x8 Dual M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD Adapter - PCIe 3.0
PCI Express 3.0 M.2 SSD Adapter Card | For PCIe NVMe and PCIe AHCI M.2 SSDs
Product ID: PEX8M2E2
- Boost system speed and performance, by adding two PCIe M.2 SSDs into the x8 or larger PCIe slot of your PC or server
- The adapter’s high-speed switch lets you access two PCIe M.2 SSDs simultaneously
- Supports PCIe M.2 SSDs (NVMe and AHCI) in 42, 60, and 80 mm lengths
Upgrade your system speed and performance with this Dual M.2 PCIe SSD Adapter. It lets you add two high performance, enterprise-class PCIe 3.0 M.2 SSDs (NVMe and AHCI) into the PCIe 8-lane or larger slot of your desktop workstation or server.
Boost System Performance
The expansion card lets you take full advantage of the fast performance and compact size of PCIe M.2 internal solid-state drives. With the M.2 PCIe based drives in place, the adapter increases your storage capacity and gives your computer a significant speed boost, enhancing data transfer rates.
Access two M.2 PCIe SSDs simultaneously
The dual M.2 to PCIe expansion card employs a high-speed ASM2824 switch, allowing you to access two drives at the same time. Since the adapter card does not rely on PCIe bifurcation, it can easily be integrated into all systems, new and legacy.
The M.2 PCI express adapter also gives you the flexibility to access your M.2 PCIe SSDs individually. Or, you can utilize software RAID to build a RAID array to add redundancy or enhance system performance.
Wide System Compatibility
The adapter connects directly to your computer motherboard to support two PCIe M.2 SSDs through a x8 PCIe expansion slot. The adapter is compatible with PCIe 3.0 motherboards and is backward compatible with PCIe 2.0 and PCIe 1.0.
Supports a Wide Range of PCIe M.2 SSDs
The PCIe M.2 NGFF (M Key) adapter supports PCIe 3.0 NVMe and PCIe-AHCI M.2 SSDs including 2242, 2260, and 2280 drives, supporting the most common drive sizes: 42, 60, and 80 mm lengths.
Easy to Install
The expansion card comes with a full-profile bracket pre-installed, and includes a half-height / low-profile bracket, for installation in small form-factor computers.
Vented brackets on the PCIe M.2 NGFF SSD adapter card increases air flow to assist in heat dissipation.
The TAA compliant PEX8M2E2 is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
- Connect two PCIe M.2 SSDs to your desktop computer or server to boost system speed and increase internal data storage
- Get ultra-fast data access, ideal for high-performance workstations
- Install your operating system on an M.2 PCIe based drive for fast access, while keeping larger platter drives available for bulk storage
