About the Sonnet E4i

Do your storage needs outweigh what your new dual-core Power Mac G5 can support? Stuff it - with drives, that is! Sonnet's Tempo SATA E4i 4-port Serial ATA Host Controller for PCI Express enables you to connect up to 4 additional internal drives for the perfect balance of flexible expandability and superior performance.

This card is an ideal companion to G5 Jive internal drive mount system for Power Mac G5 computers - along with your SATA drives, this combination is the most cost effective way for adding up to 4 Terabytes of high-performance capacity to your G5. Do you need more speed? Tempo SATA E4i offers 3Gb/s per port data transfer support and gives you performance to burn!

You'll get great performance from individual drives, but grouping up to four Serial ATA hard drives in a RAID 0 (striped) set will provide astonishing sustained read/write performance numbers enough to capture and process High Definition video! Want more security? Set up your drives in a RAID 0 (mirrored) or RAID 10 (striped/mirrored) set for up to 4 Terabytes of data redundancy.

When you need more flexibility and performance than offered by standard solutions, get a Tempo SATA E4i - it'll give you room to grow and blazing performance for the most demanding applications
