In the computer industry parallel bus interface has become the preference when dealing with interconnection of storage systems. The problem is that it has failed to adapt to the increased demands for data bandwidth along with exhibiting the necessary flexibility when interfacing ATA and SCSI devices. The Adaptec ASC-58300 SAS/SATA Controller along with its corresponding device driver was introduced specifically to address the architectural limitations that were imposed on its counterpart. The SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) allows for the transmission of signals along a serial stream which limits the crosstalk experienced in the wider parallel ribbon technology. The ability to move data within a single stream remain one of the best advantages presented by this technology coupled with an enhanced data transmission speed unlike parallel technology which was associated with specific clock speeds that dictated the rate of transfer.
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
The driver for the Adaptec ASC-58300 SAS/SATA Controller and similar hardware components supports the implementation of the wrapping of data bits using packets during transmission. The result is that the packets allow for as much as 30 times more speed compared to parallel downloading when measure from the source device. The Adaptec ASC-58300 SAS/SATA Controller also supports disk interconnection which allows storage devices to attain speeds up to 1.5 Gbps which can be mainly attributed to the lower cost when taken in the context of per gigabyte of transmitted data. SAS presents the computer industry with the improvement of the SATA technology which is based mostly on the leveraging of the SCSI feature sets. The design for the SAS as supported by the Adaptec ASC-58300 SAS/SATA Controller is to boost the current capabilities in terms of storage connection and protection. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Adaptec ASC-58300 SAS/SATA Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
