(PressReleasePoint) -MUMBAI, India - July 16, 2014
Apical, distributor for solution based product line, today announced the launch of AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad from Akitio for Windows and Mac users.
The portable Thunderbolt™ 2 PCIe expansion box provides an additional PCIe slot for systems that do not support or have enough available space for expansion cards. The external Thunderbolt 2 connection allows users to daisy-chain up to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices, making this the ideal plug and play companion.

The PCIe (x16) slot accepts half-length, full-height, double-width cards and provides a maximum of 25W. Replacing the card can be done without tools, simply by removing two hand tightening screws for the chassis and one for the card. The second Thunderbolt 2 port lets to daisy-chain five Thunderbolt devices together.
