It is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, which support DisplayPort, USB 3.1 Gen 2, and PCIe protocols, plus daisy chaining for up to six devices, as well as two SFF-8644 mini-SAS ports, each of which supports four devices at speeds up to 12 Gb/s SAS-3. All in all, this adapter lets you connect SAS and SATA devices, including storage and LTO 8 tape drives, to your Windows or Mac system running Thunderbolt 3.
