Today at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB), mLogic LLC announced that the company's mLink PCIe to Thunderbolt expansion chassis will be demonstrated at the following booths on the trade show floor:

G-Technology, Inc. - SL11105 | Editshare LLC - SL9012 | Intel Corporation - SL12810
Other World Computing - SL14110 | RED Digital Cinema - SL3324 | Skymicro, Inc. - SL 12715
Small Tree Communications - SL7425

mLink enables PCIe adapter cards (video capture cards, RAID controllers, host bus adapters, SSDs, etc.) to be attached to Thunderbolt-equipped computers. mLink brings the functionality of these add-in cards that formerly required a desktop system to all-in-one and portable computers like the iMac and MacBook Pro. Visit www.mlogic.com for a list of Thunderbolt-aware PCIe cards that are compatible with mLink.





mLink Highlights:

- Links PCIe cards with Thunderbolt-aware drivers to computers with a Thunderbolt port
- Two Thunderbolt ports for easy daisy-chaining of up to six Thunderbolt peripherals
- Small and sleek desktop form factor

"I am thrilled to have partnered with recognized leaders in the content creation industry to showcase our new mLink at NAB 2012," said Roger Mabon, CEO of mLogic. "Using mLink, PCIe cards such as Fibre Channel HBAs, 10GbE NICs and RAID controllers can be linked to Thunderbolt-equipped portable computers like the MacBook Pro. No more big-iron desktops required!"

Pricing and Availability

mLink will be available in June through select retailers and distributors or direct via the company's online store at www.mlogic.com. MSRP is $399.99.

Gpu's are not in compatible device list. It states that the driver must also be thunderbolt aware. So are graphics drivers thunderbolt aware yet? It might require modding to make a 9800gt fit. Someone else will probably release one meant for gpu's sometime that will probably be cheaper than $400, since it won't have as much of an apple user appeal design wise. Unless they design it as such.
