Mylex puts RAID on the motherboard
Mylex last month announced the AcceleRAID 200 series adapters, which add hardware RAID functionality to Intel motherboards with on-board SCSI. General availability is slated for the third quarter. The adapters include a 66MHz Intel i960RD processor, monolithic Windows NT driver, and Mylex`s 86238 controller chip and are based on the company`s DAC960PJ controller architecture. The AcceleRAID family will be available in two versions: The model 200 uses the SCSI channels on the motherboard; the model 250 adds an extra SCSI channel that supports the 80MBps Ultra-2 LVD interface. Prices are expected to start at $699 and $799, respectively.
