Can your computer harness all the performance offered by today's fast multimedia peripherals? Does it have enough ports to connect your peripheral collection? Install Sonnet's Tango 3.0 PCIe into your computer to instantly add (or add more of) the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and high-speed FireWire 800 (1394b) connections you need!

Your computer's USB ports 2.0 are perfectly adequate for connecting mice and keyboards, but performance-wise, they're merely passable - they limit data transfer speeds to around 25-30 MB/s. But, when you connect an external drive and expect great performance, that bottleneck is a problem - video editing, backing up, and other data-intensive activities suffer as a result. The Tango 3.0 PCIe card's USB 3.0 ports provide up to 10x the performance of your computer's USB 2.0 ports and exploit the full performance potential of fast external drives. Each USB port supports USB 3.0 hubs, and provides 1A of power to connected devices, enabling you to forgo connecting power adapters for many bus-powered drives.

The Tango 3.0 PCIe card's three external FireWire 800 ports extract every ounce of performance from fast external drives, DV camcorders, and digital audio interfaces to deliver maximum data transfer speeds and satisfy the demands of video and pro audio application work, where high-speed and high-bandwidth data throughput are essential. Each FireWire provides 1A of power to connected devices, too.

Tango 3.0 PCIe installs easily into one of your computer's PCI Express (PCIe) slots, features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection support with automatic device configuration, and works with all industry-standard USB 3.0, USB 2.0(1), FireWire 800, and FireWire 400 peripherals. Get a Tango 800 3.0 to make the fastest connections to your digital device collection.
