Do you crave speed, but think you can’t afford it? Don’t
limit yourself to SCSI! For less than half the cost of a
comparable SCSI setup, install the Tempo RAID66 and
high-performance ATA hard drives into your Power Mac
G3 or G4 to create fast hardware RAID volumes.
Power Macintosh G3 Desktop
Using the Tempo RAID66’s striping function, your
system can realize significant performance gains over its
original single hard drive — performance perfect for
disk-intensive tasks such as multimedia authoring and
image editing. The dual independent IDE channels of
this card fully utilize the on-board 32-bit PCI Bus
Master for a data transfer rate up to 133 MB/s! Because
the Tempo RAID66 utilizes on-board Open Firmware,
you can even boot from attached drives to shorten your
start up times and speed the Mac OS’
operation.
