A-560 is a single-chip, PCI Express to four SATA Gen III 6Gb/s channels host controller that brings server-class features to the desktop.
Configured with one hard drive and one SSD, the breakthrough technology HyperDuo uses intelligent algorithms to automatically migrate hot data to the SSD, while enabling all data to be safely stored on a larger capacity SATA HDD.
HyperDuo enables 80% of the performance of a SSD at one-third the cost. Besides, PCI Express 2.0 double the bandwidth of the existing PCI Express bus for faster data throughput.
Each PCI-Express 2.0 lane provides up to 5Gb/s of throughput.
Using the onboard RAID firmware, the 4 SATA drives attached to this controller can be easily configured as 4 individual drive with no RAID or with RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, HyperDuo.
