Description
AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIe Expansion Box
Graphics cards are not supported. This Thunderbolt product is not compatible with Apple's Boot Camp. The portable Thunderbolt™ 2 PCIe expansion box provides an additional PCIe slot for systems that do not support or have enough available space for expansion cards. The external Thunderbolt 2 connection allows you to daisy-chain up to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices, making this the ideal plug and play companion especially when you have to take your system with you. Replacing the card is a simple matter of removing three hand tightening screws, so no tools are required.

Features
Two Thunderbolt™ 2 ports for lightning fast speeds of up to 20Gb/s
1 PCIe (x16) slot supporting half-length, full-height, double-width cards
4 lane PCI Express 2.0 compliant interface at 5.0Gbps
Removable back panel for double-width cards
Daisy-chain up to 6 Thunderbolt™ devices
Durable and rugged aluminum casing
No tools required for installation
4K Workflow with Thunderbolt 2 Technology
Thunderbolt 2 technology incorporates DisplayPort 1.2 support, which allows for video streaming to a single 4K video monitor. If you are a video editor, you can now use a single port to connect your external Thunderbolt devices and a 4K display.

4 Lane PCI Express 2.0 Compliant Interface
The PCIe (x16) slot accepts half-length, full-height, double-width cards and provides a maximum of 25W. Replacing the card can be done without tools, simply by removing two hand tightening screws for the chassis and one for the card.

Provides Two Thunderbolt 2 Ports for Daisy-Chain
The second Thunderbolt 2 port lets you daisy-chain up to five Thunderbolt devices together. For example, you can attach additional external drives and even a display, all connected to the computer through a single cable.

This Thunderbolt product is not compatible with Apple's Boot Camp. PCIe card (driver) must be compatible with requirements for Thunderbolt technology (e.g. hot-plug support, recovery from sleep). Graphics cards are not supported. Thunderbolt cable not included with all models or in all regions. To connect this device to a Thunderbolt 3 computer, a Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter like the AKiTiO T3T is required.

Hello, is it possible to insert/use a gtx 970 graphics card onto a 2015 mac pro 2.8ghz?If so how would it be possible?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 10/02/2016


I would recommend contacting Akitio directly on this, so you know it will do the job you want!

i really want to do this so if you can please answer my questions:) 1. how do you like it so far? do you still recommend it? 2. is gaming with the new games out alright..witcher 3? 3. does it compare to a regular build.. performance wise? im new to building and i might do this instead. 4. are you able to connect to other monitors? how many? 5. how is the heat and sound with a high end card like a 970? 6. am i able to connect both hard drive and graphics card or possibly sli 970?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 07/10/2015

I'll cut to the chase for you: 1. I like it. Aside from the fact it was very quiet, it was also surprisingly discreet and compact. Add to this that it was very portable meant it was also a very 'stop and drop' add on to my office setup. 2. Gaming setups are a sore point. In a Mac environment, this device was totally unsuitable for graphics cards (multiple kernal issues in graphics display). If you are working with a Windows Enviroment, many people have had very positive results. 3. If you have a straight between a laptop/macbook and a full PC setup - if costs are the same, I would opt for the Desktop PC setup - just for sure fire 'in house' control. Remember that the external PCIe box require an extra power connection. 4.Not sure, definitely refer to the manufacturers at Akitio 5. Cannot refer to precise card temperatures, but in general I found temperatures very low indeed (largely due to the fan and ventilation). 6. Just the one card I'm afraid - but full spec. I hope this helped. If you want to get your hands on one of these, contact us at SPAN.COM. Here's a link to the unit itself https://www.span.com/product/AKiTiO-Thunderbolt-PCIe-Thunder2-PCIe-Box-T2PC-TIA-AKTU-2x-TB2-1x-PCI-Express-v2-0-x16-FHHL-x4-speed-~50137 Alternatively, contact me at robbie@span.com and I can look into prices etc. Thanks again

is it suitable for gaming? if so would the GeForce gtx 750 be compatible for it

Reply from SPAN.COM | 07/10/2015

Gaming setups are a sore point. In a Mac environment, this device was totally unsuitable for graphics cards (multiple kernal issues in graphics display). If you are working with a Windows Enviroment, many people have had very positive results, however the manufacturer does not recommend this.

What would you recommend for a laptop graphics card expansion?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 07/10/2015

If you are enquiring about the Expansion itself (not the Graphics Card), I would recommend the Sonnet Echo Express SE I - https://www.span.com/product/Sonnet-Echo-Express-SE-I-ECHO-EXP-SE1-Thunderbolt2-Expansion-Chassis-1x-Half-Length-PCIe2-x8-slot-Full-Height-~46198 However if you are in a windows OS Enviroment or do not have Thunderbolt, then I would recommend This more cost effect option from Netstor - https://www.span.com/product/NetStor-External-ePCIe-Expansion-NA221A-DT-NOPSU-TurboBox-v2-Mini-Desktop-Package-TurboBox-v2-Mini-PCIe-Card-Cable-SPECIAL-NO-PSU~46479 Both are available now from SPAN.COM and come with 14 day return policies and ship worldwide. Thank you for your question.
