Sonnet Announces Professional Modular Thunderbolt™ Expansion Systems for the Desktop and for Rack Installation
Mix and Match Expansion Modules and Enclosures Offer Flexible Configuration and Enable Convenient Workflows
What They Do:
DuoModo eGPU Module: This module supports up to full-length, full-height, 2.5 slot-width GPU cards, and it utilizes dual temperature-controlled, variable-speed Noctua fans that provide efficient and ultra-quiet cooling for the installed card. Sonnet designed this new expansion module with the goal of offering users a future-proof purchase, equipping it with an 800W power supply capable of supporting the most power-hungry GPU cards available.
DuoModo xMac™ mini Module: This module securely holds an Intel® or M1 Mac mini computer to enable mounting it in a desktop or rackmount enclosure — and provides open access to its rear ports. The module’s built-in Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) storage dock provides users with four front panel connections consisting of three 10Gbps USB ports (two Type-C ports and one Type A port, each capable of powering bus-powered devices), and one Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) port. An internal USB Type A port is provided for connection of a software license dongle, such as an iLok USB-A, or a thumb drive. The dock also incorporates two M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD sockets to enable users to add up to 16TB of fast storage to their systems.
DuoModo Dual-module Desktop and Rackmount Enclosures: Holding any two of the DuoModo modules, the desktop enclosure measures 6.9 inches wide by 16.7 inches deep by 9.1 inches tall. The dual-module 2U rackmount enclosure — the same one used in the Echo III Rackmount system — measures 19 inches wide by 16.5 inches deep by 3.5 inches tall.
DuoModo Single-module Desktop Enclosure: This housing — the same one used in the Echo III Desktop system — measures 3.5 inches wide by 16.7 inches deep by 9 inches tall and holds any one of the DuoModo modules.
DuoModo Preconfigured Systems: Four systems are available. Each includes an xMac mini Module plus either an Echo III Module or an eGPU Module, and a dual-module desktop or rackmount enclosure.
