Thunderbolt 3 is the new and improved connector that’s slowly making its way into our lives and computers. Akitio, however, is leading the way with a new line of Thunderbolt 3 drives, as well as advancing their Thunderbolt 2 products. We spoke with Akitio’s Richard Wright about their drives, the future of Thunderbolt 3 technology and more.
The AKiTiO T3T connects Thunderbolt™ devices with existing Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt (1) interfaces to the latest Thunderbolt 3 capable computers. This adapter supports bus powered devices and comes with a captive Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) cable included.
This dual bay RAID storage enclosure can reach data transfer speeds of up to 785 MB per second while simultaneously providing two 4K video signal streams. For added convenience and flexibility, the AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro can accommodate both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives. It is completely “tool-less”, so drives can be easily installed or uninstalled.
A screaming fast external storage solution for your Thunderbolt™ 3 computer. The Intel SSD 750 Series is Intel’s first PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD developed for the client enthusiast and workstation markets. In combination with the lightning fast Thunderbolt™ 3 interface, the AKiTiO Thunder3 PCIe SSD is able to deliver over 2000 MB/s of read speeds. No longer limited to large RAID systems, professionals in need of speed can now take the drive with them on location and work on footage in the field.
This 4-bay storage enclosure is designed to house up to four 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drives. With Software RAID, four striped SSD’s can reach data transfer speeds of up to 1375 MB per second while the Thunderbolt 3 interface provides sufficient bandwidth for additional 4K video signal streams and data transfers at the same time. An ultra durable aluminum casing provides efficient heat dissipation, plus an extra large rear fan keeps your drives cool during long hours of operation.
