OWC has released the second generation of their ThunderBlade external SSD, with a lower price point and improved performance.
For creative professionals and prosumers who work to capture and process 4K or 8K video, the updated ThunderBlade Gen 2 runs cooler than the previous iteration, while still maintaining a near-silent environment with its fanless operation. With dual Thunderbolt 3 ports users can daisy-chain up to five additional ThunderBlades, and by connecting more than one drive with SoftRAID, speeds can be increased up to 3800MB/s. The newest ThunderBlade can complete a 1TB content transfer in under four-and-a-half minutes.
The OWC ThunderBlade comes with a Thunderbolt 3 cable included and is backed by OWC’s 3-year warranty. It is available now:
