HighPoint RocketRAID 2310 PCI-E x4 SATA RAID Controller

 

Introduction

 

HighPoint has been around for many years and if you have been tinkering around with PCs for more than a few years you are already familiar with the company. HighPoint was one of the very first RAID controllers I ever played around with. At that time the company was winning contracts to put their chipsets onboard motherboards for Abit, ASUS and many others. Who could forget the first time they put four 20GB PATA drives in RAID 0 on an Abit board, ribbons flowing all over the place inside of the case? Those were the days!

 

Fast forward to 2009 and chipset makers have moved RAID onto the Southbridge and PATA has moved to an afterthought since SATA now dominates the market. HighPoint is still making dedicated RAID controllers for the entry level market and has even moved into the high performance category.

 

Today we are looking at the HighPoint RocketRAID 2310, an entry level RAID controller that runs on the PCI Express bus and supports four drives in RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 or a single drive (JBOD). Let's take a look at the feature set and cards specifications.
