The AKiTiO Thunder3 QUAD RAID is a 4-Bay RAID enclosure able to house up to 4 x 2.5″ or 3.5″ SATA HDD’s or SSD’s.
With Software RAID, four striped SSD’s configured in RAID 0 can reach data transfer speeds of up to 1375MB 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.
Thunderbolt 3 Connectivity
The AKiTiO Thunder3 Quad 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.
The dedicated DisplayPort connector makes it easy to connect an additional monitor to extend your workspace and it will free up the second Thunderbolt 3 port for other Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.
Removable Drive Trays
Designed to house up to four 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drives, the tray based system allows for easy installation and replacement of either the large desktop hard disk drives or the portable laptop drives and SSD’s.
For traditional spinning hard disk drives, the maximum transfer rate for a single drive (Non-RAID) is around 200 MB/s. Only when used in a striped RAID set can the transfer rates exceed 200 MB/s.
For solid state drives, the maximum transfer speed is limited by the PCIe to SATA controller to around 370 MB/s per drive. Because of this limitation, the maximum transfer rate for a striped RAID with four drives is about 1375 MB/s, even though the Thunderbolt 3 interface is capable of speeds faster than that.
