Equip your Windows or Mac system with 2 x eSATA 6 Gb/s ports and 2 x USB 3.0 ports using the Tempo Duo PCIe eSATA 6 Gb/s + USB 3.0 PCI Express Card from Sonnet. This card installs into one of your system's PCIe slots and supports the PCI Express 2.0 x4 bus interface. Its 2 x eSATA 6 Gb/s ports support data transfers up to 500 MB/s, while remaining backwards compatible with SATA II 3 Gb/s and SATA 1.5 Gb/s. The eSATA ports also support more than two drives when a hardware RAID enclosure is connected, as well as booting from attached drives under Windows 8, 7, and Mac OS X. Additionally, the eSATA ports are compatible with ATAPI drives, port multipliers, and S.M.A.R.T. status data reporting.

The 2 x USB 3.0 ports support data transfers up to 350 MB/s per port, while remaining backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 standards. The USB 3.0 ports also support more than two drives when a hardware RAID enclosure is used and is also able to provide bus power to peripherals such as hard drives, SSDs, and Blu-ray/DVD/CD optical drives up to 2A per port. Additionally, it supports USB battery charging up to 7.5W per port and supports a total of 31 devices, as well as hot-pluggable and hot swappable device connections. Aside from the two external USB 3.0 ports, there is also an internal USB 3.0 Dual Port connector.

For users who have no PCI Express slots within their system, such as those using a 2013 Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro, among others, this card may still be used with those systems, so long as it is used in conjunction with a Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion system. When used in this fashion with Windows systems, a Thunderbolt 2 port is required, while Mac systems can use a Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 port to connect to a card expansion system.

The Tempo Duo PCIe eSATA 6 Gb/s + USB 3.0 PCI Express Card is compatible with systems running Windows 8, 7, Vista, Server 2012, 2008 R2, 2008, and Mac OS X 10.8.5+. It is also OS X Yosemite compatible.
