Sonnet Technologies today announced the Tempo Bridge, the latest addition to the Sonnet Tempo line of products. “The Tempo Bridge makes it easy to install a 3.5-inch parallel ATA hard drive inside a Power Mac G5 the first Apple computer featuring the Serial ATA (SATA) drive interface. Serial ATA, the emerging high-performance drive interface technology, offers greater performance than parallel ATA and uses smaller cables and connectors for better cooling. However, SATA is incompatible with ordinary parallel ATA drives. The Tempo Bridge creates an upgrade path for using a spare drive, or moving one from an older computer to a new G5.” The Tempo Bridge is expected to begin shipping October 25, with an suggested retail price of US$49.95.
