          Compatibility Notes Faster USB performance:
          By adding 10Gbps USB ports to your computer, you can harness the speed of USB 3.1 Gen 2 and rest assured you’re ready for both current and future high-bandwidth USB-A devices.

          With higher data throughput, this PCI Express USB 3.1 card is a necessity for external hard drives, hard drive enclosures, and many other USB 3.1 peripherals. Plus, the USB card integrates a SATA power connector to support high-powered devices, making it ideal for use with large external storage solutions.

          For more flexibility, you can couple the card with a USB-C to USB-A Cable (USB31AC1M) and connect your USB Type-C devices.

          Compatible with older USB devices:
          Connecting older peripherals isn’t a problem. This versatile USB 3.1 card is backward compatible with legacy USB 3.0/2.0 devices that use the common USB Type-A port, so you can eliminate the added expense and aggravation of purchasing new devices.

          Easy to install, in virtually any Windows based PC:
          The USB 3.1 Gen 2 card offers hassle-free installation with no additional software or drivers required in natively supported Windows 10, 8.1, and 8 operating systems. Plus, the high-quality card includes both standard-profile and low-profile/half-height brackets, making it easy to install in full or small form-factor PCs or servers.
