Thanks, Brian,

Thanks for contacting HighPoint.
We are still in the early stage for RR3830x series but below is our brief information on prototype we be showing at NAB next month.
What application you seeking to use NVMe Storage, as for now the ecosystem is not mature yet and NVMe U.2 SSD still very pricy.
  1. Support up to 3x PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs
  2. NVMe RAID 0, 1 and 5
  3. PCIe 3.0 x16 connectivity bandwidth
  4. Software package support Window platform
We are open to hear customer feedback on NVMe storage application, it will help to shape our NVMe RAID Adapter product line.

Thank you very much, May:
We have bought about 6 RocketRAID 2720SGL
But, it's time for RAID controllers to exploit
the raw bandwidth of x16 edge connectors
and PCIe 3.0 speeds.
The PCIe 4.0 clock will oscillate at 16 GHz.
The raw bandwidth of a full x16 edge connector
maps nicely into four U.2 ports @ x4 lanes each:
4 @ x4 = x16 = very elegant symmetry !
I believe HP, Dell and Kingston have a PCIe add-in card
that all use four M.2 SSDs and an x16 edge connector:

Kingston's version is described here:

Hello Paul,
As this is our new NVMe RAID controller product line so changes is unavoidable therefore internally we decided will share product information once it close mass production stage.
Thanks for follow up, and will certainly keep you update as soon as it close to MP stage.
