Hello feisha,

 

 

Thank you for contacting the Intel community.

 

 

No, unfortunately it is not supported; these chips are not validated for port multipliers. If you have for example a laptop with this processor and you try to connect it to a SATA port multiplier through eSATA connectors on the laptop, the eSATA are not "PM-aware", and thus will only see the first drive in the port multiplier enclosure.

 

 

 

Best regards,
