Adaptec 29160 vs. Tekram DC-390U3W
  May 7, 2001 Author: Terry Baranski  


The Tekram DC-390U3W...

The Tekram DC-390U3W is roughly equivalent to Adaptec's 29160 with the following difference: the DC-390U3W features two separate channels (one LVD, one SE) while the 29160, as discussed, has a single channel with two segments. This yields the DC390UW two advantages: 1) a maximum (theoretical) transfer rate of 200MB/sec (160MB/sec for the LVD channel and 40MB/sec for the SE channel), and 2) support for up to 30 devices.

The card's full specs follow:

  • Dual SCSI channels (one LVD, one SE)
  • Up to 200MB/sec performance
  • 64-bit PCI (32-bit compatible)
  • Internal connectors: One 68-pin for LVD SCSI, one 68-pin for Ultra Wide SCSI, one 50-pin for Ultra SCSI
  • External connectors: One 68-pin for LVD SCSI
