Like many consumers, you may be using more high-speed USB 3.0 devices. USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps* for much faster transfer and backups and better performance from connected devices. The 2-port IFC-PCIE2U3S2 PCI-Express Interface Card lets you enjoy the superior performance of these devices. But don't worry, both ports are also backward compatible with earlier USB 2.0 devices. The included low-profile bracket lets the card fit in the slim PCs easily, uses only one PCI Express bus, and the ports allow connection of two USB 3.0 devices such as external HDD, USB flash memory, SSD, and other USB devices at the same time.
