Sonnet announces high-performance USB-C 20Gbps PCIe card with support for 2K data transfers

Contributed Content / Press Release

Sonnet Technologies has announced the Allegro Max USB-C 20Gbps 1-Port PCIe Card, a new, low-cost addition to Sonnet’s broad range of USB adapter cards.

The Allegro Max card adds a single USB-C 20Gbps port to computers with PCIe card slots, enabling superfast data transfers with the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 portable SSDs.

The Allegro Max USB-C 20Gbps 1-Port PCIe Card is a low-profile PCIe adapter card for Mac, Windows and Linux computers that connects a single USB-C peripheral device. The card installs into an available x4 PCIe card slot and uses drivers built into the operating system software. In addition to the full-height PCIe bracket attached to the Allegro Max card, Sonnet includes a low-profile bracket in the package that enables the card’s use in computers that cannot support a full-height card.

Many desktop computers include only 10Gbps and slower USB ports, limiting data transfer speeds of connected storage devices to 1,000 MB/s or less.

However, by integrating the Sonnet Allegro Max USB-C 20Gbps 1-Port PCIe Card, users can experience a significant enhancement in data transfer speeds. By supporting USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 SSDs’ data transfer speeds up to 2,000 MB/s, the card enables content creators to save or read files up to twice as fast as possible with a 10Gbps connection, while gamers may load stored games in half the time. The Sonnet Allegro Max USB-C 20Gbps 1-Port PCIe Card delivers its impressive performance boost for the fastest USB 3 SSDs, and also supports most other USB devices at maximum performance.

The Allegro Max USB-C 20Gbps 1-Port PCIe Card (part number USB3C-1M20G-E) is available now from Sonnet and soon from its worldwide distribution and reseller partners at the suggested retail price of $34.99.
