- Double the speed: transfer data at 800Mbits/s
- Backwards compatibility: works with FireWire 400
- Effective design: reduced arbitration delays and signal distortion
Speed, speed and more speed
The latest implementation of the IEEE 1394b standard is all about speed – it doubles the transfer rate of the original FireWire, and has more than two times the usable bandwidth of USB 2.0.
The interface for digital content creators
FireWire 800 is ideal for anyone dealing with bandwidth-intensive projects, such as audio, video and graphics. By incorporating FireWire 800 into RAID 0 and 5 arrays, digital content creators will see even further enhanced transfer speeds.
FireWire 800 has all of the advantages of the original FireWire standard – the ability to connect up to 63 devices on the same bus, plug and play connectivity, real-time data delivery and the ability to power devices through the bus. Plus, all your FireWire 400 devices work on the new port.
