Product Overview The Akitio Thunder 3 Quad mini 4-bay storage enclosure is designed to house up to four 2.5-inch drives. With Software RAID, four striped SSDs can reach data transfer speeds of up to 1480 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 aluminum casing provides efficient heat dissipation, plus an extra large rear fan keeps your drives cool during long hours of operation.

Power delivery over USB-C
The AKiTiO Thunder3 Quad Mini supports power delivery (PD) over USB-C, providing 15W of power to laptops like the MacBook Pro (late 2016) that support charging from a 5V/3A power source. This allows you to work with the external drive without the battery levels of your laptop dropping even though the laptop is not plugged into any other power source.

High Speed Vs Value
AKiTiO Thunder3 Quad Mini 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 4GB 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

When using hard disk drives (HDDs), the maximum transfer rate for a single drive (Non-RAID) is around 100 MB/s. For this reason, even four striped drives max out at around 400 MB/s.

For solid state drives (SSDs), the SATA 6Gb/s interface allows each individual drive to run at full SATA-III speeds (~520 MBs/) but the PCIe to SATA controller is limited to four PCIe 2.0 lanes (Gen2 x4). Due to this limitation, the maximum transfer rate for a striped RAID set with four SSDs is about 1480 MB/s, despite the fact that the Thunderbolt 3 interface is capable of speeds faster than that.

Thunderbolt 3
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 Mini 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.

DisplayPort
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.
