Sonnet Announces PCI Express® 4.0 Adapter Card

News Image
Sonnet Technologies has announced the Sonnet M.2 8x4 Silent Gen4 PCIe® Card, the latest offering in the company's popular family of high-performance storage adapter cards that enable the installation of multiple SSDs into a computer PCIe card slot.

The full-height, full-length, single-width x16 PCIe 4.0 card features eight NVMe M.2 SSD slots that support the installation of Gen4 (and Gen3) PCIe SSDs.

The Sonnet M.2 8x4 Silent Gen4 PCIe Card enables users to mount eight M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs (sold separately) into a single x16 PCIe card slot; using today's highest-capacity SSDs, up to 64TB of storage capacity may be installed. Operating system RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and JBOD configurations are supported, providing users with flexibility in configuring the SSDs for the best performance or data safety, or both.

For users who require ultra-high-speed data transfer speeds for a smooth workflow and need added storage capacity for their computer — such as video editors working with 6K and greater resolution footage — an NVMe M.2 SSD-based upgrade is essential. Many computers do not include slots to support installing M.2 SSDs directly but do include PCIe expansion card slots. Other computers — such as the new Apple® Mac Pro® with Apple silicon — use proprietary SSDs, limiting the maximum storage capacity natively supported. With the Sonnet M.2 8x4 Silent Gen4 PCIe Card installed, a user can mount up to eight high-capacity SSDs in a single PCIe card slot for instant-access media storage or for use as an incredibly fast scratch disk.

Compatible with macOS®, Windows®, and Linux®, the Sonnet M.2 8x4 Silent Gen4 PCIe Card features a high-performance 48-lane PCIe 4.0 switch that provides 16 lanes of PCIe bandwidth to installed SSDs, ensuring the best simultaneous performance possible from four to eight SSDs. As a result, when installed in a new Mac Pro — which is equipped with PCIe 4.0 card slots — the Sonnet card can support sustained transfer speeds of up to 30,000 MB/s read and 25,000 MB/s write, respectively, with four or more SSDs formatted as a RAID 0 volume. To support their sustained high performance — most importantly during large file transfers — the card's passive heatsink effectively prevents thermal throttling, enabling SSDs to maintain sustained peak performance without relying on fans that can get loud. (Thermal throttling is an SSD protection feature that prevents them from overheating by choking their performance until they cool down.)

The Sonnet M.2 8x4 Silent Gen4 PCIe Card supports a broad array of Gen4 (and Gen3) NVMe SSDs (visit the Sonnet website for a list of compatible M.2 SSDs). The card does not require a computer that supports PCIe bifurcation.
