PCIe Gen 4 x16 Bootable NVMe RAID Expansion Drive - 8TB of Storage Capacity - Up to 14GB/s of Transfer performance!

RocketAIC 7502H front


The RocketAIC 7502HW is HighPoint’s most compact, high-density PCIe Gen4 Expansion drive, and is capable of delivering a blistering 14,000MB/s of transfer throughput and up to 8TB of bootable, pre-configured storage. The Half-Height/Half-Length form factor is compliant with a wide range of PC riser cards, and can be easily integrated into industry leading Dell and HP servers and workstations.

Broadcom Inside!

RocketAIC NVMe expansion drives incorporate Broadcom PCIe switch chipsets, to optimize signal integrity, reduce latency, maximize transfer throughput and provide an abundance of electrical lanes. The highly flexible, performance-focused hardware architecture is unique to our NVMe solutions and ensures bandwidth is never wasted. The RocketAIC 7502HW allocates a dedicated x16 lanes of upstream bandwidth, and x4 lanes of downstream bandwidth to each device, and is capable of delivering 14GB/s of transfer throughput; the maximum possible from a single-slot PCIe Gen4 expansion drive!

Your Choice: Maximum Transfer Speed & Capacity, Maximum Data Security, or the Best of Worlds!

RocketAIC NVMe Drives are capable of supporting bootable and data-only storage configurations, and were designed to accommodate a wide-range of high-performance workflows, including AI learning and AV systems, content creation and post-production platforms, and high-speed data ingestion and media capture solutions.

RocketAIC drives are shipped pre-configured to maximize performance and capacity, but can be easily reconfigured using our quick and intuitive management suite.

Striping - This mode delivers Maximum Performance and capacity by linking multiple NVMe SSDs together to act as a single storage unit.

Mirroring - This mode creates a hidden duplicate of the target SSD, and is ideal for applications that require an extra layer of data security, including bootable volumes.

Security & Speed –This mode offers the best of both worlds. Two mirrored arrays are striped together to maximize performance with a layer of data redundancy.

Advanced NVMe Cooling Solution

The RocketAIC 7502HW is equipped with HighPoint’s advanced PCIe Gen4 NVMe cooling solution, which mitigates the risk of thermal throttling by ensuring each hosted SSDs consistently operates within their recommended temperature thresholds, even under sustained heavy I/O. The full-length anodized aluminum heat sink is equipped with an of ultra-durable, low-decibel cooling fan and high-conductivity thermal padding. This innovative, ultra- efficient cooling system rapidly transfers waste heat away from critical componentry and NVMe media, without introducing unwanted distraction into your working environment.

Quick & Intuitive Management Suite

Though RocketAIC series drives are designed to work right out of the box, customers are free to install HighPoint’s intuitive WebGUI management software, which includes our SHI solution, and provides simple and quick real-time temperature monitoring and endurance tracking. Quick, and easily mastered, the WebGUI works with all modern web browsers and can be used to manage, configure and monitor every aspect of your RocketAIC NVMe drive with a few simple clicks.
