The Highpoint RocketU 1144A USB 3.0 Card comes with four USB 3.0 ports and transfer bandwidth is 5Gb/s per port, it's PCI-E 2.0, supports up to 4 external USB enclosures, HDD/SSD, backwards compatible USB 2.0/1.1, Hot-Swap/Hot-Plug, xHCI Compliant and supports Windows and Linux OSs.
I have a yellow mark beside Base System Device in Device Manager. I downloaded the PLE driver to correct this, but it still does not work. This card is vaporware and does not work. Support says that we need to wait for a new firmware version to correct the problem. It is GOING BACK!!!
I am still curious as to seeing this thing work with the Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle USB 3.0, as only Renesas Chipsets only worked with it as far as I know.
Based on my experience, this card has problems
1. If you reboot your system, the attached hard drive will not be detected/recognized any more. You will need to unplug and replug
2. This card does not support USB 2.0 hard drives
3. You will see a yellow mark beside Base System Device in Device Manager. You will need to download PLE driver to correct this, even though this does not affect the function
Anyone try this card with something like the Black Magic Intensity Shuttle?
It doesnt look like this would fit in the little 1x PCI-e slots.
Why doesnt this need power plugged into it? All the other cards like this that I have seen require a molex power cable to be plugged into them.
A green PCB! ugh
For people that do not have USB 3.0 a internal header would be a nice addition.
Would you like it better if the PCB was black, red or blue?
Black yes. But i would still rate it great though, cause at that price you could upgrade your motherboard.
Its a € 100,17(average) here thats just insane imo
True, but upgrading the motherboard can be very involved and some people/companies couldn't be bothered. This is an easy install and your off to the races...
