Professional 6Gb/s SATA Solution

Why choose an eSATA card? External storage and professional SSD readers often have two or more interfaces from which to choose, including FireWire®, USB, 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? Performance and cost. Consider the facts that the 6 Gb/s eSATA interface offers superior throughput to that of all FireWire and USB interfaces, and Thunderbolt storage systems carry a price premium over eSATA storage systems. Sonnet's Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb 4-Port card is a cost-effective way to add four high-performance bootable eSATA ports to your computer so you can take advantage of this fast interface.


Improved Performance

Sonnet's Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb 4-Port's fast, 6 Gb/s eSATA interface easily handles the increased bandwidth requirements of 6 Gb/s SSDs. Built around a second generation 6Gb SATA chipset, it offers greatly improved performance over older 6 Gb eSATA cards and is capable of transferring files from a single SSD at up to 500 MB/s. Even greater performance (up to 1,300 MB/s!) is possible when you connect four SSDs and format them as a RAID 0 set. Increased onboard cache enables this Sonnet controller to perform even better in the latest computers as well as in Sonnet's Echo™ Express Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards or xMac mini Server.


Wide Support

Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe slot? This card is ideal for use in one of Sonnet's Echo Express Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards—the combo enables you to add 4-eSATA ports of connectivity to iMac®, Mac® mini, MacBook® Air, and MacBook Pro computers.
