SON-TSATA6USB3-E - Sonnet Tempo Duo 2-port 6Gb/s eSATA plus 2-port USB 3.0 PCIe card

Sonnet Tempo Duo PCIe Card
Sonnet Tempo Duo PCIe Card
Product Overview
Two Cards in One—Add Fast 6Gb/s eSATA and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Ports to Your Computer With One PCIe Card
Do you need to hook up USB 3.0 or eSATA drives to your Mac Pro® tower, Windows® PC, or Thunderbolt™-to-PCIe card expansion system? If you are looking for great performance and flexible choice of connections, install the Tempo™ Duo PCIe adapter. This cost-effective Sonnet card delivers the capabilities of two cards in one, adding two 6Gb/s eSATA and two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports to your computer.

The Power to Charge and Sync
Sonnet specially engineered the Tempo Duo PCIe to provide extra power to devices connected to the USB 3.0 ports without the need for you to connect an auxiliary power adapter and cable to the card. Delivering up to 2.0A of power per port, this Sonnet solution provides enough power to support USB 3.0 bus-powered hard drives, SSDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray™ devices. The Tempo Duo also supports the USB 3.0 charging specification that enables you to simultaneously charge and sync your iPad®, iPhone®, or other device that supports USB 3.0 charging.

eSATA for Extra Speed
Capable of transferring files at up to 500 MB/s, the Tempo Duo PCIe adapter’s fast 6Gb/s eSATA ports are well suited to handle the increased bandwidth requirements of 6Gb/s SSDs. This card also supports older multi-drive enclosures with port multipliers, enabling you to access up to five drives per eSATA cable. The eSATA ports are also perfect for connecting media readers with eSATA interfaces, such as the RED STATION REDMAG 1.8" and 2.5", and even support booting from attached drives under OS X®, Windows 8 and 7. This card supports Sonnet’s exclusive eSATA data cables with locking connectors.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for Performance and Common Connectivity
Most drives offered today include USB 3.0 interfaces. Although they can connect to USB 2.0 ports on your computer, their performance would be reduced by as much as 85 percent! The Tempo Duo PCIe card’s dual SuperSpeed USB ports offer native USB 3.0 support, and are capable of transferring files at up to 350 MB/s(1). This Tempo card supports USB 3.0 hubs and other USB 3.0 devices, and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

Supports Secure Connections with Sonnet’s Exclusive eSATA Data Cables with Locking Connectors

Optimized for Maximum Performance Over Thunderbolt
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe slot? This card is ideal for use in one of Sonnet’s Echo Express™ or xMac™ Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe Card Expansion System. The combo enables you to add two fast eSATA ports and two more SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports with one adapter card to iMac®, Mac® mini, new Mac Pro, MacBook Air®, MacBook Pro®, and Windows computers with Thunderbolt ports.
