SATA 6G and USB 3.0 for all
If you are looking to upgrade your computer with USB 3.0 or SATA 6G support, you can either upgrade your system board or add in a expansion card like one of the two we are looking at today. The U3N2 and the S6M2 use controllers we are well familiar with to get the job done but in smaller and less expensive packages.With two emerging storage standards, USB 3.0 and SATA 6G (6.0 Gb/s), more and more users are going to be looking at either upgrading their motherboard or adding new accessories to their systems to support these new features. For consumers that don’t want to bother with the hassle of upgrading their motherboard or just don’t want to pay that kind of money, ECS has a couple of options available to add USB 3.0 or SATA 6G support to your current rig.
