HighPoint Offers the Industry's Widest Selection of NVMe RAID AIcs and Connectivity HBAs
HighPoint NVMe product portfolio is truly second to none. In addition to the industry’s fastest, and most diverse selection of RAID AICs and enclosures, we manufacture a complete range of 2, 4 and 8 channel NVMe storage and connectivity HBAs for PCIe Gen3 and Gen4 platforms.
HighPoint Rocket Series NVMe HBAs address the needs of solutions providers and system integrators that cater to vertical marketplaces for high-speed industrial, corporate, and media applications. They were designed professional applications that demand uncompromised storage performance, scalability and adaptability, in a compact, easy to integrate package that is universally compatible with industry standard x86-64 (Intel/AMD), Mac and ARM platforms.
Rocket series NVMe HBAs are available with up to 8 dedicated M.2 or U.2/U.3 device ports, and are capable of fully saturating x16 lanes of PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 host bandwidth.
Performance-Focused NVMe Hardware Architecture
HighPoint NVMe RAID AICs and connectivity HBAs benefit from decades of engineering and design expertise, and are capable of saturating x16 lanes of PCIe Gen4 or Gen3 host bandwidth. The highly flexible, performance-focused hardware architecture is unique to our NVMe solutions. Unlike the vast majority of competing solutions, HighPoint RAID AICs and HBAs fully leverage the capabilities of PCIe Switch Chipsets; Broadcom’s PEX PEX88048 (PCIe Gen4) and PEX8747 (PCIe Gen3) ICs. This innovative design ensures bandwidth doesn’t go to waste; up to x4 lanes can be allocated to each device port, as needed.
For example, the 8-port Rocket 1508 PCIe Gen4 x16 AIC will assign x2 lanes to each port when hosting a full complement of SSDs. However, if only 4 SSDs are attached, x4 lanes will be available for each port. The Rocket 1508's ability to react “on-the-fly” is a major advantage over conventional NVMe adapter or controller, which will simply distribute bandwidth equally amongst each port (even if said port is not occupied), or defer to the motherboard for lane distribution (bifurcation requirement).
HighPoint Rocket 1500 & Rocket 1000 Series M.2 or U.2/U.3 ports are capable of supporting any industry standard off-the-shelf M.2 or U.2/U.3 NVMe SSD.
NAND Form Factor: Single & Double-Sided
M.2 Form Factor: 2280, 2260, 2242, 22110 U.2/U.3 Form Factor: 2.5" U.2/U.3
Native, In-Box NVMe Device Driver Support
HighPoint NVMe HBAs were designed with simplicity in mind. All you need is a little patience and a screwdriver; just install the SSDs and plug in the card!
Rocket 1500 & Rocket 1000 Series HBAs are natively supported by all major operating systems, including Windows 11, Windows Server 2022, macOS 12.x Monterey, and current distributions of Linux. 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.
