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.
highpoint do have a way of calling everything hba's .....

check out lsi's website .....



http://www.lsi.com/storage_home/prod...ers/index.html their hba



raid products http://www.lsi.com/storage_home/prod...aid/index.html


see the difference ... one company calls everything hba's .. and the other makes a clear difference between the two ...

When the hell are they releasing 3.0 anyway? They've pushed it back 3 times already and Ivy Bridge is only supposed to have 2.0.

Q: What timeframe are PCIe 3.0 products expected in the marketplace?
A: The PCI-SIG does not comment on member products. However, based on architecture updates and PCI-SIG enabling activities, it is estimated that PCIe 3.0 products may emerge two to three quarters following the completion of the specifications.

In times gone by, HighPoint used "Rocket" for their non-RAID HBAs and "RocketRAID" for their RAID HBAs. I suspect that the "RocketRAID" brand is so popular that even though this new product is a non-RAID HBA, they've released it under the "RocketRAID" brand for sales & marketing reasons.

@newpc:

An "exact estimation"? It that not a contradiction in terms?
