ThunderBlade™
16.0TB External Solid-State Drive

Mac / PC / Thunderbolt 3
 
 
Faster Than You Can Imagine
 
OWC's extreme performance ThunderBlade might just be the ultimate working drive for media professionals. In terms of pure transfer speed, ThunderBlade is at the absolute cutting edge of possibility.
The Fastest. Period.
In a fast-paced, professional environment, time is money and performance is everything. 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 read & 2450MB/s write. And with SoftRAID, two ThunderBlades can reach dizzying heights up to 3800MB/s.
At Home on the Road.
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.
Quality You Can Trust
Like all OWC drives, ThunderBlade is built to the highest standards of reliability and performance. Because 100% reliability is always the goal, ThunderBlade is rigorously quality tested, and backed by an OWC 3 Year Limited Warranty and 24/7 customer support.
