World’s First Thunderbolt 3 RAID

It takes Thunderbolt 3 to easily supply the pixel information for two 4k displays to run simultaneously at 60Hz. What is going to supply this 40Gbps data stream? Well the AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro of course! AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro is one of the first hardware RAID and display dock systems designed with the Thunderbolt 3 hardware connection interface. As well as super fast transfers it is built with a dual DisplayPort video output in a device small enough for a desktop.

On January 5 AKiTiO unveiled the Thunder3 Duo Pro, the industry’s first hardware RAID and display dock solution designed to unleash the groundbreaking speed and simplicity of Thunderbolt™ 3.

The Dell XPS series is the first to include the USB-C connections for Thunderbolt 3 on its new laptops with the latest Skylake version of Core m installed. Check the link above for more info on this technology.

Utilizing Thunderbolt 3, the Thunder3 Duo Pro can deliver transfer speeds up to 770 MB/s while simultaneously providing two 4K video streams to connected displays, roughly 8x faster than USB 3.1 Gen 1 and 4x faster than USB 3.1 Gen 2.  Thunder3 Duo Pro is ideal for consumers and professionals who want high-capacity external storage with advanced RAID support and robust data protection. thunderbolt 3

We’re thrilled to see such strong PC adoption for Thunderbolt 3”, said Jason Ziller, Intel’s Director of Thunderbolt Marketing. “With unmatched transfer speeds, support for multiple 4K displays, notebook charging, and compatibility with existing I/O technologies, Thunderbolt 3 is setting a new bar for the industry.

Thunderbolt 3 data transfer ports can also be used to quickly charge notebooks up to 100W with a single cable, and are compatible with existing USB devices and cables and DisplayPort 1.2.
