Thunder3 Duo Pro
External Thunderbolt 3 Storage Solution

Thunderbolt 3 / SATA 6.0GB/s / DisplayPort
AKiTiO's High Performance Dual Bay Storage Enclosure for Windows
External Thunderbolt™ 3 & USB 3.1 Gen 1 Storage Solution
This dual bay RAID storage enclosure can reach data transfer speeds of up to 785 MB per second while simultaneously providing two 4K video signal streams. For added convenience and flexibility, the AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro can accommodate both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives. It is completely "tool-less", so drives can be easily installed or uninstalled
Thunderbolt™ 3
Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all - delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. For the first time, one computer port connects to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices. A single cable now provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power to bus-powered devices.

The second Thunderbolt 3 port on the AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro operates the same as a Thunderbolt 3 computer port by supporting Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.
USB 3.1 Gen 1
To assure backwards compatibility with systems that only offer USB connectivity, the AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro also comes with a SuperSpeed USB Type-B port. This interface is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 or USB 3.0 at speeds of up to 5 Gbps.
DisplayPort
The dedicated DisplayPort connector makes it easy to connect an additional monitor to extend your workspace. This video output capability requires a Thunderbolt 3 connection to the computer and will free up the second Thunderbolt 3 port for Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.
Optimized for every environment
With the built-in hardware RAID controller, the choice is all yours! You can mirror the drives with RAID 1 as a reliable backup for your important data, you can stripe the drives with RAID 0 for optimal performance and maximum speed or you can select SPAN to combine the drives for extra large storage capacities.
OS independent RAID set
A big advantage of the built-in hardware RAID controller is that the RAID set is OS independent, so the storage drive can be moved from one system to the other with ease. Because the RAID set is managed inside the AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro, there is nothing else do be set up on the computer.
2-Lane PCIe to SATA controller
The PCIe to SATA controller makes use of two PCIe lanes. When using Non-RAID and Thunderbolt, this makes it possible for a single SSD to run at full SATA 6Gb/s speeds and deliver transfer rates in read over 500MB/s.
Compatible with Thunderbolt 3 and USB computers
The AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro was designed for both Thunderbolt 3 and USB computers. The device can be connected via Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) or USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Type-B) interfaces.
Tool-less drive installation
For added convenience and flexibility, the AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro can accommodate both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives. The assembly is completely tool-less, so drives can be easily installed or uninstalled no matter where you are.
Noiseless 0dB operation
For quiet environments, the built-in fan can be turned off completely. The fan switch is accessible from the outside, so the enclosure does not have to be opened. In combination with solid state drives (SSD's), this will result in a completely noiseless storage solution.

Notes

  • This Thunderbolt product is not compatible with Mac OS X.
  • This product was designed for use with the fan on and passed engineering tests with the fan on. We have added a fan switch that can turn off the fan when a low-noise environment is needed. However, the device should only be used for short periods of time with the fan in the OFF position as prolonged use may cause the device to overheat and this may cause damage to the system, cause issues to data integrity, reduce system reliability and/or shorten the lifespan of the electrical components. For best results, we recommend that the device not be used continuously for more than one hour with the fan in the OFF position.
  • This product has components or design elements that are patented or patent pending.
