Thunderbolt 2 worth the extra cash compared to Thunderbolt 1?
on Dec 5, 2015 at 5:59:59 pm

I just bought a new mac pro for professionel video editing, including after effects design/animations.
I need external storage and found some decently priced alternatives in Thunderbolt 1
Since the mac pro offers Thunderbolt 2 I was wondering if it was worth the extra cash to buy Thunderbolt 2 drives.

Thoughts and recommendations?

Thx

Thx

Do you think or have you experienced the difference between the 2 and is it worth the price diff: right now I can get Lacie Rugged 1TB Thblt 1 for $179 when the Thblt 2 start at $400.

won't you make that money back the first day that you use them ?
Does $200 make a difference in any professional project ?

with this reasoning I invested in a new imac 27 i5, then with the same reasoning I reailzed should get the i7 version so I returned the imac and got the i7, and 2 days later I went with a new mac pro!!
so I need to stop the spending somewhere :-)

So, did you or not work with T1 and T2?

The Thunderbolt2 drives will run faster. BUT! I do not know how big of a difference it will make. I have been working with raw R3D files and its no speed issues on Thunderbolt1 as far as I'm concerned. I must address that my projects are never more than 10 minutes long, and usually its a single timeline.

I would say it depends on what you are working with. If you are working with huge file sizes, multicam, and so on, Thunderbolt2 might be a big difference.

If you are more into smaller projects like promotial videos, corporate stuff and music videos I would guess Thunderbolt1 will be good enough. Its been working like a charm for me at least!
