As today’s requirements for faster and more reliable solutions grows, AKiTiO comes to the rescue with Thunder3 Duo Pro, the first hardware RAID and display dock solution with a Thunderbolt 3 port. The Thunder3 Duo Pro offers fast transfer speeds with the added flexibility of a DisplayPort video output in a form factor small enough to fit multiple desktop and mobile workflows and applications.
With two Thunderbolt 3 ports available, the Thunder3 Duo Pro can deliver transfer speeds up to 770 MB/s while simultaneously providing two 4K video streams to connected displays. To put things into perspective, the latest Thunderbolt 3 technology provides roughly 8x faster speeds than USB 3.1 Gen 1 and it’s 4x faster than USB 3.1 Gen 2.
The Thunder3 Duo Pro comes in as a 2-bay RAID enclosure supporting four RAID modes, including RAID 0 striping, RAID 1 mirroring, SPAN, and Non-RAID. The unit features two Thunderbolt 3 Ports, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Type-B) port, and a DisplayPort video output that supports the latest 4K 60HZ displays. The second Thunderbolt 3 port on the Thunder3 Duo Pro operates the same as a Thunderbolt 3 computer port by supporting Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy chained), USB 3.1 (10Gb/s), and DisplayPort devices.
The Thunder3 Duo Pro can also accommodate 2.5” SSD/HDD and 3.5”HDDs up to 16TB as the drives can be easily installed or uninstalled. Additionally, Thunder3 Duo Pro can run fanless when needed, making it the perfect choice for professional audio recording when SSDs are installed on board. The best part is that Thunder3 Duo Pro gives creative professionals the ability to edit and playback multiple streams of HD and/or 4K content with enough headroom to daisy chain multiple 4K displays simultaneously.
The Thunder2 Duo Pro retail price starts at $389 for the enclosure only. The AKiTiO’s RAID enclosure can be already purchased at the global authorized resellers. You can also take a look at the other AKiTiO’s Thunderbolt 3 storage solutions by visiting the AKiTiO’s official website.
