6Gbps eSATA III External 4 Ports PCIe Gen2 or Gen1 x4 Lane Host Adapter

Support SATA Hot-plug capability, Native Command Queuing (NCQ). Windows and Linux OS booting
Using up to four lanes PCI-Express Gen 2, eS3-PCIe24 provides a 20Gb/s data channel that harnesses the total speed of up to twenty (20) hard drives, allowing manufacturers to take full advantage of the speed and plug-and-play convenience of external SATAIII.

Over 1300MB/sec transfers have been measured with four sBOX-eS configured as RAID0.
The eSATA ports on eS3-PCIe24 is a 6Gb/s port, fully compliance SATA III spec, making them ideal for connecting multi drive storage solutions through Port Multiplier bridge boards old 3.0Gb or newer 6Gb/s PM bridges.

The eS3-PCIe24 supports port multipliers using FIS based switching. Traditional SATA controllers only support CMD based switching which can only access a single drive at a time, limiting performance to that of the drive being accessed. The eSATA-PCIe8, based on AsMedia 106x chip-set, supports FIS based switching which accesses multiple drives simultaneously, effectively aggregating the bandwidth of all the drives, including CD/DVD/BD drives.
