performance SSDs (Solid
State Drives) and hard drives in a HyperDuo RAID array. Now, you can easily add two mSATA slots and two
SATA III ports to your computer through a single PCIe x4 slot.
Featuring HyperDuo technology, the SATA card offers SSD auto-tiering which lets you balance the performance
advantages of SSD storage with the cost-effectiveness and large capacity of standard hard drives. By combining
SSD and HDD drives into a single volume (up to 3 SSD + 1 HDD), HyperDuo discreetly works in the background
to identify and move frequently accessed files to the faster SSD drive(s) for improved data throughput – up to
80% of SSD performance! (Note: The HyperDuo automatic storage tiering feature is compatible with Windows®
8, 7, Vista, and XP only)
This versatile RAID controller card helps to relieve the internal space constraints often associated with multidrive configurations by letting you install two mSATA SSDs directly to the card via convenient, latching slots.
With dual mSATA slots, as well as two internal SATA ports, the card offers an effective hardware RAID solution,
with native RAID (0, 1, 1+0) support.
The PCIe SATA controller also offers Port Multiplier (PM) support, so you can connect multiple SATA drives to
just one port, for a total of 7 drives (up to 4 drives through PM on one port, plus a single drive to the other SATA
port and two mSATA slots).
For added versatility, the controller card is equipped with a standard profile bracket and includes a lowprofile/half-height bracket for installation in small form-factor computers.

Note
The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface. If used with PCI Express
Gen 1.0 enabled computers, the max throughput is 2.5 Gbps per lane. If used with PCI Express
Gen 2.0 enabled computers, the max throughput is 5 Gbps per lane. Only one port can use the
Port Multiplier feature at a time. Supports up to 4 drives connected via Port Multiplier, 7 drives
total. Port Multiplier not supported in Mac OS.
