Q: How many PCIe lanes does the card have? x1 x2 or x4? I understand that it needs to be at least x2 if both sata ports are used or the throughput will be halved and the performance of sata 3 drives will be degraded?
Answer by Website User on 2nd October 2018
This is x1. just 1 data lane on a PCI-E slot is about 10 times faster than a sata slot is so I can assure you will not have bottleneck problems.

Answer by Website User on 29th January 2020
The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface. If used with PCI Express Gen 1.0 enabled computers, the max throughput is 2.5 Gbps (250MB/s). If used with PCI Express Gen 2.0 enabled computers, the max throughput is 5 Gbps (500MB/s). So if you have 1 or 2 SSD's on this card it will be the bottle neck and the performance of the SATA drives will be degraded.

Q: The SATA 1 connnection on my M/B is damaged (the little pins broke off). If I use this SATA card in a PCI slot, will it allow me to use the SATA connections on the card without any direct connection to the M/B? In other words, will I be able to connect my SATA hard drive to this card and be able to boot up as normal?
Answer by CCL on 24th June 2013
Yes, you can boot from a SATA hard drive connected to this card. -Danlevan

Q: Does the card support drives of 3TB or 4TB
Answer by CCL on 18th December 2012
This card has no limit on the size of the drives it supports. -MR
0 customers found this answer helpful.
Answer by Website User on 18th December 2012
Although your answer mentions that it doesnt have a limit, does this mean that If I purchase this card I will be able to access hard drives over 3TB on my machine in a single volume. As an answer to another question I raised said that the limit lies on the motherboard bios, so if the motherboard doesnt support HDDs over 3TB then the Cards will not either. But I though the IO cards have thier own Bios, so its irrelevant if the Motherboard supports or not. For e.g. my MB is Asus Sabertooth 58 with i7 processor. So to ask the question again before I purchase this card, will I be able to use this card on My PC to acess hard drives over 3TB in a single volume, without partiton. Quick reply would be Great, so I can buy before christmas.

Q: Thanks for the info. As you say, 'Mechanical drives have no speed benefit going from SATA2 to SATA3 either.' what is the point of a SATA3 drive?? Martin
Answer by Website User on 12th December 2011
It is marketing from the drive manufacturers to encourage sales, only current generation SSD drives require SATA-III. There will be cost savings as well, with development time being put into SATA-III controllers on motherboards and drives it reduces cost for the drives that can benefit.

Answer by CCL on 12th December 2011
SATA 3 is more designed for Solid State Drives, which are able to utilise SATA 3 a lot better than mechanical drives.

Q: Hi, I recently purchased a SATA3 drive from you, not realizing it was SATA3. My motherboard is an ASUS P5Q-E which supports SATA2. Will this card allow me to use my new SATA3 drive, or is there something else I need?? Thanks Martin PS I am running Ubuntu 10.11 or later, (I think!!!)
Answer by Website User on 9th December 2011
SATA3 drives are backwards compatible to SATA2 so you wouldnt need to buy anything to get the drive to work. :) Mechanical drives have no speed benefit going from SATA2 to SATA3 either.
0 customers found this answer helpful.
Answer by CCL on 9th December 2011
This will allow you to connect SATA devices at 6 GBps. SATA is backwards compatible, however, so a SATA 3 drive will connect to a motherboard with SATA 2 and run at 3 Gbps without problem.

Q: If I attach an ssd drive using this card can I boot off a windows 7 dvd and install to the ssd attached to it?
Answer by CCL on 23rd July 2011
This can be done however it is reliant on your board and you will have to configure it to do so, for this reason it is not recommended and has a lower reliability. We recommend just using the ports on the board.
