NewerTech NWTMXPCIE2E2U3 overview

  • 1Description

Designed specifically for systems running Apple's current OS, the MAXPower 2 x 2 USB/eSATA PCIe 2.0 Host Adapter from NewerTech utilizes your computer's built-in xHCI drivers and serves as a companion card for systems running Mac OS X 10.8.3 and later. With both high-speed USB 3.0 and 6 Gb/s eSATA connectivity on a single PCIe 2.0 4x card, the MAXPower USB/eSATA host adapter is suitable for demanding applications like video editing, audio mixing, and photography.

The card is fully compatible with SATA I (1.5G), SATA II (3G), and USB 2.0 and supports legacy devices, hubs, and external optical drives. Since each USB and eSATA port commands a dedicated PCIe lane, a card-level throughput of up to 2,000 MB/s can be achieved, with speeds up to 500 MB/s per port. Each of the two USB 3.0 ports can utilize the UAS (USB Attached SCSI) protocol to transfer data to and from USB storage devices such as hard drives, solid-state drives (SSDs), and thumb/flash drives.

Simple to integrate and operate, it supports hot-plugging, eliminating the need to restart your computer when connecting or disconnecting a USB or SATA device. Dedicated per-port performance architecture allows each device to run flat out, without interference from other attached devices. For applications in servers or other specialized computers where space is limited, the MAXPower 2 x 2USB/eSATA host adapter card features a removable bracket design to fit into low-profile machines.
