Usb3. 1TB capacity.

240MB/sec read, 160MB/sec write.

Heck, that's a bargain compared to what an Avid 9GB drive cost when it came out.

Can you imagine what five of them in a RAID 0 TBolt box would do. Crazy speed for crazy money.

[Michael Gissing] "Crazy speed for crazy money."

In a crazy form factor.

A 5TB TBolt to usb3 hub that fits in the palm of your hand good enough for a multicam or single stream uncompressed HD online.

You could probably be fine with a 422 multicam on just one of them.

Weird.

I was assuming someone would get naked drives or remove them from the USB3 enclosures and rehouse as a TBolt RAID. I know some here aren't keen on such build your own projects but my nerdy 19 yo stepson would think such a project is better than sex.

Can you do that with a thumb drive? It's just a chip soldiered to a USB motherboard, or am I mistaken?

Put down the soldering iron Jeremy. OCZ has done it for you. A 3.2 terrabyte PCIe slot RAID drive with read/write speeds you will drool over. Perfect for editing high frame rate 3D 8k raw.

I must be must be a goof.

I know there are multiple ways to get super fast storage on to PCIe cards, TBolt enclosures and otherwise.

I thought it was pretty cool that's 1TB flash drive that I can stick on my key ring will allow a multicam edit at 100+ MB/sec.

No power, no fan, no enclosures, just a USB stick.

Apparently, I'm easily impressed.

8k raw 3d? Meh. :)

mmm... R-Mags. I replaced a drive in one once, mainly because they didn't make them anymore at the time and reconditioned units were about a billion dollars. The actual drive was literally the size, and close to the weight, of a brick. :-) Fun! But hey, the technology was good enough for B-52 Bombers (or something like that...) so...

When we were using SCSI Seagate Barracudas we used to cost it at about £1000 per gig....those were the days!!!

I had a 64GB tower that was the first shared tower for multiple editors. It took two of us to carry it up the stairs it weighed so much.

It was a big deal when promax started selling SCSI enclosures where you could swap the drives.

We could actually load drive sets for different jobs and move the drives to different rooms.

It was a revelation.

And then firewire drives came along and killed it all.

I don't know if it's a good thing when you can accidentally run your documentary through the wash.

It could give new meaning to Bleach Bypass.

And the dog can really eat your feature film too.

And instantly turn any movie in to a p.o.s., suddenly and without warning.

It certainly would make it less likely for someone to steal the card with its new "protective" coating.
