Overview
Add Four Powerful SuperSpeed USB Connections to Your Mac Pro® Tower, Windows® PC, or Thunderbolt™-to-PCI Express Card Expansion System
Your computer's USB 2.0 ports are perfectly adequate for connecting mice, keyboards, and printers, but if you need to connect external storage drives, USB 2.0 ports are underpowered in more ways than one—limiting data transfer speeds to around 25–30 MB/s, they can hardly be called “high performance”. Most drives available today include USB 3.0 interfaces and offer significantly better performance than USB 2.0-equipped drives. Though you can connect them to your computer's USB 2.0 ports, their performance would be reduced by as much as 85 percent! Don't settle for slow performance—install a Sonnet Allegro USB 3.0 4-Port card to instantly add four SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports to your system to take full advantage of today's drives' performance capabilities.
