Highpoint RocketRAID 404 Controller Review @ X-bit Labs

| Posted: Oct 10, 2002 8:20 am

X-bit Labs have posted an interesting review of Highpoint's new RocketRAID 404 controller card which is based on the 374 controller chip. All on the small and simple card, it can host up to 8 hard disk drives in RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 0+1 unlike other pervious controller cards supporting this many drives.


Well, it is pretty interesting that unlike Promise Company (which launched their FastTRAK100 TX4 a bit earlier), HighPoint engineers didn't deprive their 4-channel monster of the ability to work with two HDDs connected to a single cable. As a result, the four-channel RocketRAID 404 controller turned our capable of working with 8 hard disk drives at a time. But, please, do not hurry to celebrate this event. Remembering the problems with "single-cable" configurations, HighPoint engineers allowed their offspring to work with 8 HDDs only in RAID0 array, with no RAID01 support for 6- and 8-drive systems.
