Final Thoughts


HighPoint's product line has continued to evolve ever since they started to bring us IDE controller cards, this back before Serial ATA was ever conceived and the PCI bus was simply all you could use.


Now PCI Express has taken hold as the interface of choice; its smaller footprint allows for cheaper cards while increasing the interface speed between the PC and the controller from a shared 133MB/s limitation of legacy PCI to a total of 500MB/s Bi-directional (250MB/s in each direction at the same time), this giving RAID controllers that can transfer data over the 133MB/s barrier stacks of extra headroom.


The RocketRAID 2300 is a perfect 4-port solution that not only has its own cache memory onboard to increase the data throughput and reduce latency times, but its price is just about right for this type of card. Thanks to PCI Express you're getting the full speed out of this baby too.
