The 4-port PCIUSB3S4 PCI to USB 3.0 card enables previous generation PCI slots to support the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard, which achieves data transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps. USB 3.0 devices used with this card will achieve superior data transfer rates of up to 1.3 Gbps of available bandwidth (PCI bus limit), more than twice the performance of a USB 2.0 connection.
This versatile USB 3.0 adapter includes an optional SATA power connector, allowing USB 3.0 devices connected to each USB port to draw up to 900 mA of power – appropriate power even for high-power devices.
Perfect solution for previous generation PCI-based systems or computers that only have PCI expansion slots, this card allows such systems to stay useful and up-to-date with the latest in USB technology. This card is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.x devices, so it supports both future USB 3.0 devices as well as previous generation devices.
