HighPoint RocketStor 6661A-4USB overview

  • 1Description

Add Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe x16, x8, and x4 cards to your system, including audio, video capture, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, storage/RAID controllers cards, and PCIe SSDs using the RocketStor 6661A Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe 3.0 x16 Expansion Chassis from HighPoint. Its lightweight, small-footprint design is well-suited for compact workstations and mobile computing platforms such as iMacs, MacBook Pros, and more. At 7" tall and less than 3" wide, the RocketStor 6661A is small enough to pack into a laptop bag but can also support full-sized PCIe 3.0 add-in cards in its open-ended PCIe 3.0 x4 slot.

Aside from its PCIe slot, the RocketStor 6661A is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which provide bi-directional speeds of 40 Gb/s. While one port is used to interface with your host system, the other can be used to daisy-chain up to six devices together, including dual 4K displays or a single 5K display, thanks to support for DisplayPort 1.2. Thunderbolt 3 also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C and provides 15W of power to compatible devices for charging.

HighPoint's RocketStor 6661A Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe 3.0 x16 Expansion Chassis is compatible with Thunderbolt 2 devices, as well as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (USB 3.1). Please be aware that any daisy-chain connections will terminate if a peripheral or device is connected via USB Type-C. Included is a Thunderbolt 3 cable, a 60W external power supply, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year warranty.

General Features

Compact & Portable Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Expansion Chassis
Transform your notebook into a compact media workstation. The RocketStor 6661A allows you to quickly add most PCIe x4, x8 or x16 cards to your Thunderbolt 3 computing platform, such as media capture, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, or external storage/RAID controller cards. Like its processor, the lightweight, small-footprint design is suited for compact workstations and mobile computing platforms such as iMacs, MacBook Pros, and Razor notebooks. At just 7" tall and less than 3" wide, the RocketStor 6661A is small enough to pack into a laptop bag yet is capable of supporting full-sized PCIe 3.0 add-in cards.
Efficient Chassis Design Keeps Temperatures Cool During Heavy Workloads
PCIe devices, such as networking, video, and hardware RAID cards can generate a great deal of waste heat during heavy I/O. Thus, an efficient and reliable cooling system is an essential component of any PCIe expansion solution. The RocketStor 6661A was designed to accommodate performance-intensive applications. The ventilated, all-aluminum chassis and dual cooling fans help keep temperatures cool during high-stress workloads.
User-Friendly Plug-and-Play Installation
The RocketStor 6661A can be added to most Thunderbolt 3 Windows and Mac platforms via a single cable connection. Quick release thumbscrews and a slidable chassis cover make adding or removing PCIe cards simple.
Compatible PCIe Cards
Compatible PCIe cards include the RocketStor 6661A-NVMe (Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe RAID), RocketStor 6661A-4USB (Thunderbolt 3 to 4 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A), RocketStor 6661A-2USB (Thunderbolt 3 to 1 x 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A & 10 Gb/s 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C), RocketStor 6661A-2U2e (Thunderbolt 3 to 2 x 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A & 2 x 6 Gb/s eSATA), RocketStor 6661A-mSAS2 (Thunderbolt 3 to 2 x mini-SAS [8 x SAS/SATA channels]), RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 (Thunderbolt 3 to 1 x mini-SAS [4 x SAS/SATA channels]), and RocketStor 6661A-eSATA (Thunderbolt 3 to 4 x 6 Gb/s eSATA Ports).
