Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card

Two U.2 NVMe SSD Connectors on a PCIe 3.0 x16 Card • Add Your Own U.2 SSDs

Add up to 32TB of Enterprise SSD Storage!

The Most Economical Way to Add Ultra-fast, Extra-large Capacity SSD Storage

Do you need more storage capacity for your computer? Is super high-speed throughput plus maximum IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) performance critical to your work? U.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs deliver both. Sonnet’s Fusion™ Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card enables you to upgrade your system in a flash, mounting two enterprise class U.2 SSDs with up to 32TB or greater capacity(1) in a single full-length x16 PCIe card slot, with no separate power or data cables, drive adapters, or mounting trays required.

Enterprise Class Performance & Capacities
Familiar Size and Shape, Different Connector and Interface
U.2 SSDs look like 2.5-inch SATA drives — they even share the same general dimensions and mounting screw hole placement, but their connectors are different, and so is their performance.
Unlike SATA drives, U.2 NVMe SSDs interface with your computer’s PCIe bus, enabling them to perform seven times as fast.
Striking Performance
How fast? Current PCIe 3.0 U.2 SSDs deliver sustained performance of up to 3500 MB/s read and 3500 MB/s write, or about 7x the performance of the fastest SATA SSDs.
High Capacities
Many U.2 SSDs are now available in capacities up to 16TB — perfect for storing large video projects—with higher capacity models on the horizon. Sonnet’s Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card will support bigger SSDs as they become available.

Fantastic RAID 0 Performance

Install the Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card with your SSDs into your system and configure the SSDs as a RAID 0 set for even greater storage performance.
Performance based on ATTO Disk Benchmark (available on the Apple® App Store ) test results with two Micron 9300 7.68TB NMVe drives with 64MB transfer size and macOS® 10.15.6 using SoftRAID software. See our Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card Performance PDF for additional benchmarks and details.

Sonnet Advantages – Full Performance Design

The Fusion Dual U.2 SSD PCIe Card is a full-height, full-length PCIe 3.0 card with an x16 (x8 electrical) interface, designed to support full performance from two U.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs.
The Sonnet card features:
PCIe Bridge

Devotes four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth to each SSD installed

Self-contained

Doesn’t require a specific motherboard to operate or specific SSDs to support RAID features — No PCIe bifurcation is required

Universal Compatibility

Mac®, Windows, and Linux compatible

Mounting Support for Two U.2 SSDs

Connect and mount directly to the card, no power or data cables, adapters, or mounting trays required
