Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Upgrade Card for Echo Express SE II

Thunderbolt 3 upgrade card for the Echo Express SE II
MFR# BRD-UPGRTB3-SE2

Product Description

Sonnet designed the Echo Express SE II Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe card expansion system to be easily upgraded to 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3. Simply replace the existing Thunderbolt interface board with the Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 Upgrade Card, and your chassis will instantly support higher performance, and connect to your Thunderbolt 3-equipped computer without the need for an adapter.

Increased Bandwidth, Better Performance

With a Thunderbolt 3 interface card installed, your upgraded Sonnet Thunderbolt 2 system gains from 30% to 100% more bandwidth for the installed PCIe cards over the original system (see performance Tab for details). Installed in an upgraded system, PCIe cards with high bandwidth requirements, such as 16Gb Fibre Channel and 4K Video I/O cards supporting high frame rates, will be able to perform even better than before.

Connect USB Devices, or Displays

Sonnet's Thunderbolt 3 upgrade cards also provide 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 support, meaning you can connect a USB device to the second port using the proper cable or adapter(5); they also provide full support for connecting two 4K displays @ 60 Hz or one 5K display @60 Hz.

Connect a USB device to the second Thunderbolt 3 port on your upgraded system with a USB-C to USB-A adapter or cable (sold separately)

ThunderLok 3-Compatible

Sonnet’s Thunderbolt 3 upgrade cards support the ThunderLok 3 Thunderbolt connector retainer clip. The ThunderLok 3 (included with xMac mini Server kit; otherwise sold separately) secures the Thunderbolt cable (included with xMac mini Server Kit; otherwise sold separately) to the chassis(7), and is easy to install and use—just slide it over one end of the cable, and then plug in the connector and secure it to the chassis by turning a thumbscrew. Because of its unique design, ThunderLok 3 remains on the cable so it won’t get lost when not in use.

Features:

  • Easy to Install 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 Upgrade Card –
  • Replaces Existing 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 Interface Board
  • Improves Performance with High-Bandwidth PCIe Cards –
  • Provides 100% More Bandwidth (Up to 2750 MB/s)

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
