Built around a new, second generation chipset, it offers greatly improved performance over older 6 Gb/s eSATA cards.

Why choose an eSATA Card? If you're planning to connect external storage to your computer, there's a good chance the enclosure will have two or more interfaces from which to choose, including FireWire, USB and eSATA. Your computer has USB ports, may have FireWire ports, and maybe even a Thunderbolt port, too. So if you can just plug into your computer's existing ports, why consider an eSATA card? Consider the facts that the 6 Gb/s eSATA interface offers superior performance to that of FireWire 800 and all USB interfaces, and Thunderbolt storage systems carry a price premium over eSATA storage systems. Sonnet's Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb 2-port card is cost-effective solution for adding two high-performance eSATA ports to your computer so you can take advantage of this speedy interface.
