PEX4SFF8643 U.2 to PCIe Adapter

Cost-effective upgrades
This drive adapter lets you upgrade legacy motherboard platforms and your existing computer, by adding compatibility for newer U.2 NVMe SSDs, which are designed to meet the high-performance needs of today’s data centers and enterprise-level applications.
The adapter card enables IT professionals to cost-effectively upgrade their computing infrastructure by installing the adapter card into the PCIe slots on PCs or servers.

U.2 SSDs also offer superior energy efficiency and reduce energy costs.

Faster read/write speeds
Companies with intensive file workloads can achieve greater productivity by upgrading their applications with U.2 NVMe SSD capability. U.2 SSDs are up to four times faster than SATA SSDs, providing extremely fast read/write speeds, high-speed file access and transfers, and rapid boot times. U.2 SSDs are also more reliable than SATA hard drives, so less time is spent waiting for computers to boot, or applications and files to load.

Through U.2 SSD capability, the drive adapter brings enhanced productivity for numerous applications such as quickly accessing and editing large documents, spreadsheets, or creating 3D models and renderings.

Easy installations
The U.2 SSD adapter lets you add a PCIe NVMe 2.5" SSD to a computer that doesn’t natively support U.2 PCIe NVMe. The adapter simply connects to your computer’s four-lane or greater PCIe slot and enables you to connect a U.2 SSD to your PC through the provided SFF-8643 interface, using an SFF-8643 to U.2 cable. The PCIe 2.5" NVMe SSD adapter is compatible with PCIe 3.0 and PCIe 2.0 motherboards.

The drive adapter is also shipped with a low-profile bracket so that it can be installed in a small form-factor computer.

PEX4SFF8643 is backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
