Add Two External Or Internal SATA 6 Gbps Ports To A Computer Through A PCI Express Slot The PEXESAT322I PCI Express SATA III Controller Card (6 Gbps) gives you the option to add two internal or external SATA ports to your computer, through a single PCI Express (x1) card slot. The card features on board jumper selection, which enables you to configure the card to provide two internal or external SATA III ports, or one of each, as needed. This PCIe SATA controller card has two SATA channels that can be independently switched between the internal or external (eSATA) ports as neededView larger This versatile add-in card offers SATA III connectivity (6Gbps), while remaining backward compatible with SATA I (1.5Gbps) and II (3Gbps) device connections, which helps eliminate the expense of having to upgrade drivesView larger Includes both a full and low profile/half-height bracket for installation into any size of desktop computerView larger Add two SATA or two eSATA 6Gbps ports using an available PCI Express slot View larger Provides option to either setup two internal SATA III (SATA 600) hard drives or connect externally to SATA III (SATA 600) external hard drive solutions View larger Includes low profile/half-height installation bracketView larger The SATA III card features Port Multiplier (PM) support on each port, which allows multiple drives to be connected over a single cable when necessary to maximize the number of SATA device connections while reducing the amount of cabling required. The card is fully compliant with the SATA revision 3.0 specification (up to 6Gbps of data bandwidth), enabling you to utilize the speeds of high performance hard drives and Solid State Drives (SSD), as well as SATA-based optical drives (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, Blu-Ray). Product Features & Applications Upgrade an older PCIe-based system with SATA 6Gbps connectivity, to better utilize faster SATA drivesAdd more internal SATA ports to a computer system, for connecting additional storage drives and/or optical drivesAdd internal and/or external SATA III ports to a computer through a single PCI Express slot, with the option to change the available connections to external/internal, as needed based on updated system requirements or applicationsTwo internal/external switchable SATA portsCompliant with SATA revision 3.0, which can support up to 6Gbps of bandwidthSupport for SATA-based optical drives (CD/DVD/BD)Uses existing SATA I/II cablingSupports Native Command Queuing (NCQ) and ATA/ ATAPI commandsPort multiplier FIS-based and command-based switching supportedCompliant with PCI Express 2.0 standards
