XFX SP-PCC3-H Product Details
The Revolution in Home Multimedia
Revo64 is a new family of ATA and Serial-ATA storage accelerator PCI adapter cards based upon the Revolution storage processor from Netcell Corporation. The Revo64 storage accelerator card features a revolutionary new 64-bit RAID engine, offering for the first time a mainstream storage processing solution with the simultaneous benefits of both RAID 0-class performance and RAID 5-class data protection.
Revo64 is specifically designed to overcome the limitations of traditional RAID technology and provide a solution for today's demanding storage environments, offering the fastest a Serial ATA storage performance for bandwidth-intensive desktop, workstation, and media server applications. Revo64 delivers high-end performance with low-cost drives, while providing enterprise-class security for data and content.

A Closer Look
- 100% Hardware RAID Engine
Powered by a 100% hardware-based RAID engine, the Revo64 storage accelerator card provides the industry’s only true hardware RAID 0, 1, 3, and JBOD storage arrays. By offloading storage processing from the host CPU, the PC’s full performance is unleashed without taxing the CPU.
- Large L2 Drive Cache
Revo64 allows users to live large. The 64MB of onboard L2 drive cache enables applications and the OS to run faster by providing up to 8-16 times more cache than an average hard drive.
- Revolution Storage Processor
The Revo64 storage accelerator card is powered by the Netcell Revolution storage processing unit (SPU) – a single-chip 64-bit hardware RAID ATA and Serial-ATA controller that contains a 64-bit/100MHz SDRAM interface, an internal 64-bit data path that provides up to 800MB/sec on-chip data rates and a scatter/gather DMA architecture.
- Instant Crash Protection™
Revo 64 provides video-broadcast-class data protection by providing always-on continuous data protection that automatically detects drive failure, protects valuable data, and allows drive replacement and rebuild without interruption to the user.
- Breakthrough RAID Performance
The Revo64 storage acceleration card includes full support for RAID 3, the successor to RAID 5 technology. Specifically designed to overcome the limitations of traditional RAID technology, Revo64 provides a solution for today's demanding storage environments, offering the fastest available ATA and Serial ATA storage performance for bandwidth-intensive desktop, workstation, and media server applications. Revo64 delivers high-end performance with low-cost drives, while providing enterprise-class security for data and content.
- Data Migration
Allows users to automatically move or migrate data from one hard drive to another. Data Migration also allows users to seamlessly increase capacity by adding up to five drives (including the original drive) without having to move data first or re-installing the operating system.
- Highest Sustained Write Performance
The Revo64 storage accelerator card is designed to break through the hard disk performance bottleneck. It allows computer users to double and even quadruple the performance of their PC storage systems, accomplishing this by allowing disks to be combined together to act as one large, very fast hard drive.
- XceleratOR™ Engine
The Netcell XceleratOR Engine is Netcell's integrated hardware XOR Engine that computes parity data on-the-fly to provide for system redundancy. It works by transparently breaking data into small pieces known as "words", which are written to or read from all of the drives synchronously. By contrast, traditional cards based on RAID 5 technology use much larger data blocks and access data sequentially from one drive at a time. When writing to a disk, traditional cards must first read the entire stripe from all drives in the array, then make a complex parity calculation before they can perform the write operation. The Netcell Revolution SPU uses it’s highly efficient hardware XceleratOR engine to eliminate the time consuming three-step "read-modify-write" operations, resulting in higher overall throughput for both reading and writing operations.
- Zero Drivers™
The Revo64 storage accelerator card is driverless by design and is the world's first and only driverless storage adapter. Netcell’s patented technique for emulating a standard IDE device at the storage processor level means the Revo64 does not require any vendor-specific drivers, making is simple to install and easy to set up so that new RAID arrays can be used instantly. This means no more complex driver installs, endless device driver conflicts, and constant downloading of new driver versions. Revo64 delivers true plug-and-play simplicity.
- Zero Down Time™
Up to five hard drives of any size or brand can be used in a Revo64 array — the computer sees them as one single large drive. This not only gives you enhanced scalability as your needs grow, but also guarantees that your computer won't go down if one of the hard drives fails.
