“In the future, graphics cards will drive SSDs”

At first glance, the SupremeRAID SR-1010 looks like a graphics card, but it is hardware focused on managing multiple solid-state storage drives or SSDs in a data center or server. It’s actually both, and it’s an example of how graphics hardware has evolved since it stopped focusing only on displaying beautiful graphics for video games.

The product we are talking about now is not new, since it was released in a limited way in the summer of last year, but it demonstrates one of the inherent problems of adopting SSD drives as a storage method. Having to manage the large volume of data moving through from the drive to RAM via the PCI Express interface can suffocate entire CPU cores.

The solution? The use of support processors in charge of managing said communication and that leave the main processor free for its usual tasks. This is the case of the new generation Xbox Series and PlayStation 5 consoles, which integrate specific domain processors and fixed function units that together not only manage data copying, but also the ability to compress and decompress data.
