Ultra Low Power Consumption
With its unmatched feature set, the CN800 assists in reducing overall system power consumption by reducing the workload on the processor during critical applications such as digital video and audio playback. Power consumption is further reduced through advanced power management features that vary its power consumption according to workload.
* RAID Level 0+1 requires four Serial ATA drives; support for the two additional drives can only be implemented with two external Serial ATA ports enabled through a SATALite™ PHY.
