Utilize Your PCIe 5.0 Port Efficiently

The HighPoint Rocket 1608A represents a drive switch card, meaning it lacks an extravagant RAID controller and software necessary for configuring drives in modes other than RAID 0 or RAID 1. This design choice helps maintain affordability, allowing users to invest in up to eight NVMe drives to populate it. While it delivers optimal results with PCIe 5.0 drives, it remains compatible with PCIe 4.0 counterparts as well. Once correctly configured, the Rocket 1608A boasts a theoretical bandwidth of 64GB/s, an impressive figure in its class.

Performance assessments have indicated that peak performance is achieved with five drives installed. Depending on the benchmark, the Rocket 1608A manages to either meet or approach its theoretical performance capabilities. In a practical scenario, during a 100GB data transfer test, a zip file containing over 62,000 files was transferred in a swift 1.33 seconds. It emerges as an impressive solution worthy of exploration.
