Sonnet To Showcase New eGFX Breakaway™ Box 650 At IBC

News Image
Sonnet Technologies is to demonstrate its new, award winning eGFX Breakaway™ Box 650 at the upcoming IBC Show in Amsterdam, 13-18 September.

Other external graphics solutions, ethernet adapters, flash drives and pro card readers will all be on display at Sonnet's stand (7.D25).

Thunderbolt™ 3 External Graphics (eGPU) Solutions
At IBC2018, Sonnet will showcase the eGFX Breakaway™ Box 650, a Thunderbolt™ 3 to GPU card expansion system designed and qualified specifically for large, power-hungry graphics (GPU) cards, including the AMD Radeon™ RX Vega 64, Radeon Pro WX 9100, 9100 SSG and overclocked NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 10 series-based cards. The 650 model enables the use of all GPU cards that support connecting to a computer over Thunderbolt — such as AMD Radeon R9, RX, RX Vega, and Pro WX models and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 9 and 10 series, Titan X and Xp, and Quadro® models — with Thunderbolt 3-equipped computers, providing GPU support for computationally intensive applications and games. Mac®- and Windows®-compatible, the new Sonnet system is a cool and quiet eGFX box, with a built-in, variable-speed, temperature-controlled fan that quietly and effectively cools the installed card.

Sonnet will also display two new external graphics solutions, the eGFX Breakaway Puck Radeon RX 560 and eGFX Breakaway Puck Radeon RX 570. These integrated Thunderbolt 3 external graphics processing unit (eGPU) systems are highly portable and offer users improved graphics performance when used with thin and light laptops.

Solo10G™ 10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapters
Sonnet will showcase its new Solo10G™ Thunderbolt™ 3 Edition adapter and Solo10G PCIe® Card, the latest products in the company's expanding line of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) solutions. The Solo10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition adds lightning-fast 10GbE network connectivity to any Mac® or Windows® computer with a Thunderbolt 3 port, enabling users to easily connect their computers via copper cables to high-speed network infrastructure and storage systems using the 10GbE standard. Its performance, diminutive size, simple setup, and silent operation make this Sonnet adapter ideal for use in a variety of workflows and environments. The Solo10G PCIe Card adds 10GbE network connectivity to any Mac®, Windows®, or Linux® computer with PCI Express® (PCIe) slots.

Thunderbolt™ 3 Editions in Echo™ Express Family

Sonnet will showcase new Thunderbolt™ 3 editions of its award-winning Echo™ Express Thunderbolt-to-PCI Express® (PCIe®) card expansion systems. Sonnet's top-of-the-line Echo™ Express III-D (desktop) and Echo Express III-R (2U rackmount) systems support the installation of up to three full-length, full-height PCIe cards, and connect them to the computer through a single cable. With the latest interface, both systems enable users of Mac® and Windows® computers equipped with 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3's 2,750 MB/s of PCIe bandwidth to support demanding, high-performance adapter cards. Both systems feature a built-in, universal 300-watt power supply with a 75-watt auxiliary power connector for installed cards, plus two large, ultra-quiet, temperature-controlled cooling fans to enable their use in noise-sensitive environments.

1TB And 2TB Fusion™ Thunderbolt™ 3 PCIe® Flash Drives 
Complementing its popular 1TB model, Sonnet will showcase the new 2TB Fusion™ Thunderbolt™ 3 PCIe® Flash Drive. The rugged, pocket-sized, solid-state drive (SSD) storage device features NVMe flash storage and leverages the 40Gbps bandwidth of its Thunderbolt 3 interface to deliver data transfer speeds up to 2,600 MB/s. Designed for pro users requiring ultimate performance in a truly portable storage device, the Fusion Flash Drive is bus-powered and features a rugged aluminium enclosure that effectively cools the SSD and eliminates the need for a fan, enabling silent operation. The Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive connects to any compatible Mac® or Windows® computer with its 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable.

SF3™ Series Pro Card Readers
Sonnet will show its line of SF3™ Series dual-slot Thunderbolt™ 3 pro media readers. Each SF3 Series reader features a compact, rugged aluminium enclosure designed for stacking multiple readers. The SF3 Series — CFast™ 2.0 Pro Card Reader is bus-powered with no power adapter required, and can ingest files from two cards at concurrent data transfer speeds up to 1,000 MB/s. The SF3 Series — SxS™ Pro Card Reader features dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, can support a bus-powered device (such as the CFast 2.0 reader), and can simultaneously ingest files from two SxS cards at their maximum supported data transfer speeds.

Sonnet will also preview the newest member of the family, the SF3 Series — Sonnet RED MINI-MAG® Card Reader. Featuring dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, the reader can support a bus-powered device (such as the CFast 2.0 reader), and can simultaneously ingest files from two RED MINI-MAG cards at their maximum supported data transfer speeds.

Sonnet's range of solutions will be at stand 7.D25 at IBC2018 in Amsterdam, 13-18 September.
