Overview

The fastest SSD-based USB 3.1 Gen 2 drives now available can transfer data at 800 MB/s—many are bus-powered, too. But, most desktop computers (including many new models) feature old-generation USB interfaces that can’t support that performance, and may not provide enough power to enable those bus-powered drives to function. Break through the bottleneck—install Sonnet’s Allegro™ Pro USB 3.1 PCIe card in your Mac Pro® tower, Windows® PC, or Linux(1) computer with PCIe slots; or Thunderbolt™ to PCIe card expansion system to support your fast USB drives at maximum performance.

Key Features

SuperSpeed+ 10Gbps USB Ports—Adds four 10Gbps USB-A ports to your Mac Pro, Windows PC, or Linux(1) computer with PCIe slots; or Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion system

Dual USB 3.1 Gen 2 Controllers—Support data transfers at up to twice as fast as USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 1, and boost data transfer speeds between connected drives

Powered Ports—Supports USB bus-powered SSD, SSD RAID, and hard drive devices with up to 7.5W power per port

Supports Charge & Sync—Supports USB 3.0 charging port handshake, and will simultaneously sync and charge iPads and other devices that support USB 3.0 charging at 1.5A per device

Protected Power Delivery—Independent power regulation isolates each port to prevent cross-coupled power glitches that may cause accidental disconnects; resettable device overcurrent fuses protect the card and computer, and may be reset by a simple shutdown

Optimized for Thunderbolt—Provides maximum performance over Thunderbolt

Easy Installation—Quick and easy user installation into any available PCIe slot

Broad USB Device Support & Compatibility—Supports storage, hubs, and other USB-IF compliant USB devices


Two Gen 2 Controllers, Four USB-A Ports

Featuring two 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 controllers and four USB-A ports, the Allegro Pro USB 3.1 PCIe card supports the fastest USB drives available, yet provides the most common connection type for peripheral devices.

The Speed and Power

Connected to a single USB 3.1 Gen 2 SSD RAID device, Sonnet’s Allegro Pro USB 3.1 PCIe card supports data transfers up to 800 MB/s—transfers complete in half the time(2) compared with using a USB 3.1 Gen 1 or USB 3.0 adapter card! Made possible through the use of dual controllers, with two connected drives, each port supports simultaneous 660 MB/s transfers. With four drives connected, each port supports simultaneous 300 MB/s transfers!

No Auxiliary Power Needed

Ordinary USB-A cards require the connection of a separate power connector. The Allegro Pro draws the power it needs from the slot it’s installed in to power connected drives, enabling you to install the card in any compatible computer or Thunderbolt expansion chassis that doesn’t have these power connectors available.

Independent Power Regulation for Each Port

Ordinary USB-A cards can provide poor power regulation through their ports. The Allegro Pro card protects each port from power glitches on adjacent ports—such as when a hard drive spins up after connection—preventing auto-disconnects of already-connected drives.

Resettable Fuses

Unlike ordinary USB-A cards, the Allegro Pro features a resettable fuse on each port to protect the card and your computer should a cable or peripheral fail. Resetting a tripped fuse is simple— just shut down and restart your computer.
