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.”
