Akitio releases Thunder3 PCIe box

Akitio has released Akitio Thunder3 PCIe Box designed to provide an additional PCIe slot for Thunderbolt 3 computers where there is either not enough space to install another PCIe card or on systems such as laptops where there was no option to add a PCIe card, the company said.

The Akitio PCIe Box features a 1×16 slot that supports half-length, full-height, double-width cards, which can easily be swapped out due to the screw-less design of the Akitio box. The four PCIe Gen3 lanes and the Thunderbolt 3 interface are capable of transfer rates up to 40Gbps (Gigabits per second),

Akitio is an international company specializing in the design, development and manufacturing of external computer storage products and accessories with an emphasis on Thunderbolt technology.
