The RocketRAID 640 4-Port SATA 6Gb/s PCI-E 2.0 x4 RAID HBA from HighPoint offers 4 independent SATA 6Gb/s ports for internal storage connectivity. It is also backward compatible with PCI-Express 1.0 for legacy systems. The hardware assisted RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and JBOD offers a balance of storage performance and protection. Software support includes complete OS drivers and a user friendly RAID management and monitoring tool for popular operating systems such as Windows, Linux and FreeBSD.

SATA Compatibility
The RocketRAID enables the use of the industry's newest and fastest hard drives at 6Gb/s while providing backward compatibility to legacy 1.5 or 3Gb/s drives. It uses the same cable and connectors as previous SATA generations to ease integration.
Turbo Charging Your System with SATA 6Gb/s
The RocketRAID delivers up to 600Mb/s of throughput per SATA port boosting storage performance for legacy systems. Current systems can also maximize PCI-Express 2.0 x4 bandwidth to 2Gb/s of throughput. Being backward compatible to all generations of SATA hard drives (3.0, 2.0 and 1.5) ensures that systems can smoothly transition to SATA 6Gb and fully utilize their existing cables and connectors.
Performance Companion for Speedy Devices
The highest performing SATA and SSD hard drives have performance bottlenecks due to older generation host adapters and bus technologies. It offers dedicated bandwidth and point-to-point connectivity making it the performance companion for speedy devices such as SATA 6Gb/s and SSD hard drive. A PCI-Express 2.0 x4 bus also provides the bandwidth needed to break through the performance barrier.
Next Generation of SATA and eSATA Connectivity
The RocketRAID offers the next generation of SATA and eSATA 6Gb/s connectivity supporting port multiplier enclosures for a maximum of 20 SATA devices.
PCI-Express 2.0 x4 Max Performance Up to 2Gb/s
PCI-Express 2.0 doubles the bandwidth of existing PCI-Express bus for faster data throughput. Each PCI-Express lane provides up 500MB/s of throughput. It is also backward compatible with previous generation PCI-Express Gen 1.0
