The OWC Thunderblade 4 ships in about 11 days, according to the OWC / MacSales.com web site.

From the cutaway view below, it seems that the Thunderblade "4" is aptly named for its 4-blade internal 4-way striped RAID. This is how it maxes-out the Thunderbolt 3 bus for reads, and mostly saturates the TB3 bus for writes.
MPG hopes to test a pair of ThunderBlade 4 units attached to the dual Thunderbolt 3 busses on the iMac Pro, assuming they can be had before the loaner iMac Pro has to be returned.
