Supported in the Mac Pro when configured with the Mac Pro RAID card, the 300GB SAS drive is a 15.000-rpm high-performance hard drive with 16MB of drive cache in a special drive carrier module designed to work with the cable-free, direct-attach drive bays in your Mac Pro for easy installation and removal.
SAS drives deliver up to 250MB/s sequential read performance in RAID 5 and outstanding random access performance for the most demanding applications. SAS drives are ideal for applications requiring the highest performance, fastest random access times, and highest reliability available. SAS drive modules features a point-to-point interconnect to each drive, enabling each drive to be electrically isolated from each other so that drives don't compete for bandwidth, and utilize a protocol that enables fast data transfer to and from the hard drive - 3.0 gigabytes of data per second.
