A while back I wrote a post that explains how to add super-fast USB 3.0 ports to an older PC, and that turned out to be one of the most popular posts I’ve ever written.
Well, a lot has changed since then. Now you can add five much faster USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports to your desktop computer for about what you’d pay for a really good pizza.
Upgrading your computer to USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C is easy!
Whether you have a Windows desktop PC or a Mac desktop, the procedure is basically the same as long as your machine has an open PCIe expansion slot. And it’s easy…
Simply purchase this 5 Port SB 3.2 Gen 2 adapter card and install it into the empty slot!
If you have a Mac running a recent version of macOS you won’t even have to install a driver for the adapter card!
Windows users will be able to download the latest driver directly from the manufacturer’s website.
Just to clarify, this card will not work in a laptop. However, it will work with any desktop computer that has a compatible (and currently unused) PCIe expansion slot.
If you thought your external USB hard drive or other device was fast, you’ll be completely blown away when you first plug a USB 3.2 Gen 2 model into your computer and match it with a USB 3.2 Gen 2 device!
