Thunderbolt™ 3 to 3 PCIe Expansion Enclosure

Overview

The Expansion that Brings the Most Possibility

Creativity is not limited by your host computer. Since truly understanding professional video editors' application needs in the production field which generally requires multiple pro video/audio cards for varied development, this day three PCIe slots have been created for the proficient video producers and audio developers to utilize up to 3 specialty PCIe cards for their creative works. Now pro cards such as Red Rocket-X (graphics accelerator), Blackmagic DeckLink (video capture) and Avid Pro Tools (audio) can all work together in the same box for both studio and mobile on-site editing purposes to efficiently and smoothly accomplish your workflows.

Integrated High Speed PCIe Gen3 Switch

An ultra fast, high tech PCIe Gen3 switch has been thoughtfully built on the PCIe slots backplane to allow each PCIe 3.0 slot within expansion chassis to be kept at highest, full performance and achievements.

40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 Host Interface

Designed to feature Thunderbolt™ 3 interface (40Gb/s) capable of providing PCIe bandwidth up to 2750 MB/s, 2x times Thunderbolt 2, for diverse professional PCIe cards like video transcoding and video capture that mainly require higher throughput of data rate to the host computer.

Thunderbolt™ 3 40 Gbps
Thunderbolt™ 2 20 Gbps
Thunderbolt™ 1 10 Gbps
USB3.1 Gen2 10 Gbps
USB3.1 Gen1 5 Gbps

Dual Thunderbolt 3 Ports - The USB C That Does It All

By the two Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C) ports, users can have the first port to computer while the second port to daisy-chain of up to five additional Thunderbolt peripheral devices with two 4K displays or one 5K display being positioned at the very end of the chain. USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) is also supported: connecting one USB device to the second port for application is available.

Convenient Adjustable Fan Speeds

Carrying one front hot-swappable 8x8 cm ultra quiet cooling fan module, which provides most excellent airflow ventilation ever and ensures PCIe cards within can run long term without any high temp concern. Additionally, the fan speed of the cooling fan can be adjusted manually according to PCIe cards implementation situation within enclosure.

 

Mac certified. Works with All Series of Thunderbolt Mac

The Thunderbolt™ 3 NA211TB3 PCIe expansion chassis has passed Apple's strict certification testing process and is Mac certified, which supports and works with all series of Thunderbolt Mac.
