This 21 SSD PCIe card with a 336TB capacity to cost around $45,000

Back in March 2023, Apex Storage, a specialist in large capacity, multi-SSD storage, unveiled an add-in card (AIC) that can accommodate a whopping 21 PCIe SSD. Earlier today Sabrent, a popular storage vendor, confirmed that they will sell the card as the Sabrent Apex X21 destroyer with a price tag likely to be around $3,000 without any SSDs.

At the heart of the X21 is the HighPoint SSD7540 PCIe Gen4 x16 RAID card which has been tweaked to accommodate 21 cards. Why 21? Because that’s the maximum number cards that Apex could physically fit on the AIC.
