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 NVMe SSDs of any capacity.

The Rocket 1180 is a versatile, high-performance NVMe connectivity HBA for PCIe 3.0 host platforms. The eight independent device ports can support U.2/U.3 or M.2 NVMe SSDs via a range of cabling solutions.

Performance-Focused NVMe Hardware Architecture

HighPoint NVMe 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 NVMe hardware architecture leverages intelligent PCIe switch technology to allocate up to x4 lanes to each device port, as needed.

Native, In-Box NVMe Device Driver Support

HighPoint NVMe HBA’s were designed with simplicity in mind. Just install the SSDs and plug in the card!

Rocket 1000 Series HBA’s are natively supported by all major Windows and macOS operating systems, 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.


Versatile Cabling Solutions

The Rocket 1180 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 cabling accessories capable of supporting a wide range of storage configurations, including SFF-8643 connections and SFF-8611 Oculink backplanes. This allows the Rocket 1180 to
