TRENDING NOW: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti should have 6GB GDDR5, release imminent

HighPoint RocketRAID 2760 Switch Architecture PCI-E x16 24-Port SAS/SATA 6Gb/s Controller - The HighPoint RocketRAID 2760

HighPoint has something special here; something capable of transferring a dual layer DVD's worth of data in just one second. We make the most of what this controller is capable of thanks to Crucial sending over 24 RealSSD C300 drives.

The HighPoint RocketRAID 2760

Here we get our first look at the 2760 fully assembled. There are six SFF-8087 ports for connecting the controller directly to drives or to backplanes inside your server.

The back of the card is relatively uneventful other than a few surface mount components.

As you might imagine, all of those controller chips create some significant heat. You will need a powerful cooling system to keep the 2760 happy. Why HPT went with a passive cooling system is beyond me, since the price will entice power users to give the 2760 a go and most systems outside of the server realm are not up to the task of keeping a true enterprise class controller like this one cool.

A big thank you goes to Crucial for supplying the 24 RealSSD C300 drives needed to make this test possible.
