We bring four of the fastest SSDs together in a powerful workstation with the HighPoint SSD7120 acting as the glue that links it all together.
The Highpoint RocketU 1144C features four dedicated 5 Gb/s controllers, a PCI-E 2.0 x4 host interface and support for UAS.
The HighPoint Rocket EJ340 is advertised as ideal for applications that demand cost-effective, high-capacity 6 Gb/s storage configurations.
We got our hands on four SAS 6 Gb/s RAID controllers from Adaptec, Areca, HighPoint, and LSI and ran them through RAID 0, 5, 6, and 10 workloads to test their mettle. Does your system need eight more ports of connectivity? We can answer that!
Intel plans to offer its SSD caching functionality on the upcoming desktop Z68 platform, and only that platform. HighPoint’s RocketHybrid solution claims to achieve the same functionality, and it’s available as a PCI Express add-in card for only $59.
