Description: StarTech.com 2 Port PCIe / PCI Express SATA III 6Gbps eSATA Controller Card - Storage controller - 2 Channel - SATA 6Gb/s / eSATA 6Gb/s low profile - 600 MBps - PCIe x1
Mfr Part #: PEXESAT322I
Add 2 external or internal SATA 6 Gbps ports to a computer, through a PCI Express slot. The PEXESAT322I PCI Express SATA III Controller Card (6 Gbps) gives you the option to add 2 internal or external SATA ports to your computer, through a single PCI Express (x1) card slot. The card features on board jumper selection, which enables you to configure the card to provide 2 internal or external SATA III ports, or one of each, as needed.
The SATA III card features Port Multiplier (PM) support on each port, which allows multiple drives to be connected over a single cable when necessary to maximize the number of SATA device connections while reducing the amount of cabling required.
The card is fully compliant with the SATA revision 3.0 specification (up to 6 Gbps of data bandwidth), enabling you to utilize the speeds of high performance hard drives and Solid State Drives (SSD), as well as SATA-based optical drives (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, Blu-Ray).
- Includes both a full and low profile/half-height bracket for installation into any size of desktop computer
- This PCIe SATA controller card has two SATA channels that can be independently switched between the internal or external (eSATA) ports as needed
- This versatile add-in card offers SATA III connectivity (6Gbps), while remaining backward compatible with SATA I (1.5Gbps) and II (3Gbps) device connections, which helps eliminate the expense of having to upgrade drives
