<b>SeriTek/Q6G</b><br><br>4-Port eSATA 6G Storage Adapter for Mac and Windows

Mac OS X Bootable, 4-Port, 6G, eSATA Host Adapter for PCI-Express Equipped Apple Mac Pro, Windows 7 PC or Thunderbolt PCIe Expansion Chassis

The SeriTek/Q6G is compatible with all Apple Mac Pro computers with an available PCI-Express slot. The high performance SeriTek/Q6G is Mac OS X Bootable, whether installed inside the Apple Mac Pro or inside a Thunderbolt PCIe expansion chassis. Windows 7 is also supported with Bootcamp or desktop PCs with an available PCI-Express 2.0 4x slot.

Ultra High Performance: The SeriTek/Q6G offers four channel, extreme PCIe 2.0 bandwidth, designed to maximize Solid State Drive (SSD) and Hard Disk Drive (HDD) performance. The latest 6G SSD technology requires maximum SATA controller bandwidth to enable full performance. The SeriTek/Q6G was born to meet this challenge. With each port featuring bandwidth over 500MB/s, the Q6G is a great option for adding a bootable 6G SSD to the Apple Mac Pro.

Direct Connect: Using a direct connect hard disk enclosure like the FirmTek miniSwap/ES allows up to two external 2.5-inch SSD or SATA hard disks to be attached to the SeriTek/Q6G. Dual miniSwap/ES enclosures can be connected to maximize all four SeriTek/Q6G ports. This configuration offers optimal bandwidth for ultra-high performance RAID installations with a limited number of disks. The SeriTek/Q6G controller allows the customer to select which hard disk configuration option best suits their needs.
