LaCie unleashes external storage solution with 1.3GB/s read speed

LaCie, a subsidiary of Seagate Technology, this week introduced the world’s fastest consumer-class external storage solution that will allow to edit ultra-high-definition video in the field. The new LaCie Little Big Disk features Thunderbolt 2 interface and read speed of up to whopping 1375MB/s. As usual, the speed comes at a price.

LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 features two 500GB solid-state drives with PCI Express interface inside that work in RAID 0 mode and can provide read performance of up to 1375MB/s and write performance of up to 1180MB/s when the solution is plugged to a MacBook Pro or a Mac Pro with Thunderbolt 2 interface. Such data transfer rates are enough for editing 4K video in the field, but two of LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 storage solutions can also work in parallel to deliver whopping 2600MB/s read performance.

In a bid to ensure rock-solid stability, LaCie had to organize proper heat dissipation for the SSDs inside the case. The company added two heat–dissipating aluminum plates in addition to a larger, thermo-regulated fan. This means that the fan only turns on when necessary, and when it does, it produces nearly zero noise, according to the company
