The ACARD AC 6712U/TU is a high performance and high quality PCI bus Ultra SCSI adapter. The adapter features a 32-bit bus master capability and is able to transfer data at high speeds of 133MB/s (megabytes per second). The adapter provides users with Gather/Scatter function that improves the performance of multitasking operating systems. The ACARD AEC 6712U/TU can be able to support peripheral devices conforming to the SCSI-1, SCSI-2 AND SCSI-3 standards. These supported peripheral devices include hard disk, CD-ROM drive, removable hard drive, optical disk, MO disk drive, CD-R, tape drive, scanner among others. The adapter supports an asynchronous maximum transfer rate of 7 MB/s while a maximum of 20MB/s synchronous for Ultra SCSI-3. The adapter is able to support up to 7 hard drives without users having to add extra drivers. The performance of the adapter is further enhanced by its support for Plug and Play.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
ACARD AEC-6712U/TU PCI Ultra SCSI adapter has support for both multi tasking and multi threading as well as automatic FIFO threshold selection. The adapter operates using the flash BIOS interface and can be operated using a combination of commands, which significantly reduces interrupt handling responsibilities. Other features included in the adapter are the programmable terminator control and an advanced powerful setup function. Though the AEC 6712U/TU is able to support hard drive without installing device drivers especially in the DOS operating system, other drivers must be installed for it to support other devices besides hard drives. The AEC-6712U/TU SCSI connector includes 8-bit 50 pins internal as well as 8 bit- 50 pins external. The 12 cm long and 8.4 cm wide AEC 6712U/TU PCI Ultra SCSI adapter power requirement is about 5V +/- 5% with a current of 1.8 A. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ACARD AEC-6712U/TU PCI Ultra SCSI Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
