Dual Thunderbolt 3 Ports Fast, flexible, and simple conenctivity for your motherboard, now built in!

Built-in Thunderbolt 3

No more third party PCI cards

Powered by Intel’s own Thunderbolt controller, the new Thunderbolt 3 protocol, which is available over two USB Type-CTM connectors on the back 1/0 of the workstation, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s twice more than the previous generation of Thunderbolt! This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 3.1, which is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities.

Fast M.2 SSD. Offering speeds at least four times faster than a conventional hard drive, SSDs are th ebest way to go for a high performance Media PC.

Ultra Fast SSD Storage

Industry leading Samsung SSD Technology

The benefits of an SSD over an old spinning hard drive are many. For starters, your Media PC will start up far more quickly than off a hard drive, and startup of applications is quicker too. Most important however, is the speed with which you can access your files, particularly important when dealing with large image or video files.
