Thunderbolt storage drives to strike later in 2013

James Galbraith | April 15, 2013
Intel's high speed Thunderbolt interconnect technology, found primarily on Apple's side of the computing fence, enjoyed a big week at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas. As the push for higher-resolution video continues to grow, so do the file sizes, making the need for faster sustainable throughput ever greater.

G-Drive PRO with Thunderbolt

G-Technology used the show to introduce the G-Drive Pro with Thunderbolt. This desktop hard drive has dual Thunderbolt ports for daisy-chaining devices. G-Technology claims speeds comparable to SSD, but with the high capacities of standard hard drives. Two configurations of the G-Drive Pro with Thunderbolt, a 2TB and 4TB version, will be available this Summer at $700 and $850, respectively.


Also new from G-Technology, is the G-Dock ev with Thunderbolt, the first of the company's new Evolution line of storage products. The G-Dock ev comes with two removable 1TB hard drive modules that fit into the dock and can be configured as RAID 0, RAID 1, or JBOD. When not inserted into the G-Dock ev, the modules can be used with USB 3.0, making it easy to shuttle drives back and forth. Fill them with data quickly with Thunderbolt, and then connect them to just about any computer using USB.
