This 4-bay storage enclosure is designed to house up to four 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drives. With Software RAID, four striped SSD's can reach data transfer speeds of up to 1375 MB 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 aluminium casing provides efficient heat dissipation, plus an extra-large rear fan keeps your drives cool during long hours of operation.
Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. For the first time, one computer port connects to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices. A single cable now provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power to bus-powered devices.
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.
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.
With the 6-pin Mini-Fit Jr.™ power connector, the power cable is held in place securely to avoid accidental disconnection of the device and to prevent subsequent data loss.
With Software RAID, the AKiTiO Thunder3 Quad provides users the ability to edit and playback multiple streams of HD and/or 4K content with enough headroom to simultaneously daisy-chain additional monitors and storage devices.
The transfer speeds for this benchmark were obtained using the AJA System Test tool with 1GB test files at 5K resolution. These results closely reflect the real-world performance but the actual transfer rates can vary depending on the test environment
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. Features • Thunderbolt 3 interface for lightning fast transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps.
• Second Thunderbolt 3 port supports Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.
• Dedicated DisplayPort for additional monitor to expand the workspace.
• Large and quiet low speed fan (1900 RPM) for active cooling.
• Large handle provides comfortable grip when carrying the device.
• Removable trays for easy SSD and HDD installation.
• Kensington security slot.

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.
