Devotes four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth to every SSD you install (instead of limiting the x4 bandwidth to two SSDs at a time)
Card doesn’t require a specific motherboard to operate or specific SSDs to support RAID features
Mac, Windows, and Linux compatible
Works with a wide variety of M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs
Mounts up to four M.2 NVMe SSDs (sold separately) in an x16 PCIe slot.
PCI Express 3.0 x16 host bus interface plus x16 PCIe bridge; four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth devoted to each installed SSD.
Achieve sustained RAID 0 speeds up to 11,700 MB/s.(3)
Supports macOS, Windows, and Linux RAID 0, 1, and 5 (macOS RAID 5 support requires SoftRAID software, sold separately).
Supports booting from a single (non-RAIDed) SSD.
Custom cooling solution enables installed SSDs to maintain high performance during very large file transfers.
Use in Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 expansion systems to connect up to four SSDs through one cable with performance up to 2750 MB/s.
Typically no drivers required.(4)
Supports S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting.
Are you an Adobe® After Effects user? Imagine being able to perform 4Kp60 work in 32-bit linear, or even 4Kp24 with high channel count EXRs (or effects in 8K) where onboard storage couldn’t keep up! Sonnet's M.2 4x4 PCIe Card makes it possible.
Mac Pro 5,1 users can install macOS® on one SSD to create an incredibly fast boot drive(2) and create a RAID 0 set with the other installed SSDs and still obtain blazing-fast performance. Sonnet's M.2 4x4 PCIe Card makes it possible.
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe card slot? Sonnet’s M.2 4x4 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 up to four SSDs to any Mac computer with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt 3 ports, or Windows or Linux computer with Thunderbolt 3 ports.(5)
Integrating a Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe Card into your system is easy—NVMe compliance ensures the necessary drivers(4) are installed automatically. The M.2 4x4 uses the operating systems’ 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.
