Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card

Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card

8-port, USB-C 10Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 2) PCIe Card with Four USB Controllers Plus USB-C Charging for USB Peripherals

Pro Ports. Max Performance from Each One – First pro PCIe adapter card with eight external USB-C ports, four USB 3.2 controllers, and an x8 PCIe 3.0 bridge chip.

Even in computers with multiple expansion card slots, every slot is valuable—there may not be space to install two 4-port adapter cards. Sonnet’s Allegro™ Pro USB-C® 8-Port PCIe Card is the first adapter card ever to feature eight high performance USB-C ports, fitting them neatly on a standard full-height PCIe card bracket. Ports are spaced to enable connection of eight cables (and even USB-C male to USB-A female adapters).

8 USB-C Ports

Why Sonnet? Many multi-port USB cards split a single USB controller’s bandwidth among their ports, limiting performance when two or more devices are connected and operating. When installed in a computer's PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 slot, Sonnet’s card provides full 10Gbps bandwidth to every one of its eight ports, ensuring maximum performance from each one.

10Gbps USB 3.2 Gen 2 PCIe Card - Perfect for NVMe SSD Enclosures

The Most Capable 10Gbps USB Card – USB SSD Nirvana

Equipped with NVMe SSDs, the fastest USB 3.2 Gen 2 drives available can transfer data at incredible speeds. Chances are your computer has few ports capable of supporting their full performance. Upgrade your workflow in a major way by installing Sonnet’s Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card in your Mac Pro®, Windows, or Linux computer; or Echo™ III Thunderbolt™ to PCIe card expansion system to support up to eight NVMe USB drives at maximum performance*, no power adapters needed.

High Speed Simultaneous Transfers – 10Gbps from Every Port!

Many multi-port USB cards are simple hubs that split a single USB controller’s bandwidth between all its ports, which limits their performance when two or more devices are connected and operating. When installed in a computer's PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 slot, the Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card supports eight simultaneous 10Gbps transfers. It is ideal for transferring data from multiple drives to the computer (and from drive to drive)—data transfers from a single USB 3.2 NVMe SSD device at up to 1000 MB/s. Compared to using a USB 3.1 Gen 1 or USB 3.0 adapter card, transfers complete in half the time!

Built to Perform – Advanced Bandwidth Management Architecture

With its advanced architecture, the Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card can deliver full 10Gbps bandwidth to each of its ports*. This is accomplished by providing each USB controller access to two lanes of PCIe 3.0 via an x8 PCIe 3.0 bridge chip, plus by implementing advanced data traffic management to eliminate bandwidth congestion. By providing full-bandwidth PCIe bridging to four controllers and by eliminating bandwidth congestion, this Sonnet card is the highest-performing USB 3.2 Gen 2 PCIe card ever made.

Virtual Machines USB Peripherals Connections Illustration

Virtually Independent – Supports Four Independent Physical Connections to Virtual Machines (VMs)

The Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card’s four independent USB 3.2 controllers control a pair of ports each. If your VM software supports direct physical connections, then each of these four controllers can be independently attached to a separate virtual machine.

Key Features

  • Eight 10Gbps USB-C Ports On a Single Card
  • Supports Eight USB-C Cables
  • Four Independent USB Controllers, Full 10Gbps Bandwidth Per Port – Features Four USB 3.2 controllers and an x8 PCIe Bridge Chip that Enables Each Port to Support Data Transfers at Up to 1000 MB/s, Even While Transferring Files From Multiple Drives Concurrently
  • Advanced Data Traffic Management
  • Powered Ports
  • Protected Power Delivery
  • Supports Four Independent Physical Connections to Virtual Machines (VMs)
  • Supports Hot-Swappable Device Connections
  • Broad USB Device Support and Compatibility

  • Mac, Windows, and Linux Compatible
  • 2-year Product Warranty

* Performance may be limited when the Allegro card is installed in a PCIe 2.0 slot, or in a Thunderbolt expansion system

 USB Peripherals

Broad Device Support – Easy Card Installation

The Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card offers hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection support with automatic device configuration and works with all USB-IF compliant USB peripherals. This full-height Sonnet card installs easily into a PCIe x16 slot and does not require a driver installation.


Echo III Thunderbolt Expansion Systems

Got an Echo III Thunderbolt Expansion System? Add Eight USB-C Ports Using Only One PCIe Slot

Does your computer have a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe card slot? The Allegro Pro USB-C 8-Port PCIe Card provides great performance, and is ideal for use in a Sonnet Echo III DesktopEcho III Rackmount, or a DuoModo Echo III Module Thunderbolt expansion system. The combo enables you to connect eight USB devices to any Mac, Windows or Linux computer with Thunderbolt ports, supporting aggregate transfers up to 2750 or 3000 MB/s when used with a Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt host, respectively.
