Overview

 

Add Two Powerful 10Gbps USB-C (USB 3.1 Gen 2) Connections to Your Mac Pro Tower, Windows PC, Linux Computer, or Thunderbolt to PCIe Card Expansion System

When it comes to supporting the fastest USB drives available, your computer’s USB 3.0 ports are perfectly adequate… for connecting peripherals that don’t depend on the ultimate USB 3.1 speeds. However, common USB 3.0 ports can be underachievers—at 5Gbps, they can’t support the maximum performance from many storage devices, and may not provide enough power to enable them to operate. You need SuperSpeed+ USB. You need Sonnet’s Allegro USB-C PCIe card.

 

Allegro USB-C PCIe: Up to Twice as Fast as USB 3.0 Cards

The Allegro USB-C PCIe supports data transfers at up to twice as fast as USB 3.0, and can also deliver 15W of power per port to USB-C bus-powered devices. 

Sonnet's Allegro USB-C PCIe computer card supports data transfers up to 960 MB/s when connected to a USB-C Gen 2 SSD RAID device—transfers complete in half the time compared with using a USB 3.0 2.5-inch SSD! Sonnet specially engineered the Allegro USB-C card to provide 15W of power through each of its ports. The ports communicate with the host that 3A of VBUS current is available, enabling this Sonnet solution to support USB-C bus-powered SSDs and SSD RAID devices that need 15W during demanding write operations. 

Sonnet’s Allegro USB-C is unique in regulating power to each port independently, giving each one protection from power glitches on the adjacent port. Without this protection (such as found on an ordinary card), connects and disconnects of one device may cause auto-disconnects of the other.
