The JMR Mac Pro PCIe to Thunderbolt 2 Desktop Enclosure houses your Apple Mac Pro (late 2013) to enhance it with four PCIe slots. To deliver this feature, the enclosure comes with two independent Thunderbolt 2 bridge circuits that drive the four PCIe slots with 20 Gb/s of bandwidth. Your Mac Pro connects to these PCIe slots by utilizing two of its three available Thunderbolt 2 circuits. This JMR desktop enclosure supports full-height, full-length PCIe cards, and each of the PCIe slots operates mechanically at x16 and electrically at x4. You can use the four PCIe slots to add Fiber-channel adapters, RAID controller cards, 10GbE networking cards, video capture cards, audio interface cards, dedicated graphics cards, RED Rocket-X cards, and more for your Apple Mac Pro.
Once installed within the enclosure, the Mac Pro's on/off power button and I/O ports are controlled via a pass-through design. JMR has outfitted this enclosure with an I/O panel that can be mounted to the front or back of the case. This panel features two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port, one Gigabit Ethernet port, one mic port, and one headphone port. Aside from these ports, four 20 Gbps Thunderbolt 2 ports are available, so you may daisy-chain other Thunderbolt devices to your Apple Mac Pro.
The JMR desktop enclosure sports a forced-air cooling solution that keeps your Mac and PCIe cards running smoothly. For powering the enclosure and PCIe cards, a 460W power supply is on board. Furthermore, the desktop enclosure can be rack mounted with an optional bracket kit, occupying 4 RU of cabinet space.
