As shipped

The OWC Thunderblade ships is a Thunderbolt 3 SSD which can be daisy-chained. Like all TB3 devices with dual ports, that means it is required to have its own power supply. The power brick is external which externalizes any heat from the power supply and keeps the SSD itself more compact.

The included (downloadable) SoftRAID software allows configuring the Thunderblade flexibly: individual 1TB volumes, 4TB RAID-0 stripe, 3TB RAID-4/RAID-5 fault tolerance. RAID-10, etc. For most users, a RAID-0 stripe makes the most sense—maximum speed and capacity.
