Compliant with Windows 64/32 7,2000, XP, Vista, Linux, and Mac OS 10.3.x or later, our latest eSATA_PCIe8 host adapters provides end users and System Integrator with unparalleled features and performance.

Based on a radically dual chip set architecture SiI 3124A (a successor of SiI 3124-2) and Intel, the eSATA_PCIe8 is a extremely fast PCI Express 8x host adapter with four esATA ports fully supporting port multiplier bridge controller.

Our eSATA_PCIe8 takes SATA performance and features to enterprise levels: massive data storage space (JBoD), high performance data transfer rate RAID 0, or high availability RAID 1, RAID 5. Our eSATA_PCIe8 fills the of applications such as servers, workstations storage systems that require maximum performance from their storage assets.

Utilizing a eight lanes (8x) PCI Express interface and four (4) independent Serial ATA (eSATA) channels, the eSATA_PCIe8 can be add to motherboard\'s PCI-Express 16x or PCI-Express 8x slots to increase the bandwidth to 2GB/sec Here are the screen capture of the our eSATA_PCIe8 transfered rate: Machine: Apple Mac Pro eSATA_PCIe8 HBA card Sbox-P: 5-drive Port Multiplier Enclosure 5 drives OS stripped via 1x eSATA connection Hard drive used: Seagate ST3160211AS AJA KONA System Test (Version 2) Sustained tranfer rate: - Read - 234.2MB/s - Write - 212.9MB/s Machine: Apple Mac Pro eSATA_PCIe8 HBA card Sbox-P: 5-drive Port Multiplier Enclosure 5 drives OS stripped via 1x eSATA connection Hard drive used: Seagate ST3160211AS AJA KONA System Test (Version 2) Sustained transfer rate: - Read - 274.6MB/s - Write - 273.5MB/s Machine: P4-3.0GHz, 512MB, WinXP eSATA_PCIe8 HBA card Sbox-M: 4-drive Port Multiplier Enclosure 4 drives OS stripped via 1x eSATA connection Hard drive used: Seagate ST3160211AS AJA KONA System Test (Version 2) Sustained transfer rate: - Read - 270.0MB/s - Write - 232.5MB/s

With our eSATA_PCIe8 comes with drivers for the Windows, Linux, MAC and operating systems for both RAID and non-RAID operations. Software RAID 0 (striping), RAID 1 (mirroring), RAID 1+0 (mirrored stripe), and RAID 5 (parity stripe) functions are supported through Silicon Image?s SATARaid? RAID management software utility. With Intel and SiI solution

Our eSATA_PCIe8 is designed for optimum performance with NCQ and Bus mastering technology. Multiple commands for each port are loaded into on-chip memory eliminating the need for host CPU intervention and minimizing PCI bus usage. Command execution engines dramatically reduce latency between commands, ensuring that drives stay fully loaded with queued commands.
