Allegro Type A USB 3.2 PCIe 4-Port (USB 3.2 Gen 1 PCIe card with four USB-A 5Gbps ports & USB charging)
Part No. USB3-4PM-E
Speedy USB 3.2 Gen 1 Performance: Add Four USB-A 5Gbps Ports to Computers and Expansion Systems with PCIe slots
USB 2.0 ports are perfectly adequate for connecting mice, keyboards, and printers, but their limited data transfer speeds of 25–30 MB/s are hardly “high performance”. Standard USB drives today feature USB 3.0 interfaces and offer significantly better performance. Though you can connect them to your computer’s USB 2.0 ports, their performance would be reduced by as much as 85 percent! With a Sonnet Allegro Type A USB 3.2 PCIe 4-Port card installed in the PCIe slot of your Mac Pro®, Windows®, or Linux® computer, or Thunderbolt Expansion System, you instantly add four SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports to your system to take full advantage of today’s drives’ performance capabilities.
Sonnet's Allegro has the following advantages:
- Delivers 2.0A of power per port to USB bus-powered devices
- Doesn't require separate power plug connection; gets the power required to operate connected drives from the slot it’s installed in
- Supports USB 3.0 charging specification that enables simultaneously charge and sync of iOS and other devices that support USB 3.0 charging
