Hell, even if they were releasing it at PCIe 3.0 speeds, it would still only be 16GB/s of bandwidth. Although I'm no expert on the subject so I could be missing something.
its just one of those theoratical speeds. 6Gbs x 32 = 19200

Leading me to believe that although the top model the article is based on (RR2782) hasn't yet been posted on HighPoints site, it will have full RAID capabilities as well.

this isnt a raid card ... its an hba ...

Erm. Try $10,000+. $8,000 at MINIMUM.

You might want to look up the term "HBA" or Host Bus Adaptor. It has no bearing on whether it supports RAID or not. Only that its an adaptor that connects a computer to a network or storage device. All RAID cards are HBA's.

It is just an adapter, so only software RAID can be used. You are limited to 64 Gbit/s by PCI-E v2 so you can't even run all the ports at SATA 3.0Gbit/s. Though I doubt that it can get anywhere close to that. No reason to even use these for SSD's as you only need 12~13 SSD's to max out a x16 lane and there are no RAID processers that can get anywhere near that much thoughput, let alone the x8 slots that they use. You are better off with a few 4 drive RAID cards and softraid those drives.

I'd stick with my original guess as all of the other models in the line are listed at well under $1k. Considering the RR2744 (16-port external) only cost $499.00 and the RR2760 (24-port internal) cost $699.00. And those are company quotes, street pricing should be better.

so you just summed up the correct deffinition of an hba and yet you dont see how your first point is wrong

HighPoints description of the family of HBAs specifically says "hardware RAID". As for PCIe 2.0, it supports 500MB/s per lane, 16 lanes, 8GB/s. SSDs scale amazingly well but you would still need at least 17-18 Vertex 3's to fully populate x16 lanes. Obviously a bit shy of 32, but I was finding the x16 interface the more impressive part as it is the first to market. Few companies are even using x8 cards.
