MAXPower eSATA 6G Pro
PCIe Controller Card

Mac / PC / eSATA
Maximum Transfer Speeds
Future Ready Yet Fully Backward Compatible
The NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G Pro PCIe Controller Card is like a "performance assurance policy" as conventional hard disk drives and SSDs migrate to the SATA 6Gb/s standard. Installing the card now offers immediate speeds gains while making a Mac Pro or PC future ready for even greater speed gains. Like all good upgrades, the card doesn't leave the past behind. The NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G Pro PCIe Controller Card is fully backward compatible with PCIe 1.0 slots as well as previous generations of SATA 1.5Gb/s and 3Gb/s drives.
Driverless Install for Mac and PC1 With No Updating Needed
High performance doesn't mean a thing if its highly complicated to use, install, or a hassle to keep maintained. Because the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G Pro PCIe Controller Card is fully compliant with the industry standard Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI), there are no drivers to install and no future driver downloading/updating required. Additionally, the card uses the same connecting cables utilized by earlier SATA 1.5Gb/s and 3Gb/s devices for straight from the box, "install it and forget it" highest levels of convenience and performance.
Adds Faster Than Factory Interface To Mac Pros
From faster backups and file transfers to high-end Audio/Video editing, connecting an eSATA interface equipped device to the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G Pro PCIe Controller Card can take data transfer performance to an entirely new level. Compatible with Mac Pro models and PCs with an available PCIe 2.0 slot2, the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G Pro PCIe Controller Card works with many eSATA-equipped external hard drives3 or optical drives, to deliver significantly faster data transfer rates over the fastest factory equipped Mac Pro interface of FireWire 800.
1. Driver required for use with Windows 8 and 8.1.
2. Up to 375MB/s total for x1 PCIe 2.0 slot or 180MB/s total for x1 PCIe 1.0 slot
3. Dependent upon external enclosure compatibility. This card does not support port multiplier enclosures.
