ThunderTek/PX PCIe Controller Options
Thunderbolt™ technology allows the new FirmTek ThunderTek/PX product line to harness the power of compatible PCIe controller cards for use with Thunderbolt enabled computers like the 2011 or later iMac, Mac mini, Macbook Pro, MacBook Air, 2013 Mac Pro and Windows computers. An expensive workstation like the Mac Pro is no longer required to utilize professional PCIe cards. Just install a compatible PCIe card in the ThunderTek/PX, connect the Thunderbolt cable and your upgrade is complete. Now you have access to Ultra-fast, PCIe upgrades on the go!

Compatible PCIe cards require a Thunderbolt-aware driver in order to be properly recognized by the computer. ThunderTek/PX compatible PCIe cards can provide many different functions including eSATA, SAS, Fibre Channel, 10Gb Ethernet, FireWire and USB connections. For your reference, a sample list of ThunderTek/PX certified PCIe cards is provided below.
