Note:

  1. This is just a four NVMe SSD NAS solution. Support NVMe boot with the firmware EEPROM 2024/05/17 version and later versions.
  2. Don't power the X1011 via DC powe jack and the Raspberry Pi5 via USB-C at the same time.
  3. Not compatible with M.2 SATA SSDs, M.2 PCIe AHCI SSDs, or other M.2 non-NVMe devices
  4. Older NVMe drives with less efficient flash media may not perform as well as newer drives
  5. New NVMe SSDs are not partitioned and will need to be both partitioned and formatted when first connected to the Raspberry Pi before they will be accessed in the Explorer.
  6. The Raspberry Pi 5 board, SSD, active cooler or power adapter is not included in the packing list.

Overview

The X1011 four M.2 NVMe SSD shield, designed to provide a mass-capacity storage and high-speed storage solution for your Raspberry Pi 5. Its sleek and compact design enables easy attachment of four full-size M.2 2280 SSDs to your Raspberry Pi 5. With its PCIe 2.0 interface, you can experience data transfer rates of up to 5Gbps, allowing you to effortlessly transfer large amounts of data within seconds.

The X1011 connects to the underside of the Raspberry Pi 5, eliminating the need for a passthrough for the GPIO. This means you can use your favorite HATs while also utilizing this expansion board. Moreover, the X1011 offers versatile power options – it can draw power from the Raspberry Pi5 through pogo pins using a USB-C power supply, or alternatively, power the Raspberry Pi5 from the X1011 using a DC power adapter via the onboard DC power jack, streamlining the power supply process to a single source.

The X1011 is an ideal storage solution for creating a home media center or building a network-attached storage (NAS) system. It allows you to store and stream your own videos, music, and digital photos within your home or even remotely across the world.

After the release of the Raspberry Pi AI Kit, we tested four PIPs: X1001, X1004, X1011, and M901. X1001, X1004, X1005 and M901 etc. all support the hailo-8 ai ​​accelerator, but X1011 does not.

It should be noted that X1004 and X1005 uses ASMedia ASM1182e PCIe switch, it can't support PCIe Gen 3 speed, so even though we forced to enable PCIe Gen 3.0 setting in Raspberry Pi 5, it is limited by ASMedia ASM1182e PCIe switch, and speed is still PCIe Gen 2.0 5Gbps speed. when you use an hailo-8 ai accelerator, Raspberry Pi Fundation highly recommends using PCIe 3.0 to achieve best performance with your AI Kit.

Our tentative conclusions are as follows:

  • If you need to use hailo-8 ai accelerator with high performance, it is recommended to use X1015/X1002/X1003/M901/ the official M.2 HAT+ etc. When choosing these PIP boards, you should focus on whether there is a conflict between the camera cable and the PIP board installation, and enable PCIe3.0 to use hailo-8 ai accelerator. At the same time, you need to prepare an SD card as the system disk.
  • If you don't care about the high performance brought by PCIe 3.0, then you can consider using X1004, so that you can use any socket of X1004 to install NVME SSD as the system disk, and another socket to install hailo-8 ai accelerator, so as to have both.

Geekworm X1011 PCIe to Four M.2

It took almost 15 days to ship the device. When I wanted to cancel the shipment, they said, I needed to courier it back to China since it had already been dispatched. Now it would cost me almost 30$-60$; Total costed 185$ including raspberry pi 5 and all the components

Sorry, we really can't intercept a package once it's shipped.

Does what it says on the tin

Simple to set up and does elegantly what it's advertised to do. Can't ask for more than that-
