TurboMAX offers a data storage breakthrough for Macintosh owners. For the first time, you can install a PCI card in your Macintosh that will allow you to add fast, inexpensive, Ultra DMA EIDE/ATA hard disk drives to PCI Macintosh computers. High performance, high capacity storage at unbelievably low cost. As much as 185 GB of data storage for little as $2555.00. This is enough storage to hold 12.5 hours of DV video! G3 computers built prior to May, 1998 can now install two additional EIDE drives from 25 to 37 GB each. Five additional EIDE disk drives can be installed in Blue/White G3ís introduced June 1, 1999 and all G4ís.

TurboMAX Kits include a TurboMAX/ATA PCI host adapter especially configured for Ultra DMA disk drives. Disk drives can be formatted with standard MacOS partitions or can be striped in pairs as RAID-0 for sustained transfer rates high as 29 MB/sec using optional striping software such as Remus. The TurboMAX card supports channels 0 and 1 with master/slave capability.
