Overview
  • 1Description

The 4 Port Tempo SATA Pro 6 Gb PCI Express 2.0 Card from Sonnet is a cost-effective solution for adding four high-performance 6 Gbps eSATA ports to your Mac Pro, desktop PC or Thunderbolt expansion chassis with PCIe 2.0 slots. Featuring dual SATA controllers and four ports, this card enables you to connect multiple systems for fast transfers between them. It also allows you to improve performance by creating RAID sets from two or more systems. Whether you connect single or multi-drive systems or a combination of both, Tempo SATA Pro Card supports them at maximum performance levels.

The Tempo SATA Card's 6 Gbps eSATA interface easily handles the increased bandwidth requirements of 6 Gbps SSDs. It is also capable of transferring files from a single SSD at up to 500 MBps. Even greater performance of up to 1,300 MBps is possible when four SSDs are connected as a RAID 0 set.

The combination of Tempo SATA Card and Sonnet's Echo Express Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis enables you to add 4 eSATA ports of connectivity to iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro computers.
