Pci Usb For Mac Pro


If you have an old Mac Pro you want to extend the life of a USB 3 card like this is a great addition. I have a 2009 Mac Pro that I flashed to the 5.1 firmware with the following upgrades: W3680 6 core 3.33ghz cpu 24GB DDR3 Ram GTX680 Graphics PCI-E Wifi Card 2X SSD in Optical Bay 4x HD in HD Tray This USB3 Card My system currently runs High Sierra. Sedna - PCI Express USB 3.1 Gen I (5Gbps) 4 Port Adapter with Low Profile Bracket - Supports Windows, Linux and Mac Pro (2008 to 2012 Late Version), no Need.

I have a 3.0 card installed which does not work. I d/l a generic driver but can't install it. I need 3.0 for new devices.
