THB-QUADX image
Part#: THB-QUADX

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 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

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
  • Power delivery provides up to 27W of power to recharge compatible laptops
  • Dedicated DisplayPort for additional monitor to expand the workspace
  • Holds up to four 2.5” or 3.5" drives with SATA 6Gb/s interface
  • Removable trays for easy SSD and HDD installation
  • Two big handles makes it easy to carry the device
  • Large fan for active cooling with power switch
  • Kensington security slot

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 Thunder3 Quad X 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.

Faster Backup and Data Duplication

With the free AKiTiO Data Multiplier application, backing up and duplicating files is faster than ever. Designed with video editors and data imaging technicians in mind, the application requires only a few clicks to simultaneously copy the files from one drive and duplicate them onto up to three other drives.

Benchmark

With Software RAID, the Thunder3 Quad X 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.

For traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), depending on the RPM, the maximum transfer rate for a single drive (Non-RAID) is around 100-200 MB/s. When using four drives in a striped RAID set (RAID 0),  the maximum transfer rate is therefore somewhere around 700-800 MB/s.

For solid state drives (SSDs), the maximum transfer speed is limited by the PCIe to SATA controller inside the Thunder3 Quad X to around 370 MB/s per drive. Because of this limitation, the maximum transfer rate for four striped drives (RAID 0) is about 1480 MB/s, despite the fact that the Thunderbolt 3 interface is capable of speeds faster than that.
