- Or just add an USB 3.0 HUB chip... would probably cost $2 instead of $1...
- And back to the RB 450Gx4, it doesn't even have mPCIe slot, so no excuses here
in case of the 450Gx4 it was a crucial goal to keep the same form factor as the 850Gx2 and 450/450G.
alao it is rated for harsh temperatures so you don’t really have full freedom at chosing components. the pcb is already filled with components, no place for a mpcie slot or a full sized usb connector.
new externally accessible connectors would anyway require new case designs or mods, and there are tons of 3rd party case manufacturers out there.
