OWC Thunderblade Thunderbolt 3 SSD: Overview

OWC Thunderblade

MPG tested the 8TB OWC Thunderblade Thunderbolt 3 SSD. Available in 1/2/4/8TB configurations.

Late 2018 brings a revised OWC Thunderblade Thunderbolt 3 SSD with improved performance and reduce thermal characteristics.

OWC ThunderBlade Gen 2 Keeps Creative Teams on Track

Ultra High-Performance Thunderbolt™ 3 storage solution now offers a lower price point and even better performance.

Woodstock, IL – January 29, 2019 - OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, has released the second generation of their super-fast ThunderBlade external SSD, with a lower price point and improved performance. For creative professionals and prosumers who work to capture and process 4K or 8K video, the updated ThunderBlade Gen 2 can be the difference between staying under budget and on-schedule on a project - or not.

The new ThunderBlade is stackable and runs cooler than the previous iteration, while still maintaining a near-silent environment with its fanless operation, all factors that can be critical in an operation on the go or in a tight space. With dual Thunderbolt 3 ports users can daisy-chain up to five additional ThunderBlades, and by connecting more than one drive with SoftRAID, speeds can be increased up to 3800MB/s. The newest ThunderBlade can complete a 1TB content transfer in under four-and-a-half minutes.

Wyatt Cagle, Digital Imaging Technician (DIT) for the upcoming feature film “Playing God” had this to say regarding the OWC ThunderBlade’s crucial role in production: “The [two] ThunderBlades are our transfer drives because they’re so fast. Within minutes I’ve got everything logged and ready for the editor. We’re shooting stuff in the morning, the editor is editing it in the afternoon, and the director is seeing something sometimes that night. Without that speed, without the ThunderBlades, we couldn’t do that.”

Whether using a single ThunderBlade on the road or daisy-chaining up to six units in production space for up to 48TB of the fastest transfer speeds OWC has ever produced, users can count on ThunderBlade to help them get their dailies daily, providing safe, creative content management and huge time and money savings in production budgets.

The OWC ThunderBlade comes with a Thunderbolt 3 cable included and is backed by OWC’s 3-year warranty. It is available now at MacSales.com and other online and storefront retailers:

1.0TB OWC SKU: OWCTB3TBV4T01 $799.00
2.0TB OWC SKU: OWCTB3TBV4T02 $1,199.00
4.0TB OWC SKU: OWCTB3TBV4T04 $1,899.00
8.0TB OWC SKU: OWCTB3TBV4T08 $3,499.00

OWC ThunderBlade: cooler, faster and an even better value.
