Expansion case adds two half-length 16x PCIe card slots

Sonnet announced the latest in the Echo family of Thunderbolt expansion chassis for PCI Express cards -- the Echo Express II. Featuring two PCIe slots, the new Thunderbolt-to-PCIe expansion chassis enables the use of a wide variety of PCIe cards originally designed for use in desktop computers with any computer now equipped with a Thunderbolt port. 

The Echo Express II was designed for users needing a compact solution to connect two PCIe cards to their computers, and supports the majority of Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe cards. Based on the original Echo Express expansion chassis, the Echo Express II adds a second slot to support two half-length (up to 7.25 inches long), full-height, single-width PCIe 2.0 x16 cards. Like the rest of the product line, the Echo Express II expansion chassis has dual Thunderbolt ports to support daisy-chaining of devices.

The Echo Express II is now available for $699. More information on the product and compatible PCIe expansion cards is available at the Echo Express product page.
