PCIe 3.0 x16 4-Port M.2 NVMe HBA
High-Speed 4-Channel M.2NVMe Connectivity Solution for PCIe Gen3 Platforms
R1000 Series NVMe HBAs are fully independent, stand-alone NVMe storage solutions for PCIe Gen3 platforms; they are not tied to a specific motherboard, chipset or operating system, can be easily integrated into any motherboard or server/workstation platform with a free PCIe 3.0/4.0 x16 or x8 slot, and are capable of supporting off-the-shelf M.2 NVMe SSDs of any capacity.
The Rocket 1104 is a cost-effective, high-performance 4-channel M.2 NVMe connectivity solution for PCIe Gen3 platforms with a free PCIe x16 slot. The four independent device ports can support off-the-shelf 2242/2460/2280/22110 M.2 SSDs of any capacity.
Built-in High-speed, Intelligent Switch Chipset
The Rocket 1104 NVMe HBA'sperformance-focused hardware architecture leverages intelligent PCIe switch technology to ensure maximum transfer bandwidth is available for each device port, at all times. A dedicated x4 lanes of host bandwidth are allocated to each M.2 NVMe SSD.
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 M.2 SSD’s and plug in the card!
Rocket 1000 Series HBAs are natively supported by all major Windows and macOS operating system platforms, 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.
Fan-less Cooling for Media Sensitive Working Environments
Rocket 1104 HBAs feature a ventilated bracket and full-length black-anodized heat sink with high- conductivity thermal pad efficiently whisks waste heat away from hosted SSDs and critical controller componentry.
This robust, fan-less design allows for completely silent operation – ideal for applications that require low-noise work environments.
