Sonnet Technologies at IBC 2018

Look for new storage and GPU solutions in the Sonnet booth at IBC 2018.

Sonnet will showcase the new eGFX Breakaway Box 650, a Thunderbolt 3 to GPU card expansion system designed and qualified specifically for large, power-hungry graphics (GPU) cards, including the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, Radeon Pro WX 9100, 9100 SSG and overclocked NVIDIA  GeForce  GTX 10 series-based cards. The 650 model enables the use of all GPU cards that support connecting to a computer over Thunderbolt 3, providing GPU support for computationally intensive applications.

Also on display are two new external graphics solutions, the eGFX Breakaway Puck Radeon RX 560 and eGFX Breakaway Puck Radeon RX 570. These integrated and portable Thunderbolt 3 external graphics processing units (eGPU) offer users tremendously improved graphics performance when used with thin and light laptops.

On stand will be the new Solo10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition adapter and Solo10G PCIe Card, the latest products in the company's expanding line of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) solutions. The Solo10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition adds lightning-fast 10GbE network connectivity to any Mac or Windows computer with a Thunderbolt 3 port, enabling users to easily connect their computers via copper cables to high-speed network infrastructure and storage systems using the 10GbE standard.

Sonnet-Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive

Complementing its popular 1TB model, Sonnet will showcase a new 2TB Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive. The rugged, pocket-sized, SSD features NVMe flash storage and leverages the 40Gbps bandwidth interface to deliver data transfer speeds up to 2,600 MB/s. Designed for pro users requiring ultimate performance in a truly portable storage device, the fan-less Fusion Flash Drive is bus-powered and features a rugged aluminum enclosure that effectively cools the SSD.

Finally, Sonnet will preview the newest member of the family, the SF3 Series, the Sonnet RED MINI-MAG card reader. Featuring dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, the reader can support a bus-powered device (such as the CFast 2.0 reader), and can simultaneously ingest files from two RED MINI-MAG cards at their maximum supported data transfer speeds.
