ACARD wrote:The ACARD AEC-6280M is the leading Mac add-on card, supports ANSI X3T9.2 CAM ATA4/ATA5/ATA6, data transfer rate up to 133 MB/sec and meets the demand of multimedia, real time video. It’s also backward compatible with traditional ATA modes.
The ACARD AEC-6280M supports all models of PowerMac which have a PCI slot, including PowerMac 7200, G3, G4. For PowerMac older than G4, ACARD AEC-6280M can really boost the disk performance up to 100%. For PowerMac G4, ACARD AEC-6280M allows Mac to add more drives and use software RAID.
It supports the true PnP function, in Mac 8.5 and later version, there are no software driver needed for installing an Ultra ATA133/100/66/33 HDD. With the advanced function, the adapter is really user friendly. It is coexist with the on board IDE controller. ACARD AEC-6280M with on board BIOS supports system to boot from ATA HDD. ACARD AEC-6280M also supports multitasking to improve the CPU performance.
