    4 Port PCI Express SATA III 6Gbps RAID Controller Card with Heatsink
    Marketing Information

    Add 4 Internal SATA III (6Gbps) ports to a computer through a PCI Express x2 slot. The PEXSAT34RH 4-Port PCI Express SATA III Controller Card adds 4 AHCI SATA III ports to a computer through a PCIe slot (x2), delivering multiple internal 6Gbps connections to high-performance hard drives and Solid State Drives (SSDs), all from a single PCIe expansion slot.

    The PCIe SATA controller card features Port Multiplier (PM) support on each port, which enables multiple SATA drives to be connected through one of the ports over a single cable, for a total of 7 simultaneous drive connections - (Connect up to 4 drives through PM on one port, and a single drive to each of the remaining 3 ports).

    Supporting RAID 0, RAID 1 and 1+0 configurations, this versatile PCI Express SATA RAID card includes an onboard heatsink to dissipate heat build-up, to help maintain peak operating performance even at full capacity.

    This PCIe SATA 6gbps card is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

    4 Port PCI Express SATA III 6Gbps RAID Controller Card with Heatsink
    Marketing Information
    Add 4 Internal SATA III (6Gbps) ports to a computer through a PCI Express x2 slot. The PEXSAT34RH 4-Port PCI Express 2.0 SATA Controller Card with HyperDuo adds 4 AHCI SATA III ports to a computer through a PCIe slot (x2), delivering multiple internal 6Gbps connections for high-performance hard drives and Solid State Drives (SSDs).

    Featuring HyperDuo technology, the SATA card offers SSD auto-tiering which lets you balance the performance advantages of SSD storage with the cost-effectiveness and large capacity of standard hard drives. By combining SSD and HDD drives into a single volume (up to 3 SSD + 1 HDD), HyperDuo discreetly works in the background to identify and move frequently accessed files to the faster SSD drive(s) for improved data throughput - up to 80% of SSD performance! (Note: The HyperDuo automatic storage tiering feature is compatible with computers that use a BIOS.)

    The PCIe SATA controller card supports Port Multiplier (PM), enabling multiple SATA drives to be connected to one port over a single cable, for a total of 7 drives (Up to 4 drives through PM on one port, and a single drive to the remaining 3 ports). Plus, the SATA controller card offers an effective hardware RAID solution, with native RAID (0, 1, 1+0) support.
