Here we get our first look at the adapter. We found a PLX chip as well as dual Marvell SATA 6G controllers. The four SATA ports are at the back of the card and face two different directions; each side ran off a separate Marvell chip.

Here we see the layout a bit closer. To maximize performance with two drives it is best to run one drive on each Marvell controller.

The back of the controller is fairly uneventful with little to dive deeper into.

In the package we found round longer than average SATA cables, a driver / manual disk, a printed quick install manual and finally, a low profile bracket.
