2-Port 6 Gb/s SATA solution for Mac & PC desktops with PCIe slots.
Why choose an eSATA Card? If you're planning to connect external storage to your computer, there's a good chance the enclosure will have two or more interfaces from which to choose, including USB, FireWire, and eSATA. Your computer has USB ports, may have FireWire ports, and maybe even a Thunderbolt™ port, too. So if you can just plug into your computer's existing ports, why consider an eSATA card? Consider the facts that the 6 Gb/s eSATA interface offers superior performance to that of FireWire 800 and all USB interfaces, and Thunderbolt storage systems carry a price premium over eSATA storage systems. Sonnet's Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb PCIe 2.0 card is cost-effective solution for adding two high-performance eSATA ports to your computer so you can take advantage of this speedy interface.
Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb PCIe 2.0 is versatile. Its fast, 6 Gb/s eSATA interface is well suited to deal with the increased bandwidth requirements of 6 Gb/s SSDs. Built around a second generation 6Gb chipset, it offers greatly improved performance over older 6 Gb/s eSATA cards and is capable of transferring files at up to 375 MB/s! This Sonnet controller also performs better in the latest computers, Sonnet's Echo™ Express Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards, and Sonnet's xMac™ mini Server 1U Rackmount PCIe Expansion System with Thunderbolt Ports.
