*PCIe cards sold separately; requires Thunderbolt cable

**Compatibility requires the installation of Thunderbolt technology-aware drivers, available from the manufacturer.

***Thunderbolt cable lock compatible with Apple and Sonnet Thunderbolt cables. Not compatible with optical Thunderbolt cables.

****Windows requires a Thunderbolt 2 interface in the computer and in the expansion chassis to support more than two PCIe controllers. Note that some PCIe cards have a bridge to multiple controllers, so it is possible for a single dual-controller PCIe card to reach the limit if not connected via Thunderbolt 2. Not all Mac-compatible PCIe cards are also compatible with Windows.
