Sonnet to launch McFiver PCIe expansion card

Sonnet announced that it will launch a multi-function expansion card called McFiver PCIe Card. It features one 10GbE port, two USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C ports, and two M.2 SSD slots. An expansion card installed in a PCIe 3.0/4.0 x8 slot can meet various needs of users, especially content creators.

This versatile expansion card from Sonnet comes in a standard full-height single-slot form factor and looks very similar to previous entry-level graphics cards at first glance. McFiver PCIe Card is compatible with macOS, Windows, and Linux. Users can also choose to install in a system with a Thunderbolt-to-PCIe expansion card with a PCIe x16 slot (this method is not supported for Windows 11 for the time being), compatible with Macs and PCs equipped with Thunderbolt ports.

The McFiver PCIe Card is equipped with two USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C ports with a rate of 10Gbps, each port has full bandwidth and has independent port power regulation. 10GbE ports can connect computers to 10GbE network facilities up to 100 meters away via less expensive copper cables.

McFiver PCIe Card provides dual M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD slots, which can support up to 16TB of storage expansion, which enables users to quickly save and access data, easily store large files and media libraries, and achieve sequential read/write speeds of up to 3400 MB/s. If users need ultra-high-speed data transfer, they can also use two SSDs to build RAID 0 to achieve sequential read/write speeds of up to 6600 MB/s. The expansion card is equipped with a large-area heat sink, which can keep the SSD stable during long data transfers.

It is understood that the McFiver PCIe Card will probably be available in mid-June, with a suggested retail price of $399.99.
