G-Technology Inc. (G-Tech) on Monday announced its first host bus adapter for Power Mac G5 systems that features two external eSATA (external serial ATA) interfaces and PCI-Express connectivity. The $80 card will ship in April.
The card supports data rates up to 125MB/sec. The G-Tech eSATA PCI-Express adapter is particularly well-suited for users who need to transfer multistream uncompressed video, according to the company — it supports DV, HDV, DVCPRO HD, 8-bit and 10-bit uncompressed video editing. It’s compatible with Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger.”
G-Tech’s Web site had not been updated with information on the new card as Macworld posted this article.
