Sonnet has announced the Fusion™ Dual U.2 SSD PCIe® Card.
It is a PCI Express® 3.0 adapter card with direct mounting support for two U.2 NVMe PCIe® SSDs.
This card is ideal for the new 2019 Mac Pro or desktop to access fast storage in large capacities utilising U.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 3 SSDs.
Data Transfers up to 3,500 MB/s
With cameras producing greater resolution footage, higher speed data transfers are required for a smooth workflow. Mainstream U.2 SSDs are currently available in capacities up to 16TB and support data transfers at up to 3,500 MB/s. With two SSDs installed on the Sonnet card and configured as a RAID 0 set, sustained data transfers up to 6,250 MB/s are possible.
The Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card offers an economical way to add ultra-fast, extra-large-capacity storage to their computers.
According to Sonnet, the Fusion card plus two 3.84TB U.2 SSDs configured in a RAID 0 set deliver up to 184% the performance of the factory-installed 8TB storage option, but at a nearly 32% lower cost per terabyte. Purchasing larger U.2 SSDs, Mac Pro users can install up to four times as much (or greater) capacity as offered by Apple®.
