Press Release | USB 3.0 Overview

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 offers ten times greater bandwidth than USB 2.0, enabling dramatically faster access to external storage and mobile storage devices. The Atomix EC allows any laptop computer with an Express Card slot to be upgraded to USB 3.0. Within just a few minutes you can upgrade your notebook with two SuperSpeed ports that support lightning fast access to USB 3.0 peripherals. These USB ports are also backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices, so all your existing USB peripherals will still work in these ports.

If you run large backups regularly through a USB 2.0 backup drive, or if you do lots of video editing and need faster throughput to move those big files in a fraction the time the Atomix EC will give you the bandwidth you need to support USB 3.0 devices without buying a new laptop.
