Toshiba PX02SM Series SAS3 Enterprise SSD Review Discussion

2 posts in this topic

The Toshiba PX02SM is an enterprise SSD which utilizes a dual port 12Gb/s SAS interface and eMLC NAND and achieved promising results in our early review of the drive. The PX02SM was the first 12Gb/s SAS SSD on the market, predating access to SAS3 adapters that could allow the StorageReview Enterprise Test Lab to measure its maximum performance with sequential workloads. With the addition of a Supermicro SuperStorage Server AR24NV SAS3 platform to the lab, we can revisit the PX02SM and put it through its paces without HBA bottlenecks from the host or custom configurations.

Where are the voltage regulators? I am curious why the SSD needs both 5V and 12V power, I assume it's so the SAS interface isn't stressed by just 1 voltage powering the whole drive, but it doesn't take that much power anyway. 5V and 12V power will all be reduced to the right voltage for the chips.
