Get more speed with a Supermicro Thunderbolt PCIe adapter

Thunderbolt™ is the fastest and most versatile way to transfer data to and from a PC. Developed by Intel in collaboration with Apple, Thunderbolt provides a single connection that can accommodate data, video, audio, and power while enabling high-speed connection for hard drives, RAID arrays, network interfaces, and high-definition video.

When you want to add the power of Thunderbolt technology to your Supermicro computer, a Supermicro Thunderbolt PCIe adapter from Thinkmate provides a fast and affordable solution.

What is Supermicro Thunderbolt?

Initially introduced in 2009, Thunderbolt technology has evolved to become one of the most powerful and most used hardware interfaces for workstations, laptops, mobile devices, and peripherals.

With transfer speeds up to 20 Gbps, Thunderbolt enables a high-definition movie to be transferred in less than 30 seconds, for a year's worth of continuous MP3 playback to be backed up in a little more than 10 minutes, and for movies, TV shows, music and photos to be synced and backed up at blazingly fast speeds. Additionally, Thunderbolt supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single compact port, and expands computing capability by enabling a simple daisy chain connection for up to six devices.

Supermicro is a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology, and innovation. Deep relationships with leading semiconductor manufacturers ensure that Supermicro products are built with cutting-edge technology to meet the demands of tomorrow's data-driven business world.

The Supermicro Thunderbolt PCIe adapter enables organizations and users to take advantage of Thunderbolt in new or existing Supermicro workstations. The Supermicro Thunderbolt add-on card plugs into a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot, quickly and easily adding the speed of Thunderbolt to a Supermicro device.
