Highlights for Promise Technology TX4000 ATA RAID
  • Product Type:ATA RAID Controller
  • Host Interface:PCI
  • Drive Support:4 x Physical

Marketing Information

If you are a desktop power-user who needs the capacity and performance of a four-drive RAID with cost-effective, performance-proven Ultra ATA drives, the FastTrak 4000 is designed to meet your needs. The FastTrak TX4000 provides four independent ATA channels, a solution that is optimized for four-drive RAID implementations.

In a four-drive system, the FastTrak TX4000 bypasses the master-slave implementation used with two-channel controller cards, resulting in improved data throughput and the flexibility of hot-swap support in a RAID 0+1 set-up when paired with Promise's SuperSwap hot-swap drive enclosure.

The FastTrak TX4000 supports RAID 0, RAID 1, and RAID 0+1 configurations.

With a FastTrak TX4000 controller, you also get the benefit of Promise Technology's industry-leading ATA feature set. To assure faster transfers, Promise's ATA software uses sophisticated handling techniques to make data transfers more efficient and minimize overloading the host system CPU and slowing system response. Every Promise controller also supports drive capacities exceeding 137GB. Promise cards can be used on both 33MHz and 66MHz PCI bus motherboards for wider compatibility and improved performance.
