MAXX Digital - ThunderRAID 3 Mini






Maxx Digital has brought the ThunderRAID's little brother to the party! Don't be fooled by the size, this compact RAID array has speeds comparable to the the 8 bay. Maxx Digital has increased the compatibility of this enclosure by offering Thunderbolt 3 performance, simplicity and flexibility.

Thunderbolt 3 technology lets you move data between high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices on a single, compact port. Both data and display signals can be sent and received at the same time through dual 40Gbps channels. A single cable attached to one of the ports provides 2 channels able to achieve the 40Gbps speeds flowing both ways simultaneously. A single Thunderbolt 3 port supports hubs as well as a daisy chain of up to six Thunderbolt 3 devices. The ThunderRAID 3 Mini achieves speeds of 500-550 MB/s in a RAID 5 configuration over Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for the demands of serious HD media creators needs.
