Fusion Pro eSATA/1394b Combo x4 PCI Express HBA
- ALL IN ONE -. The ultimate in performance, no other PCIe card offers this kind of flexibility. This Powerhouse PCIe card is based on SiI 3132 and the Texas Instruments XIO2213 chipset, with drivers(no extra drivers needed for FireWire) available for the MacOSX 10.4.x, Windows, Linux and Novell Netware operating systems for both RAID(eSATA ports only) and non-RAID operations.
The Fusion Pro PCIe x4 host bus adapter is designed for optimum performance and connectivity- and with eSATA, it supports multiple commands for each port which are loaded into on-chip memory eliminating the need for host CPU intervention and minimizing PCIe bus usage. Command execution engines dramatically reduce latency between commands, ensuring that drives stay fully loaded with queued commands.
Regardless if you are just using this card for standard high speed hard drive storage, RAIDs or serious digital audio or digital video, this card is the perfect solution - especially for users that require the incredible bandwidth and high speed access to external hard drives. The Fusion Pro can easily handle multi-stream of a variety video formats such as DVCPro HD, 8 bit SD, 10 bit SD, HDV, ProRes 422.
