For sale is a Universal Audio Thunderbolt 2 Option Card. The condition is like new, never used, was immediately pulled from a new interface for upgrade. Both TB2 ports recently tested thoroughly on a MacBook Pro. Includes the anti-static bag and kit with a hex wrench for installation.
The Thunderbolt™ 2 Option Card for Apollo and Apollo 16 audio interfaces provides blazing fast PCIe audio drivers, greater UAD plug-in instances, improved performance at higher sample rates, and reduced UAD plug-in latency versus Apollo’s standard FireWire connection. Compatible with Intel’s Thunderbolt technology on the latest generation of iMacs®, MacBook® Pros, MacBook Airs®, and Mac minis and compatible PCs.
The Thunderbolt 2 Option Card offers unrivaled bandwidth and next-generation connectivity for the Apollo interface. The user-installable Thunderbolt 2 Option Card includes two Thunderbolt ports, and easily slides into the expansion bay of Apollo. Bus power is provided to downstream Thunderbolt devices, allowing music producers to connect Thunderbolt peripherals in series with the Apollo interface — including hard drives, computer monitors, and 4K displays. The primary benefit of Thunderbolt 2 is to facilitate the use of 4K video displays.
> * Thunderbolt 2 and Thunderbolt 1 have the same total amount of bandwidth (20 Gbps). Thunderbolt 1 has two 10 Gbps lanes while Thunderbolt 2 has one 20 Gbps lane.
> * 4K video requires more than 10 Gbps (but less than 20 Gbps) at video refresh rates higher than 30 Hz. Thunderbolt 2 enables the increased bandwidth needed to deliver 4K video resolutions at 60 Hz refresh rates.
> * The Thunderbolt 2 Option Card can be connected directly to Macs and PCs that have Thunderbolt 1 or Thunderbolt 2 ports. The Thunderbolt 2 Option Card can be connected to Macs that have Thunderbolt 3 ports via the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter.
