I'm using a RocketRAID 2220, which is an eight-channel 133MHz PCI-X
card. I'm not exactly sure what kind it is, but I know the 2000-series
isn't their top-of-the-line. That's the 3000-series. However, there's
also a 1000-series which is quite a bit cheaper, which I would fully
expect to be a regular Marvell-based card.
If I were going to spend the extra money for a 3000-series card, I would
have just spent even a few bucks more for the 3ware.
