Please note that boot functionality is only supported on macOS when the SSDs are not configured as a RAID.

Compatibility

Performance Oriented

Sonnet's M.2 4x4 PCIe card is a full-height, full-length PCIe 3.0 card with a 16-lane (x16) interface. Featuring a Sonnet-designed PCIe x16 bridge, the card devotes four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth to each SSD you install. When installed in a Windows PC's PCIe 3.0 slot with four SSDs formatted in a RAID 0 configuration, the card is capable of transfer speeds up to 8500 MB/s, and aggregate transfer speeds from four non-RAIDed SSDs of up to 12,000 MB/s are possible.

Thunderbolt Port? Connect Four SSDs Through One Cable

Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe card slot? Sonnet's M.2 4x4 PCIe card is ideal for use in one of their Echo Express III-D, III-R, or xMac Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion systems. The combo enables you to add up to four SSDs to Macs with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt 3 ports, or a Windows PC with Thunderbolt 3 ports.

Simple and S.M.A.R.T.

Integrating a Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe card into your system is easy - just insert it into a PCIe x16 slot then start your computer, and NVMe compliance ensures the necessary drivers are installed automatically. Compatible with macOS 10.14.4+ and Windows 10, the Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe uses the operating system's built-in drive formatting utilities to format the SSDs. Drive health monitoring is supported through S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting.
