Product Overview The Node Pro provides an additional PCIe slot for Thunderbolt 3 computers (e.g. laptop computers) where installing an internal expansion card is not an option and for systems where there is not enough space for more PCIe cards. The Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection not only makes adding an external PCIe card easy but it also allows you to take the device with you to use on location and move it from one system to another. Installing and replacing the PCIe card is a simple matter of removing a few thumb screws and does not require any tools.

• USB power delivery provides 60W of power to recharge compatible laptops.
• Built-in 500W SFX power supply with an extra pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
• 1 PCIe (x16) slot supporting full-length, full-height, double-width cards.
• 4 lane PCI Express 3.0 compliant interface.
• Wire mesh panel to dissipate heat from cards with on-board fans.
• Retractable carry handle to easily transport the device.
• No tools required for installation of PCIe card.

Supports PCIe Gen3 x4 Cards
The PCIe (x16) slot accepts full-length, full-height, double-width cards and provides a maximum of 75W. The four PCIe Gen3 lanes and the Thunderbolt 3 interface are capable of transfer rates up to 40Gbps, providing enough bandwidth for both the internal PCIe card as well as any additional Thunderbolt devices in the daisy chain.

Power Delivery (60W)
The reversible USB Type-C (USB-C) connector enhances ease of use for connecting devices with a focus on minimizing user confusion for plug and cable orientation. The Node Pro also supports power delivery (PD) over USB-C, providing up to 3A at 5V, 9V, 15V, 20V with a maximum of 60W of power to compatible laptops like the MacBook Pro (late 2016) that support charging through the USB-C cable. This allows you to recharge your battery even though the laptop is not plugged into any other power source.

PSU Fan
The fan for the power supply turns on and off automatically when needed.

Case Fan
The large fan at the bottom of the case pulls out the hot air from inside the enclosure, keeping the the PCIe card cool during long hours of operation.

Mesh Panel
The mesh panel provides fresh air to keep the PCIe card cool and depending on the on-board fan of the PCIe card, can be used for air intake or exhaust.

Thunderbolt™ 3
Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. For the first time, one computer port connects to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices. A single cable now provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power to bus-powered devices.

The Node Pro has two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The second port operates the same as a Thunderbolt 3 computer port by supporting Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.

DisplayPort
The dedicated DisplayPort connector makes it easy to connect an additional monitor to extend your workspace. This video output capability requires a Thunderbolt 3 connection to the computer and will free up the second Thunderbolt 3 port for Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices. Features Application

1 x PCIe card (see compatibility chart)
Supports full-length (max 12.59 in / 32 cm), full-height (max 6.69 in / 17 cm) and double-width (max 2.5 slots) cards
PCIe (x16 mechanical) slot provides a maximum of 75W but additional power can be supplied to the PCIe card by connecting a pair of 8-pin (6+2) PCIe connectors (max 400W)

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

Reviews
AKiTiO Node Pro Thunderbolt3 PCIe 3.0 Expansion Box with 500W Power Supply for PC/MAC is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built, good size, mac fails to notices a Sapphire Vega 64. I like the build quality, feels solid, easy to put a card in and out. quite a quiet runner, clever how it powers up the card when plugged into computer. The handle is surprisingly useful. extra usb-c port a bonus, though i would have liked a couple of plain usb ports for my old keyboard and mouse. the onboard display port worked with the mac however... I got this thinking it would support a Sapphire Nitro+ vega 64. It physically fits and powers up, however the macbook pro only detects the Akitio Node Pro, it does not detect the graphics card. Hence returned.
