    Hi Folks..any such thing as a USB 3.0 PCI card setup that I can use in both Snow Leopard and Mavericks?

    I have an upgraded Mac Pro that i use to run a couple of devices - a few older ones..So I keep two boot discs onboard to run Snow Leopard and Mavericks at different times..

    Want a reliable USB 3 card for both..i know this is a longshot but seems like it might out there??

    Thanks..

    Sounds quite impossible. The 1st batch USB 3.0 commercial controller was released at about early 2010. Apple adopt to USB 3.0 at about mid 2012. OSX 10.6 was introduced back in 2009. I really doubt if 10.6 has any USB 3.0 driver.

    Thanks Synchro..

    So, you're saying do not get the 'pro' or the 'plus' versions of this card?
