This product... Is it a first of it's kind? Or a first of it's kind for consumers? Meaning, does this exist already in the enterprise space in other brand-name arrays to some degree? (Though don't know of many SAN's using NVMe...)

We've been scouring the Internet for photos and references

to NVMe RAID controllers with x16 edge connectors.

The ones with x16 edge connectors were all "pass-thru" style

compatible with OS software RAID arrays, but not bootable

e.g.:

Here's a switch with 3 banks of 4 U.2 ports:

I just have to chuckle over this one:  over at Tom's Hardware,

some "guru" is trying to tell me that a single NVMe SSD

is going to perform faster than 4 x U.2 NVMe SSDs in RAID-0.

I am trying to be polite with this guy, so I replied that

I will just have to await the experimental results reported

with this new Highpoint NVMe RAID controller e.g.

with 4 x Intel model 750 NVMe SSDs.
