Sonnet Tempo SATA E4i - Storage controller - SATA Product Details
Do your storage needs outweigh what your new dual-core Power Mac® G5 can support? Stuff it—with drives, that is! Sonnet’s Tempo SATA E4i 4-port Serial ATA Host Controller for PCI Express enables you to connect up to 4 additional internal drives for the perfect balance of flexible expandability and superior performance. This card is an ideal companion to our G5 Jive internal drive mount system for Power Mac G5 computers—along with your SATA drives, this combination is the most cost effective way for adding up to 2 Terabytes of high-performance capacity to your G5.
Do you need more speed? Tempo SATA E4i offers 3Gb/s per port data transfer support and gives you performance to burn! You’ll get great performance from individual drives, but grouping up to four Serial ATA hard drives in a RAID 0 (striped) array will provide astonishing sustained read/write performance numbers enough to capture and process High Definition video! Want more security? Set up your drives in a RAID 0 (mirrored) or RAID 10 (striped/mirrored) array for up to 1 Terabyte of data redundancy. When you need more flexibility and performance than offered by standard solutions, get a Tempo SATA E4i—it’ll give you room to grow and blazing performance for the most demanding applications.
Sonnet's Simply Fast design philosophy makes this installation a snap; you'll complete the process in a few easy steps. With no software to install, just insert the Tempo SATA E4i into an available PCI Express slot, connect and format your drives, and get to work!
