WiebeTech on Tuesday announced two additions to its TeraCard series of Serial ATA (SATA) host adapter cards. The new cards enable PCI Express (PCIe)-equipped Power Mac G5s to use SATA storage peripherals. Both cards are priced at $99.95.
The TeraCard TCES0-2e has two external SATA ports that are compatible with any external SATA drive enclosure. The TCES2-0 uses two internal ports instead. It’s also being bundled with WiebeTech’s G5Jam Express, which helps Power Mac G5 users add two more additional internal hard disk drives.
Both cards are Mac OS X and Windows compatible, and operate with SATA 1 and SATA 2 drives. LBA supports drives larger than 137GB, and each card features two independent SATA channels.
