Sonnet Releases SSD Drive Card

Up to 512 GB of storage with 1,100 MBps performance

Computer equipment maker Sonnet Technologies has something the geekiest of computer geeks would like under their Christmas tree — a 512 GB solid-state drive card, the Tempo PCIe SSD card.

Built into a PCI Express 2.0 card, the Tempo offers 512 GB of storage with a performance spec of up to 1,100 MBps. According to Sonnet, the Tempo should even outperform SATA SSD drives.

It is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.8.5+ (including Yosemite) or Windows 8 and 7 and Windows Server 2012 and 2008 systems and can operate as peripheral storage or as a boot drive.

Sonnet Technologies CEO Robert Farnsworth said, “The Tempo PCIe SSD boasts performance once exclusive to multidrive storage systems with eight or more hard disk drives plus a high-end RAID controller card … Through its wide compatibility and ultra-high performance, our Tempo PCIe SSD provides convenient internal storage expansion through any available PCIe slot.”

Price: $799
