PCIe 3.0 x16 8-Port M.2 NVMe HBA
High-Performance 8-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 1108 is the industry's fastest PCIe Gen3 NVMe connectivity HBA. The eight independent device ports can support off-the-shelf 2242/2460/2280 M.2 SSDs of any capacity.
Built-in High-speed, Intelligent Switch Chipset
The Rocket 1108 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. Up to x4 lanes of host bandwidth are allocated to each M.2 NVMe SSD, as needed.
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.
Ultra-Efficient, Low-Noise Active Cooling Solution
Designed to mitigate the risk of thermal throttling, the Rocket 1108's advanced cooling system rapidly transfers waste heat away from critical NVMe and controller componentry to ensure M.2 SSDs consistently operate within their recommended temperature thresholds, even under sustained heavy I/O. The full length anodized aluminum heat sink is equipped with a pair of ultra-durable near-silent fans, and high-conductivity thermal pads.
