The absence of PCIe slots in the next-generation Apple Mac Pro introduces a challenge to users who rely on PCIe cards and other specialized hardware in their workflows. Now, more than ever, Magma's Thunderbolt PCIe Expansion chassis are a key accessory for users to take full advantage of the GPU muscle in the new Mac Pro while also protecting investments in specialized PCIe cards. Here's what Magma has to say...
Magma's ExpressBox 1T and ExpressBox 3T enable serious professionals to attach PCIe cards to ANY Thunderbolt-equipped computer, supporting the next generation of "outside the box" high-speed connectivity. Current ExpressBox 1T and 3T product designs will make upgrading to Thunderbolt 2 a breeze. Magma is excited to expand our Thunderbolt product line beyond basic PCIe expansion to sophisticated and cutting-edge Thunderbolt solutions. Stay tuned!
The Magma team has worked diligently with partners to ensure Thunderbolt compatibility with our PCIe expansion products. As a result, Magma's Thunderbolt PCIe Expansion product family will provide cost-effective options for a smooth transition from Apple's Mac Pro Tower to the newly redesigned Mac Pro.
