G-SPEED eS RAID Controller Breaks the 2TB Disk Capacity Limit on Windows XP! Windows 2000 / XP are 32 bit operating systems with a built-in limitation that logical disks cannot be greater than 2TB (2048GB). The G-SPEED eS RAID Controller breaks this barrier with a new technology, Variable Sector Size (VSS). VSS increases the sector size presented to the operating system making it possible to now have logical disks of up to 16TB! No more breaking large disk volumes into multiple 2TB volumes!
Industry Leading Playback Performance When used with the G-Tech PCIe RAID controller, a single 4-drive G-SPEED eS unit supports multi-stream DV, HDV, DVCPRO HD, ProRes 422 & uncompressed SD playback in RAID 0 or RAID 5 mode and single-stream 8-bit, 1080/60i HD playback in RAID 0 mode. Two G-SPEED eS units and the G-Tech PCIe RAID controller support all of the above plus 10-bit, 1080i/60 HD playback in RAID 0 or RAID 5 mode. As many as four G-SPEED eS enclosures can be attached to the G-Tech RAID controller to support up to 32TB storage with speeds in excess of 600MB/sec!
