Out of the box, the new G-RAID mini is set up in RAID 0 (performance mode), with its two 7,200 RPM drives working together.

Its soft-touch On/Off switch and thermo-regulated "smart" fan keeps the G-RAID drive cool and quiet in the editing suite. The 8TB G-RAID drive will have an MSRP of $809.99.

The G-DRIVE is a professional-strength external hard drive in a single-drive desktop solution. With capacities now up to 4TB and multiple interface options (USB 3.0 and FireWire 400/800), the G-DRIVE features fast 7,200 RPM drives and a fan-less cooling system. The 4TB G-DRIVE solution will have an MSRP of $359.99.

The G-Technology G-DRIVE slim and G-DRIVE mobile external drive family will be available in Apple Stores in July. The G-DRIVE and G-RAID solutions will be available in August 2012. The G-DRIVE mini and G-RAID mini solutions will be available in Q3 2012.
