Do you need more storage capacity for your computer? Is super high-speed throughput plus maximum IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) performance critical to your work? U.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs deliver both. Sonnet’s Fusion™ Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card enables you to upgrade your system in a flash, mounting two enterprise class U.2 SSDs with up to 32TB or greater capacity(1) in a single full-length x16 PCIe card slot, with no separate power or data cables, drive adapters, or mounting trays required.
Devotes four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth to each SSD installed
Doesn’t require a specific motherboard to operate or specific SSDs to support RAID features — No PCIe bifurcation is required
Mac®, Windows, and Linux compatible
Connect and mount directly to the card, no power or data cables, adapters, or mounting trays required
Mounts two U.2 NVMe SSDs (sold separately) in an x16 PCI slot.
PCI Express 3.0 x8 host bus interface is bridged to the SSDs, devoting four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth to each installed SSD.
Achieve sustained RAID 0 transfer speeds up to 6,250 MB/s(2).
Supports macOS, Windows, and Linux RAID 0 and 1 configurations.
Supports booting from a single (non-RAIDed) attached SSD.
Use in Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 expansion systems to connect two enterprise SSDs through one cable with performance up to 2750 MB/s.
No drivers required.
Supports S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting.
Mac Pro 5,1 users can install macOS on one SSD to create an incredibly fast boot drive and use the other installed SSD as a super-fast media storage or scratch drive. The Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card makes it possible.
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe card slot? Sonnet’s Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card is ideal for use in one of our Thunderbolt 3 expansion systems that accept full-length PCIe cards. The combo enables you to add two U.2 NVMe SSDs to any Mac computer with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt 3 ports, or Windows or Linux computer with Thunderbolt 3 ports.
NVMe compliance ensures that integrating a Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card into your system is easy—the necessary drivers are installed automatically. The Fusion card uses your computer’s built-in drive formatting utilities to format the SSDs. SSD health monitoring is supported through S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting, too.
