Description

This PCIe USB 3.2 Gen 2 controller card installs into an available PCI-Express x4 slot on your computer and allows you to upgrade your existing system by adding four SuperSpeed ​​USB-A ports (10Gbps). The card includes two ASM3142 controllers with up to 20Gbps total bandwidth, shared between the 4 ports.

Add four 10Gbps USB Type-A ports to your desktop computer
The controller card allows you to connect four USB-A Gen 2 (10Gbps) devices to your desktop computer. The USB-A ports are ideal for connecting USB devices such as external hard drives and solid state drives, or for powering and syncing your mobile devices. The USB-A ports provide up to 4.5W (5V / 0.9A) of power per USB port, and are backward compatible with USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5Gbps) as well as USB 2.0 (480Mbps) devices.

Note: USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), and USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5Gbps) is also known as USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 (5Gbps).

Performance SuperSpeed ​​USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps)
The USB 3.2 Gen 2 card includes two ASMedia ASM3142 host controllers that use x4 channels of the PCIe 2.0 bus, allowing the card to achieve speeds of up to 10Gbps per port, as well as fast access to high-performance devices such as NVMe drives and of SSD hard drives. The controller cards support the “Multiple IN” option to reduce bandwidth loss when connecting multiple devices, even when connecting via a USB hub. (Note: the USB hub must support this feature.) The card also supports UASP, for best performance with storage devices.

Wide installation compatibility
This add-in card includes a full-profile installation bracket, ensuring that it can be installed in full-profile PCIe 2.0 x4 slots. For greater compatibility, the card is compatible with Windows, Linux, and macOS operating systems. To facilitate installation, the driver software is automatically installed on computers running Windows 8 or higher. Works with USB 3.1 / 3.0 / 2.0 devices

Applications
