Technical Notes

  • As of 09/2020, the current maximum capacity of most U.2 SSDs is 16TB. This product will support higher-capacity SSDs as they become available.
  • This product’s performance will vary based on the type and number of SSDs used, the CPU speed, and the PCIe architecture.
  • Performance in a Thunderbolt 3 PCIe expansion chassis limited by maximum Thunderbolt 3 PCIe bandwidth of 2750 MB/s. PCIe bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2 is about half of Thunderbolt 3.
