The 1-Port Thunderbolt 2 PCIe I/O Card from HP is a high-speed serial interface that enables data transfer from external peripherals such as external hard disks, digital cameras and video cameras. With nearly four times the transfer rate of USB 3.0, it features one external Thunderbolt output port, one DisplayPort input, and one internal header. Thunderbolt 2 technology is a high-speed, dual protocol I/O that provides unmatched performance over current I/O technologies with 20 Gb/s bi-directional transfer speeds. It provides flexibility and simplicity by supporting both data (PCIe) and video (DisplayPort) on a single cable connection that can daisy chain up to six devices.
The PCIe card is backwards compatible to allow Thunderbolt devices to operate, with no cable adapters needed. Thunderbolt technology increases data transfer rate enabling faster backup, editing, and file sharing, significantly reducing the time to complete key tasks. The Thunderbolt technology was specifically designed with inherently low latency and highly accurate time synchronization capabilities. These features enable accurate audio and video creation, playback and editing. The PCIe card is compatible with the HP Z820, Z620, and Z420 workstations.
Note: It requires a DisplayPort input to enable downstream DisplayPort devices on the Thunderbolt daisy chain. The card is offered as a Certified System Solution with the compatible workstation platforms and select graphics cards only, which includes nVidia K2000, K4000, and K5000.
