Expand your computer's storage capacity by installing the M.2 2x4 Low Profile PCIe 3.0 x8 Card from Sonnet into an available PCI express x8 slot. There are two M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe 3.0 sockets built onto this card, supporting up to 16TB of separately purchased double-sided solid-state storage in RAID 0, or 1 configurations. Sustained read speeds can reach up to 6600 MB/s in RAID 0 mode, providing the performance needed for demanding tasks such as video editing, 3D modeling, design, and more. A custom designed passive, silent cooling solution allows drives to maintain high performance during large file transfers without speed throttling. The self-contained card works with most motherboards with an available PCIe 3.0 x8 slot using macOS, Windows 10, and Linux operating systems alongside a wide variety of M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs.
M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD Expansion
This M.2 2x4 PCIe card allows you to install up to two of your own double-sided M.2 NVMe solid-state drives, for a total of 16TB, into a single PCIe 3.0 x8 slot.
The PCIe 3.0 x8 host bus interface provides four lanes of bandwidth to the installed SSDs for maximum performance. Sustained data transfer speeds can reach up to 6600 MB/s in RAID 0 mode and 3400 MB/s from individual SSDs.
Connected solid-state drives may be put into RAID 0 or 1 configuration.
This PCIe x8 adapter includes both low-profile and full-height brackets, allowing it to be installed into most computer systems and compatible enclosures.
The M.2 2x4 card's cooling design allows it to stay silent while helping avoid speed throttling during large file transfers.
Optimized for Thunderbolt 3
This PCIe card is compatible with separately purchased Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 expansion systems, which can transfer up to 2800 MB/s through a single cable.
Supports booting from a single (non-RAID) attached SSD.
Supports SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting.
