    HighPoint Technologies launches the Industry's fastest USB 3.0 RAID HBAs available for Mac OS X 10.8x Mountain Lion – the RocketU 1144CM. This third generation, PCIe 2.0 RAID HBA delivers 5 Gb/s per-port performance and supports up to 4 external USB SSD's, hard drives or Enclosures. HighPoint's innovative 4-Port HBA architecture delivers revolutionary USB 3.0 performance. Unlike conventional USB 3.0 HBA's, each port has a dedicated USB 3.0 SuperSpeed controller, and delivers the fastest SATA performance possible over USB connectivity.

    The four independent 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A connectors can be used simultaneously, and deliver an unprecedented transfer bandwidth of 20 Gb/s; ideal for multi-drive configurations of high-performance SATA 6 Gb/s SSDs and hard drives. The RocketU 1144CM is powered by HighPoint's industry proven hardware assisted RAID technology, and was designed specifically for Mac Pro workstations and high-performance applications. RocketU 1144CM HBAs are fully compatible with OSX 10.6x and later, including the most up to date builds of Mountain Lion 10.8x.


    Each RocketU 1144CM includes HighPoint's intuitive Web-based management interface, which allows administrators to quickly create and manage a variety of storage configurations including RAID levels 0, 1, JBOD, and individual drives.

    Complete Host to Device USB 3.0 Storage Solutions

    The RocketU 1144CM is the perfect companion for the RocketStor 5122B, the Industry's fastest dual-bay USB 3.0 storage dock. Both devices capitalize on HighPoint's unique USB 3.0 architecture to ensure 5 Gb/s transfer bandwidth for each SATA device. Each RocketU 1144C can support up to two RocketStor 5122B storage docks - ideal for configurations calling for two or more 6 Gb/s SATA SSD's and high-capacity 4TB hard disk drives.

    I suppose when apple won't migrate to USB 3, you need things like this.
