LSI Corp. has released new controller firmware for its 3ware 9650SE SATA RAID controller cards, which provides support for Intel X25-E Extreme SATA solid state drives (SSDs). The firmware upgrade is designed to provide full compliance with the Intel SSDs for servers, storage and high-end workstations.

Intel X25-E Extreme SSDs are based on single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash technology to offer fast read and write times, and high reliability. The LSI 3ware 9650SE PCIe to SATA RAID controllers complement the Intel drives with high-performance and high-reliability hardware RAID protection.

"LSI controller cards play a pivotal role in maximizing solid state drive performance and protecting existing investments in hard disk drives," said Brent Blanchard, director of worldwide channel sales and marketing at LSI.

The LSI 3ware 9650SE SATA controllers are available in a variety of port configurations through the LSI worldwide network of distributors, integrators and VARs. New and existing customers may upgrade to the LSI 3ware 9.5.2 firmware for free at
