Akasa has announced the DuoDock MX docking station, designed to build high-performance external storage based on solid-state drives.
The device is made in a white body with dimensions of 93 × 93 × 132 mm. Inside there are connectors for two M.2 NVMe modules with a PCIe 4.0 interface (products with a PCIe 3.0 interface can also be used).
To connect to a desktop computer or laptop, the station uses a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C connector with a bandwidth of up to 10 Gb/s. We are talking about backward compatibility with the USB 3.2 Gen 1 / USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 standards.
On the front of the novelty is the Clone button, which allows you to create duplicate M.2 solid-state drives without connecting to a computer. An LED status display is also provided.
A thin fan is responsible for cooling the memory. Guaranteed compatibility with Apple macOS, Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. The price is around 120 USD.
