Designed specifically for systems running Apple's legacy OS, the MAXPower 2 x 2 USB/eSATA PCIe 2.0 Host Adapter from NewerTech comes with a custom built driver and serves as a companion card for systems running Mac OS X 10.6 - 10.8.2. 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. The eSATA ports also support port multiplication, allowing you to connect multiple eSATA devices through a single port.

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.
