PCIe Computer Cards
(SSD/SATA/10 Gigabit Ethernet/USB 3.0/USB 3.1 (Gen 2)/FireWire® 800)
PCI Express® cards are for Mac® and Windows® desktop computers and Thunderbolt™ expansion systems with PCIe slots. PCIe cards can have multiple data lanes for more bandwidth to the host computer. For example, a four-lane PCIe card will be designated as PCIe x4.
SSD PCIe Cards
High-performance 6Gb/s SATA 2.5″ SSD PCIe card. Supports one or two 2.5″ SATA SSDs or HDDs which are mounted directly to the card; drives sold separately. Modular design supports installation in short space with single SSD when card is used in half-length configuration. Optimized for best performance over Thunderbolt.
SATA PCIe Cards
Tempo SATA E2P
External 2-port SATA, x1 PCIe card. Each port supports port multiplier functionality at 3Gb/s to interface to multiple drives. Not recommended for high-performance RAID configurations. Sonnet’s most cost-effective solution for modest SATA performance. Least expensive SATA card for Windows PC’s and older Macs.
Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb 4-Port
Professional, external 4-port SATA, x4 PCIe 2.0 card. Each port supports 6Gb/s to interface with four drive enclosures. Recommended for maximum performance with 6Gb/s SSD drives and optimized for best performance over Thunderbolt.
