Magma today announced the planned release of a Thunderbolt™ 2 compatible version of its popular EB1T, EB3T and ROBEN-3TS and 3TX expansion computing systems. The updated products will carry the same prices as the original, Thunderbolt™ versions, and will begin shipping to select resellers by February 28th.

“As with all of our products, we have invested the time and effort to make sure that our Thunderbolt™ 2 product variants are ready for prime time, and reflect the high quality the Magma brand represents,” said Magma president, Timothy Miller. “Our customers expect reliability from our products, and we are committed to living up to that expectation.”
