[Techpowerup.com] ELSA Announces Thunderbolt PCI-Express Expansion Box
Run out of expansion slots in your system? Bulky graphics cards eating into smaller PCI-Express x1/x4 slots for devices such as PCIe SSDs, sound cards, and other expansion cards? ELSA has a solution for you, provided you have a Thunderbolt port to spare. The company announced the MAGMA ExpressBox 3T, an external add-on card enclosure, which talks to its host over Thunderbolt.
The MAGMA ExpressBox 3T encloses three standard expansion card bays, with two open-ended PCI-Express 2.0 x8 slots and a PCI-Express 2.0 x4. The three can be used for PCI-Express add-on cards of nearly every electrical configuration. The enclosure packs its own 250W power supply. It features two Thunderbolt ports, with which it can be a part of a larger Thunderbolt device daisy-chain, letting you conserve the limited number of Thunderbolt ports in your system. The enclosure is PC and Mac-compatible. Measuring 371 x 200 x 110 mm (WxDxH), the enclosure is made of aluminum panels with a steel frame. The company did not reveal pricing or availability information.
