Features    [ Edit | History ]

The HighPoint RocketRAID 2320 PCI Express to SATA II RAID Controller is the next generation for high performance computing solutions utilizing the latest interconnect technology PCI-Express.

The RocketRAID 2320 is set to give much faster and improved I/O and supports features that are critical for high performance

+ Cheapest semi-hardware RAID card.
+ Firmware update supports RAID 0,1,5,10, JBOD.
+ Helpful and smart support.
- Known to corrupt certain hard drives.
- Not full hardware RAID.
I wanted to setup a 2TB RAID5 array, but it would fail every time. After dealing extensively with Highpoint email support (no toll free phone support), they eventually gave me their DOS testing utility. It turned out my card's EEPROM was failing. After returning the card and getting an Areca ARC-1220, I found out that the RocketRaid had corrupted my Western Digital SE16 500GB (WD5000AAKS) when I enabled staggered spin up. Why the EEPROM failed, I don't know, but it definitely wasted a couple weeks of my time.

Has 8 ports to connect drives
PCI-e bus
Not all that fast
Not truly hardware raid
I bought this card so that I could connect up 8 250 GB hard drives in a RAID50 configuration. It works well for doing this. Linux drivers are fairly flaky (hard to install with Ubuntu), but I got Windows Vista installed on it nicely. Vista gives the hard drive a performance score of 5.9, so it's decent. Average read speed using HDTach is about 90 MB/sec.

8 ports, PCIe-x4, bios & windows RAID management, RAID 0,1,5,10,50
not true hardware raid 5, price
I bought this for my home computer intending to build an 8x 250GB raid 5 array using my Asus A8n-SLI premium's PCI-E4 slot. It works and performance seems pretty good, however, this is most certainly not a true hardware solution. On full speed transfers (either read or write), the cpu usage can go as high as 50% (average 30% throughout) on an Athlon 64 3000+. Idling cpu usage is a constant 5%. I recommend dual core cpu for a RAID 5 config. You can consider this midway between full hardware raid 5 and software raid 5 in that it is fully bios manageable (so no OS dependency on the RAID management), but still using CPU cycles to do the hard work. In this sense, it is comparable to some onboard solutions such as NVRaid, Sil3114R, etc.. but with 8 ports instead of 4 and some more features such as online raid level migration, online capacity expansion, staggered spinup, etc. On non-full speed accesses, such as network streaming of video files, cpu usage does not go above the 5% idle level by a noticeable amount - so it can still work as a media server storage solution rather efficiently. Very nice cable supplied (8 cables about 3 feet in length with tight fitting connectors, they don't fall out easily). Not sure if its worth the 300 bucks since its not real hardware RAID 5.

Comment: Tomshardware compares the 2320 from Highpoint to several other PCI-X Raid adapters, including the 2320's twin PCI-X brother, the Hihgpoint 2220. A slight performance edge is handed to the PCI-e with respect to its PCI-X cousin.
