Using a video, audio, storage, network, or even gaming PCIe card with a Mac Pro or PC desktop is a simple matter of inserting your card into an open slot. But what do you do if you have a laptop or even a space-confined desktop like an iMac or Mac mini that doesn't contain a PCIe slot? The OWC Mercury Helios 3S is an easy to use yet powerful expansion solution that adds an external PCIe slot to your Thunderbolt 3 equipped computer. Now you can maximize your existing PCIe card investment — or expand it! — while enjoying the flexibility of adding professional-class video production, transcoding, audio processing, data storage, and high-speed network connectivity to your machine. Instead of buying one or more function-dedicated Thunderbolt interface devices, you can use Mercury Helios 3S like a dock for multiple PCIe cards. Capture incredibly high-quality audio with a PCIe audio card and then retask Helios 3S with a PCIe SSD card to edit and archive tracks. You can swap cards in minutes, adding a new level of flexibility to your workflow. Mercury Helios 3S supports a wide variety of half-length, full-height, single or double-width pro-level PCIe cards from leading brands like AJA, Apogee, ATTO, Avid Pro Tools, Blackmagic Design, CalDigit, HighPoint, Intel, Solid State Logic, Universal Audio, and OWC: Video capture Digital audio Solid State Drive (SSD) 40GbE/10GbE network adapters SAS controllers Firewire, USB, or eSATA host adapters
NEW - Silent Model - Now Supports Double-sided SSDs
Install up to Four M.2 NVMe SSDs into a PCIe Card Slot – Ultra-speed Data Transfers!
If you need to add internal storage to your computer and ultra high-speed data transfers are critical to your work, you need an NVMe SSD-based upgrade. Individually, M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs offer tremendous performance, but Sonnet’s M.2 4x4 PCIe Card enables you to mount up to four of them into a single x16 card slot.
Use the Sonnet card for instant-access media storage or as a high-performance scratch disk in your Mac Pro® tower; Windows® or Linux® PC desktop or server; or Thunderbolt™ to PCIe card expansion system with an available x16 PCIe slot. Are you an Adobe After Effects user? Imagine being able to perform 4Kp60 work in 32-bit linear, or even 4Kp24 with high channel count EXRs (or effects in 8K) where your computer's onboard storage couldn’t keep up! Legacy Mac® users can install macOS® on one SSD to create an incredibly fast boot drive and create a RAID 0 set with the other installed SSDs and still obtain blazing-fast performance. No matter how you use it, this card can transform the way you work.
