Add up to 32TB of SSD Storage!

Ultra-speed Data Transfers
If you need to add internal storage to your computer and ultra high-speed data transfers are critical to your work, you need an NVMe SSD-based upgrade. Individually, M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs offer tremendous performance, but Sonnet’s M.2 4×4 PCIe Card enables you to mount up to four of them(1) into a single x16 card slot and combine their performance. No matter how you use it, this card can transform the way you work.

Mac Pro RAID 0 Performance

Install the M.2 4×4 PCIe card with your SSDs into your 2019 Mac Pro to achieve superior storage performance. If you’re one of the many still using 2010 or 2012 Mac Pro, install the Sonnet card plus SSDs to obtain performance you never thought possible!
Performance based on ATTO Disk Benchmark (available on the Apple® App Store) test results with Samsung® 970 EVO Plus 1TB SSDs with 64MB transfer size. See our M.2 4x4 Performance PDF for additional benchmarks and details.

Full Performance Design – Sonnet Advantages

Sonnet’s M.2 4×4 PCIe Card is a full-height, full-length PCIe 3.0 card with a 16-lane (x16) interface, designed to support full performance from four SSDs. Unlike “similar” adapter cards, Sonnet’s M.2 4×4 card features:
x16 PCIe Bridge

Devotes four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth to every SSD you install (instead of limiting the x4 bandwidth to two SSDs at a time)

Self-contained

Card doesn’t require a specific motherboard to operate or specific SSDs to support RAID features – no PCIe bifurcation required

Universal Compatibility

Mac®, Windows, and Linux compatible

M.2 PCIe SSD Support

Works with a wide variety of M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs; now also supports double-sided SSDs(6)
