    So still supports raid-Z and btrfs just fine?

    10 drives seems rather a lot for a RAID 5 stripe set anyway.

    Yeah unless the drives are pretty small RAID 5 would be a complete non-starter. RAID 6 is also pushing it with 10 normal size drives.

    Whether it matters for those with several smaller arrays is unclear. Either way it's not likely to affect me since I no longer use RAID..

    Re: Haswell-E platform driver issue affects SATA ports

    But what about the 10 ports being used for 2 arrays of 5 drives each. 2 x 5 =10. Advertising 10 ports then reducing features and flexibility is still misleading to buyers.
