PCIe RAID card

Subject: Storage | March 22, 2007 - 06:18 PM |

Now that most motherboards come with built in RAID capabilities, the once ubiquitous RAID controller card seems to have died out. However with the advent of PCIe, many motherboards have slower PCIe slots being used for nothing.  TECHGAGE has posted a review of the HighPoint RocketRAID 2310, with 4 SATA ports that plugs into a PCIe 4x slot.  Supporting RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and JBOD this card gives you some flexibility, so check it out if you need to build a RAID on a motherboard that doesn't offer native support.

"Once synonymous with servers, RAID has made its way into the mainstream thanks to the inclusion of onboard controllers by

the motherboard manufacturers. Can a dedicated card make much of a difference to system performance? Along with High Point,

we intend to find out."
