The success of your project depends on quick data processing and demands performance and efficiency working with uncompressed, high bandwidth content streams. ThunderBlade delivers the performance to match – capable of unbelievable transfer speeds up to 2800MB/s. And with SoftRAID, two ThunderBlades can reach dizzying heights up to 3800MB/s.
Don't Take Our Word for It
ThunderBlade continues to impress audio and video experts as an innovative and revolutionary drive. ThunderBlade recently took home two top awards from the 2019 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas. ThunderBlade received the BaM Award in the “Store” category and was named Future’s Best of Show. Both awards are evaluated by industry experts and recognize innovative technology that delivers real business and creative benefits.

Designed to be rugged and dependable as well as blazing fast, ThunderBlade is equally at home on the road, on set or in the edit suite. It's compact and tough enough to withstand even the roughest treatment in between locations, and it comes complete with its own ballistic hard-shell case for even greater protection. And with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, ThunderBlade fits your workflow daisy-chain perfectly.
