HighPoint RocketU 1144CM Mac Pro USB 3.0 solution ships
<a href="" rel='nofollow'>HighPoint Technologies</a> is now shipping the industry's first USB 3.0 Storage Host Bus Adapter (HBA) available for Mac OS X 10.68 through 10.8.x -- the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>RocketU 1144CM</a>. This third-generation, PCIe 2.0 x4 RAID HBA delivers 5Gb per second per-port performance and supports up to four external USB SSD's, hard drives or enclosures.<br />
<br />
Powered by HighPoint's third-generation USB HBA architecture, the RocketU 1144CM is tailored for performance-intensive applications including media editing and high-speed external backup. Unlike conventional USB 3.0 HBAs, each port has a dedicated USB 3.0 controller, allowing the device to deliver the fastest performance possible over USB 3.0 connectivity.<br />
<br />
The RocketU 1144CM is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS 10.6.8 through 10.8.x, and some varieties of Linux. The card retails for $150, and includes HighPoint's web-based management interface, allowing administrators to quickly create and manage a variety of storage configurations including RAID 0, 1, JBOD, and individual drives.
