The Newer Technology MAXPower 6G PCIe eSATA 2-Port RAID Controller Card is an ideal choice for efficient, high-speed, low-cost, RAID capable connectivity for your Mac or PC. The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card features port multiplier support. With this controller card you can add two eSATA ports of data transfer rates up to 500Mb/s. It supports RAID levels 0 / 1 / 5 / 10 or non-RAID independent / span JBOD for up to 10 drives.
- Port Multiplier Support
- The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card, in addition to supporting any single or dual eSATA enclosure also supports port multiplier enclosures to connect up to 5 drives into a single eSATA port. By supporting port multiplier enclosures, the RAID controller card can provide massive storage and increased data protection by connecting enough drives for protective RAID arrays such as RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10.
- Adds Faster Than Factory Interface to Mac Pros
- The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card, by connecting an eSATA interface equipped device, offers faster backups, file transfers to high-end audio/video editing, thus, taking the data transfer performance to an entirely new level. Optimally compatible with Mac Pro models and PCs with an available PCIe 2.0 slot, the Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card works with any eSATA interfaced equipped external hard drive or optical drive to deliver significantly faster data transfer rates over the fastest factory equipped Mac Pro interface of FireWire 800.
- Future Ready Yet Fully Backward Compatible
- With the installation of this card you get immediate speed. This also makes a Mac Pro or PC ready for greater speeds in future. The Newer Technology PCIe RAID controller card is fully backward compatible with PCIe 1.0 slots as well as previous generations of SATA 1.5Gb/s and 3Gb/s drives.
