Four ESATA (6Gb) Ports PCIe X4 V2 Supports Port Multiplier In Mac, Windows And Linux
Our newest and latest four ports eSATA (6Gb) fully support Port Multiplier host controller is here - eS3-PCIe24 - a direct replacement of eSATA_PCIe8 (EOL), a PCIe 4x lane V2 (20Gbps) with 4-port eSATA (6Gb/s per port) host controller that takes SATA Port Multiplier performance and features to enterprise levels. TheeS3-PCIe24 is a driver-less HBA fully support SATAII / III (6Gb/s) Specification on Windows, Mac, and Linux (PM ware). Twenty devices can be connected via our card
eS3-PCIe24 - Key Features
- Four eSATA (External SATA I II) ports (6Gbps - compatible with 3Gb PM bridge)
- Support MAC 10.x built-in AHCI, WindowXP to Windows 2012, Linux Kernel 2.6.x
- 4x lanes PCI Express V2 connection offering 20Gbps bandwidth
- Supports Port Multipliers with FIS based switching or Command Base
- Connect up to Twenty drives via SATAII or SATAIII Port Multiplier including SATA Drives, ODD or SSD
- 6Gbps eSATA III External 4 Ports PCIe Gen2 or Gen1 x4 Lane Host Adapter
- Support SATA Hot-plug capability, Native Command Queuing (NCQ). Windows and Linux OS booting
Using up to four lanes PCI-Express Gen 2, eS3-PCIe24 provides a 20Gb/s data channel that harnesses the total speed of up to twenty (20) hard drives, allowing manufacturers to take full advantage of the speed and plug-and-play convenience of external SATAIII.
Over 1300MB/sec transfers have been measured with four sBOX-eS configured as RAID0.
The eSATA ports on eS3-PCIe24 is a 6Gb/s port, fully compliance SATA III spec, making them ideal for connecting multi drive storage solutions through Port Multiplier bridge boards old 3.0Gb or newer 6Gb/s PM bridges.
Support for FIS Based Port Multipliers
The eS3-PCIe24 supports port multipliers using FIS based switching. Traditional SATA controllers only support CMD based switching which can only access a single drive at a time, limiting performance to that of the drive being accessed. The eSATA-PCIe8, based on AsMedia 106x chip-set, supports FIS based switching which accesses multiple drives simultaneously, effectively aggregating the bandwidth of all the drives, including CD/DVD/BD drives.
Our test shows 20x drive RAID0 via four sBOX-eS - SATA III Port Multiplier enclosure - read/write of 1300MB/a can be achieved
Our eS3-PCIe24 offers 4x independent 6Gb/s eSATA is an indispensable host controller that provides FAST and COST effective solutions for massive storage
