  • Product Description

    The new Mac Pro has become the object of desire, but a lustrous finish hides its true beauty: the massive power within. If you're a pro user in the video or audio industries, the Mac Pro offers the power you need, but lacks the built-in expandability you count on. In order to achieve this engineering feat, Apple designers stripped away components and space to a minimum, taking out PCIe slots and drive bays, and packed the remaining components into a small cylinder. Its compact size makes the new Mac Pro more transportable and rackable, but prevents onboard installation of PCIe expansion cards. In addition, the computer still requires an enclosure to make it road- or rack-ready and provide convenient cable management. The Sonnet xMac Pro Server Expansion System - Thunderbolt 2 4U addresses these issues - increasing a Mac Pro's potential in a big way.



    • Provides PCIe Card Expansion for Mac Pro: Use high-performance PCIe cards with your new Mac Pro
    • Makes Your Mac Pro Road-Ready: 4U rackmount enclosure securely holds the computer and PCIe cards in place, adding mobility to your Mac
    • Three PCIe Slots: Supports three full-length, full-height, single-width cards, or one double-width card plus one single-width card
    • Thunderbolt 2 Interface: Maximum performance with Mac Pro, backward compatible with devices equipped with 10Gbps Thunderbolt technology
    • Power for High Performance PCIe Cards: Integrated 300W power supply provides plenty of power for any cards you install; 75W auxiliary PCIe power connector enables use of power hungry cards such as the Avid Pro Tools|HDX or the RED ROCKET-X
    • Provides Space for Installing Additional Devices: Using optional Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kits, you can install HDDs, SSDs, a tape or optical drive, and more inside the xMac Pro Server's enclosure
    • Remarkably Quiet: Temperature-controlled, variable-speed fans automatically and quietly cool the cards
    • Front Panel Operation, Rear Panel Connectivity: Front panel power button activates power switch on Mac Pro; USB 3.0 port enables connection of keyboard, mouse, thumb drive, etc.; two Gigabit Ethernet, three USB 3.0, and HDMI ports are mounted at the rear of the chassis for easy connectivity
    • Energy Efficient: Variable-speed fans automatically adjust to the unique needs of each configuration, and the auto power on/off feature ensures there is no energy wasted with cards powered on when the Mac Pro is sleeping or off
    • Supports Thunderbolt Expansion: Enables daisy chain connection of additional Thunderbolt technology devices when other Mac Pro Thunderbolt ports are in use
    • Every Thunderbolt-Compatible Card Supported: Works with every Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe card, regardless of length or height
    • 5-year Manufacturer Warranty
