CalDigit's Fasta-2e eSATA card now supports up to 6Gbps

updated 05:50 pm EDT, Tue October 19, 2010

Backward compatible with legacy SATA devices

CalDigit, a firm who make storage solutions for the video and content-creation industries, have announced an upgrade to the Fasta-2e eSATA card that supports the latest SATA 6G technology, raising speeds up to six gigabits per second (6Gbps), a doubling of its previous speed limit. The upgraded card works with both G5 Power Macs (from late 2005 onwards) and Intel Mac Pros.

The card, which is made exclusively for the PCIe slot, does not require extra drivers or software to work, regardless of the PCIe generation or number of lanes, due to its use of the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI), standard in all recent versions of OS X.

The card comes with a removable bracket to fit servers and other low-profile machines. The card support S.M.A.R.T drive monitoring, booting and even "green" drives for SATA I, II and III mechanisms.

The CalDigit Fasta-2e card features a three-year warranty, and is available now from dealers for a retail price of $59.
