Handle your workload more efficiently. This USB 3.0 card expands your computer's capabilities by giving you seven extra USB 3.0 ports. It's engineered with an innovative stacked port layout to fit easily into both low-profile and standard desktop computers.
Greater port count. Greater scalability.
More ports means you can add USB devices as you need them. This robust USB 3.0 card gives you seven USB 3.0 ports - six external and one internal - so you can plug in your tablets, smartphones, external hard drives, CD/DVD drives, printer and other devices at the same time. With so many extra ports, you can leave your devices plugged in, so they're ready to use when you need them. It's also economical - by being able to connect so many devices, you save the cost of extra hubs or cards.
The internal USB 3.0 port lets you connect a USB device inside your computer for added convenience and security.
