Sonnet currently announced the upcoming launch of its Fusion Flex J3i inner drive mount for the 2019 Mac Professional, which allows consumers insert up to three SATA storage drives to their equipment.
Sonnet isn’t the only firm to launch an internal drive mount for the new Mac Pro, and Apple itself sells Promise’s Pegasus J2i system that lets you insert two drives, but Sonnet suggests it truly is the initial to permit users increase a few drives correct inside the Mac Pro and related directly via SATA.
The Fusion Flex J3i presents two slots that can settle for both 3.5-inch really hard disk drives or 2.5-inch SSDs, and a 3rd slot that accepts a 2.5-inch SSD, enabling for a overall of 36TB of additional inner storage.
Storage mounted via the Fusion Flex J3i is not going to be as rapid as the primary NVMe SSDs at the coronary heart of the Mac Pro or PCIe-dependent storage upgrades, in particular if you happen to be using traditional tricky disk drives, but if you are a user who wants to prioritize storage room and simplicity in excess of generate speed, Sonnet’s Fusion Flex J3i may possibly be well worth examining out.
The Fusion Flex J3i includes the mount, essential ability/facts cable assemblies, and mounting brackets to suit 2.5-inch drives into the 3.5-inch generate slots, but the drives on their own are offered separately. It will be priced at $199.99 and launches on June 15.
