Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a global leader in storage and multimedia products, has reportedly launched a USB 3.0 Expansion Card that ships with two high-speed USB 3.0 ports. This plug & play add-on card enables performance enthusiasts to connect high-speed USB 3.0-compatible peripherals to their desktop PC and experience data transfer rates up to ten times faster than USB 2.0 with optimized power efficiency.
Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Austin Huang, Regional Head - Sales, SAARC & APAC, Transcend is quoted to have said, “For users who are not prepared to upgrade their entire computer system for the sole purpose of adding USB 3.0 functionality, Transcend's USB 3.0 Expansion Card is a perfect solution that allows them to join the Super-Speed USB 3.0 revolution. The card's PCI Express 2.0 single lane connection interface is compatible with virtually all current motherboards, and guarantees unrestricted two-way communication between the computer and any USB devices plugged into the card”.
The USB 3.0 Expansion Card is armed with two external USB ports configured to fully support the new USB 3.0 standard with connection bandwidth of up to 5Gb/s, which is ten times faster than USB 2.0 specifications. With Transcend's USB 3.0 Expansion Card, users are expected to take the full advantage of their USB 3.0 external hard drives and USB flash drives without being restricted by the inadequate bandwidth of the previous USB technologies. The USB 3.0 card is said to be backwards compatible with USB 2.0 & USB 1.1. So, users could rest assured that their older devices would still work with the new interface.
In addition to providing a much faster transfer rate, Transcend's USB 3.0 card is rated to deliver 900mA of power per USB port, allowing about 80% more power to be available for connected devices (USB 2.0 is said to provide only 500mA). This translates into power-hungry devices operating with increased stability, and battery-powered devices being able to charge more quickly.
The PDU3 USB 3.0 Expansion Card is expected to be fully compatible with Windows 7, and is backed by Transcend's 2-year warranty. Promising exceptional quality at an affordable price, Transcend’s compact USB 3.0 card is a bang-for-the-buck solution to help users get in on the Super-Speed USB 3.0 highway.
