Ask our Experts!

The HighPoint RocketRAID 2680SGL 8 Channel PCI-Express x4 SAS RAID Controller has an SAS 3GB/s Interface Protocol and a PCI Express 2.0 x4 Host Connection with a 3GB/s per-port data transfer rate. It is ideal for such applications as capturing uncompressed video, CDP, gaming, workstations and advanced desktop applications.

Unprecedented Cost-Effective Storage (SAS and SATA)
The RocketRAID 2680SGL SAS RAID Series offers the flexibility to support either 15,000 RPM SAS hard drives for performance or lower cost SATA hard drives for capacity. The ability to deploy either type of drives allows the computer system to be optimized for specific application and cost requirements. Disks with SAS interfaces are designed to meet the performance and reliability characteristics required for RAID systems. SAS drives retain all of the reliability and performance advantages of traditional SCSI and while eliminating the weaknesses of the parallel interface.
