From initial concept, the ROBEN-3TX has been precision engineered to be the “perfect sidekick” for connecting PCIe cards to the new Apple Mac Pro and the next generation of Thunderbolt™ workstations.
Engineered to Magma’s mission critical standards for performance and reliability, ROBEN-3TX features three (3) full-length, full-height PCIe slots with a robust, high speed backplane and Thunderbolt™ 2. The rack-mountable aluminum chassis was designed for integrated removable storage expansion, providing flexibility with two customer configurable 5.25” expansion bays, a fanless 520-watt power supply, auxiliary power, and features Magma’s exclusive quiet cooling control. From initial concept, the ROBEN-3TX Thunderbolt configuration has been precision engineered to be the “perfect sidekick” for the new Apple Mac Pro and other Apple and PC devices.
Fuel your creative genius by adding a host of specialty PCIe cards to any Thunderbolt 2-equipped computer to achieve expanded performance in every working environment. ROBEN-3TX’s patented performance optimizing backplane seamlessly integrates PCIe expansion, storage, and Thunderbolt 2 connectivity and ensures that all devices installed in the system operate with the maximum possible speed, and minimum potential for data loss. This design gives audio engineers, video producers, game developers, and graphic designers the same level of data fidelity that had previously been reserved for defense and aerospace industry projects.
With the fastest card-to-card communication, integrated high capacity storage, and the largest expansion capacity on the market, ROBEN-3TX sets the bar for high-end Thunderbolt 2-based computing.

The Thunderbolt™ cable is sold separately.
No firmware, software or driver is required from Magma, but you may need an updated driver for your PCIe card.
Check the Thunderbolt PCIe Card Compatibility for a list of cards that have Thunderbolt 2 Compatible drivers. If your PCIe card is not on this list, contact the card manufacturer to ask if they have a Thunderbolt 2 Compatible driver.
No, it will not work as an add-in PCIe card in a Mac Tower.
Yes. If you have a mix of generations on a Thunderbolt™ 2 daisy chain, make sure that the Thunderbolt™ devices sit after the Thunderbolt™ 2 devices on the chain. Anything placed after a first generation Thunderbolt™ device will operate at Thunderbolt™ speeds.
