HighPoint RocketUSB 3.0 HBA's break performance bottleneck of conventional USB HBA's

HighPoint's RocketU 1144A employs the latest USB 3.0 technology to deliver an unbeatable 20Gb/s transfer bandwidth for under US $100. This optimal balance of cost and performance makes it an ideal external storage solution for high-performance PC's.
