RocketRAID Macintosh Milestones

HighPoint was the first PC HBA manufacturer to enter the Mac market. In early 2005, we released OS X support for the RocketRAID 1820A 8-port PCI-X card for Mac G4 systems, followed mid-year by the first SATAII PCI-X adapter available for Macintosh G5 platforms, the RocketRAID 2220. We have since developed Mac support for every subsequent generation of product, right up to our current line of SATA 6G RAID controllers, and our Apple-only RocketRAID eSATA for Mac, which is available direct from the Apple Store.
