Details

Sonnet Tempo SSD is a fast 6Gb/s SATA PCI Express adapter card that enables you to attach readily available 2.5" SSDs and install the assembly neatly into a single PCIe slot, no cables or drivers necessary.

Unlike other PCI Express SSD cards that rely on proprietary, premium priced SSD modules, Tempo SSD uses standard 2.5" SATA drives that you choose. You get to select from the widest variety of SSDs, and buy the ones that best suit your capacity and performance needs while working within your budget. Because 2.5" SSDs are readily available, you’re not tied to one retailer or SSD manufacturer should you decide to upgrade to higher capacity, faster SSDs.

It features a unique modular design that grows with your needs. It’s small enough to fit in most spaces, perfect for installing a single SSD into your system.

Key Features

  • Adds Fast SSDs to Your System: Mounts one or two high-performance 6 Gb/s SSDs (sold separately) in your Mac Pro's, desktop PC's, or Thunderbolt expansion chassis' PCIe slot

  • High-Performance PCIe Interface: PCI Express 2.0 x2 host bus interface for high-performance applications

  • Great Performance: Data transfers speeds up to 660 MB/sec(1)

  • Unique Modular Design: Enables installation of a single SSD in half length card spaces, two SSDs in full length card space when extension plate is attached to the card

  • Optimized for Maximum Performance Over Thunderbolt: Perfect for use in Sonnet's Echo Express and xMac mini Server Thunderbolt expansion products

  • RAID Support: Supports OS X and Windows RAID features

  • Boot Support: Supports booting from attached drives under OS X or Windows 7 and 8 (see Tech Specs for details).
