Enable fast backups, editing, and file sharing from external peripherals such as hard drives, digital cameras, and video cameras, plus reduce the time needed to complete key tasks on select HP workstations using the Thunderbolt 3 PCIe 2-Port I/O Card from HP. Compatible with HP’s Z8 G4, Z6 G4, and Z4 G4 Tower Workstations, Thunderbolt 3 uses the reversible USB Type-C connector and offers bi-directional transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. Thunderbolt 3 also transmits data and 15W of power via 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2. Thunderbolt 3 supports both data (PCIe) and video (DisplayPort) using one cable connection that can daisy-chain up to six devices together.
Aside from Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C connectivity, this card offers two DisplayPort inputs for connecting displays. It is also compatible with NVIDIA Quadro P5000, Quadro 4000, Quadro 2000, and AMD WX7100 graphics cards. HP’s Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Card does have specific PCIe slot requirements for proper operations. When used with the Z8 G4, it must be installed in slot 1, while the Z6 G4 requires slot 6 and the Z4 G4 requires slot 4. If you have 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 or 10 Gb/s Thunderbolt devices, those may be used with an adapter.
HP’s Thunderbolt 3 PCIe 2-Port I/O Card requires Windows 10 Pro (64-bit). Included are two DisplayPort cables and general-purpose input/output cables. Protection is provided by either a limited 1-year warranty, or the remainder of the HP-supported product in which it is installed, plus 24/7 tech support, which is available by phone and in online forums.
