CRU-Wiebetech G5 Jam w ith 2 - 250GB Hard Product Details
WiebeTech announces G5Jam, which allows users to install a total of four drives within the G5. When these drives are RAIDed under OSX, resulting performance exceeds 200MB/sec and is suitable for support of uncompressed1080i 10bit editing under Final Cut Pro. G5Jam is a very simple product. It’s actually a kit, and is comprised of a total of four drives (replacing the original drive included with the user’s G5), a replacement air baffle/mounting plate, a SATA PCI host card, and
all cables. It’s easy to install and use. The drives may be used individually (providing normal performance of about 55MB/sec) or RAIDed, which produces amazing performance numbers. And under Panther, the RAID is bootable. G5Jam solves the biggest problem of the G5 – internal drive storage space. G5Jam is the fastest internal storage solution available for the G5.
^^ Replacement G5 Air Baffle
This improved baffle allows mounting of two additional drives in the G5. It is constructed from mirror aluminum and preserves the original internal air flow of the G5. It also serves as an extraordinary heat sink for the two additional drives which are mounted to the new air baffle.
^^ Additional Storage Capacity
Allows up to 2 Terabytes of storage to be mounted inside the G5.
^^ Supports OS X Soft RAID
Provides performance in excess of 200MB/sec. Drives may also be configured individually.
^^ Supports HD Editing
Has been tested with 1080i 10bit under Final Cut Pro in a variety of demanding edits. (May support 1080i across the entire disk map - performance does degrade as written cylinder count increases.)
^^ Includes SATA Adapter Card
May be installed in any open PCI slot within the G5. Supports up to 2 additonal SATA drives.
