Fully compliant with Industry Standard PCIe 3.0 Slots; no-Bifurcation dependency
Integrated, Intelligent, Next-Gen PCIe 4.0 Switch controller chipset
Native, in-box NVMe driver support for all major OS platforms
Versatile Cabling Solutions
Gen4 Hyper Cooling Solution
The Rocket 1580 HBA is natively supported by all major operating systems. You won't need to juggle a series of device drivers, install a complex software suite, or master a specialized management interface. Your NVMe SSDs will be automatically recognized, and can be prepped and mounted using the operating system’s standard tool set.
No Bifurcation Required
Works with any Industry Standard PCIe 3.0/4.0 Slot!
HighPoint NVMe HBAs are compatible with a wide range of hardware platforms. The PCIe Gen4 host interface is fully compliant with industry standard PCIe4.0 slots, backwards-compatible with PCIe 3.0 slots, does not require a host platform with Bifurcation support, and is not restricted to a specific brand or model of motherboard.
Cutting-Edge Gen4 High-Speed Intelligent Switch Chipset
HighPoint Rocket 1500 Series NVMe HBA's have incorporated Broadcom's Next-Gen PCIe 4.0 switch chipset, which ensures maximum transfer bandwidth is available for each device port, at all times. Up to x4 dedicated lanes can be allocated to each M.2 NVMe SSD.
R1500 Series HBA's are capable of delivering a full x16 lanes of PCIe 4.0 transfer bandwidth for up to 8x Gen4 U.2/U.3 NVMe SSDs.
Supports any Off-the-Shelf U.2/U.3 NVMe SSD
Any Capacity, Any Generation & Any Form-Factor...
The Rocket 1580 is capable of supporting any industry standard U.2/U.3 NVMe SSD
Form Factor: 2.5” U.2/U.3
Gen4 Hyper Cooling System
Ultra-Efficient, low-Noise Cooling Solution designed specifically for Gen4 NVMe SSD's
Maximizing Gen4 NVMe storage performance without the proper implementation of modern cooling apparatus is a risky proposition. PCIe 4.0 devices and NVMe SSDs generate considerable heat under heavy load. To combat the threat of overheating, R1500 Series HBAs are equipped with our innovative Gen4 NVMe Hyper-Cooling System.
"Hyper-Cooling" refers to this unique design's ability to rapidly transfer waste heat away from critical NVMe and controller componentry to ensure your NVMe SSD’s consistently operate within their recommended temperature thresholds, even under sustained heavy I/O.
Each full length anodized aluminum heat sink is equipped with ultra-durable near-silent fans, and a high-conductivity thermal pad.
Versatile Cabling Options
The Rocket 1580 works with a variety of industry standard connectors – not just SFF-8639, which is employed directly by U.2 media. We offer a selection of PCIe Gen4 capable cabling accessories capable of supporting a wide range of storage configurations, including SFF-8643 connections and SFF08611 Oculink backplanes. This allows the Rocket 1580 to support any industry standard U.2 or M.2 NVMe SSD.
