If you’re considering adding extra storage to your PC’s PCIe card slot, NAS, or Thunderbolt expansion system, you might be interested to know that this week Sonnet revealed its latest adapter in the form of PCI Express 3.0 card Equipped with two NVMe SSD slots.
The mid-length PCIe 3.0 card features a compact design and two M-keys. NVMe M.2 . Solid State Drive (SSD) Slots support NVMe PCIe SSD storage with an M.2 form factor. The Sonnet M.2 2×4 Low Level PCIe Card Reference: FUS-SSD-2×4-E3S is now available for purchase from partners worldwide at a price of US$200 and is compatible with macOS, Windows, and Linux.
PCI Express 3.0 SSD Card
The Sonnet M.2 2 x 4 low-end PCIe card enables users to install two M.2 NVMe 2280 PCIe SSD drives (sold separately) in virtually any expansion card space with an available x8 or x16 PCIe card slot; using state-of-the-art drives Today’s largest capacity solid state drives, up to 16 TB of storage can be installed. RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD configurations are supported, providing users with the flexibility to configure SSDs for optimal performance or data integrity, or both.”
“For users who need to add internal storage to their computers and need ultra-fast data transfer speeds for a smooth workflow — such as video editors working with 6K and higher-resolution snapshots — the NVMe M.2 SSD-based upgrade is ideal. Many computers do not include slots to support the installation of M.2 SSDs directly but do include PCIe expansion card slots.
With Sonnet’s M.2 2 x 4 Low Level PCIe Card installed, a user can install two SSD drives into a single PCIe slot—no cables, adapters, or installation trays required—for instant access media storage or as a high performance scratch disk. For users whose computers lack PCIe card slots—such as laptops, mini desktops, and all-in-one desktops—but do include Thunderbolt ports, install a Sonnet card into one of Sonnet’s multi-slot Sonnet card expansion systems to card expansion systems.
