Adaptec heeft een nieuwe Ultra2 SCSI controller in elkaar gesleuteld. Het ding is goed voor 80MB/s. Yahoo heeft wat info over deze kaart:
Adaptec has introduced two new Ultra2 SCSI cards. The 2930U2, designed for the desktop PC, is an affordable 80 MB per second solution with connectivity to all SCSI peripherals. The 3950U2, Adaptec's first 64-bit PCI SCSI card, doubles Ultra2 throughput, providing 160 MB per second performance to enterprise servers. Both products are available at prices comparable to previous generation SCSI products.
``Adaptec's goal is to deliver the best I/O products for each segment in computing,'' said Jim Comstock, director of distribution products for Adaptec. ``We've achieved that goal by designing new, state-of-the-art Ultra2 SCSI products optimized for each key market.''
The 32-bit PCI, single-channel 2930U2 SCSI card is Adaptec's lowest priced Ultra2 SCSI card, and is designed to connect common desktop peripherals such as hard disk drives, removable drives, CDR, and DVD drives. Because the 2930U2 incorporates Adaptec's SpeedFlex technology, 80 MB/second throughput can be realized regardless of the kinds of peripherals being used. Without SpeedFlex, users concurrently running Ultra2 Low Voltage Differential (LVD) hard disk drives and common (non-Ultra2) desktop peripherals cannot achieve this maximum performance. No other SCSI card on the market has the combined connector design and SpeedFlex-like technology which make this possible.
The continuous high data rate and flexibility of the 2930U2 make it ideal for professionals using complex graphics or database applications requiring moving large amounts of data and using a variety of peripherals. The 2930U2 includes support for Windows 95, 98 and NT.
