Looking to add fast internal storage to your computer? Got a spare card slot in your Thunderbolt 2 to PCIe expansion chassis and need high performance storage expansion? If maximum speed is critical to your work, hard disk drives are not what you’re looking for—you need an SSD-based upgrade. Today’s SSDs offer tremendous performance and easily outperform (and are more reliable than) traditional hard disk drives. Sonnet’s latest PCIe SSD solution, the Sonnet Tempo PCIe SSD PCI Express SSP Card is their fastest, smallest SSD-on-a–card ever, and it can transform the way you work.
With the Sonnet Tempo PCIe SSD card installed in your Mac Pro® tower or Thunderbolt™-to-PCIe card expansion system, you can easily install OS X® on the SSD and create an incredibly fast boot drive. In a Windows® PC or Mac®-based system, you can use it for instant access media storage or as a high-performance scratch disk. However it is used, this card’s performance will impress you.
Tempo PCIe SSD is a low-profile PCIe card with an attached M.2 PCIe SSD providing 512GB of storage. Its small form factor allows this card to be installed into any x4 mechanical or larger PCIe slot; full-height and low-profile card brackets are included. Capable of transferring files at a blistering 1100 MB/sec, this Sonnet SSD solution boasts performance once exclusive to multi-drive storage systems with eight or more hard drives plus a high-end RAID controller card!
This Sonnet SSD solution is able to attain this performance and break speed records set by 6Gb/s SATA SSDs by incorporating a direct PCIe flash controller. This enables the card to achieve greater performance from a single “drive” than cards using two 2.5" form factor SSDs along with a SATA controller and SATA-to-PCIe bridge.
