The WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo system which surfaced at the Macworld iWorld 2011, aims to serve professionals with huge storage requirements. As the company suggests, this dual drive storage gadget has hopped onto the scene to deliver enhanced speed that will boost the owner’s workflow.
The Thunderbolt apparently produces about 10 gigabits per second of throughput on individual channels and in both the directions. The system provides fast read and write speeds when indulging in heavy duty work such as 3D rendering, video editing and others. Additionally, the device is said to facilitate speedy sharing like taking less than 30 seconds to transfer a standard size full length HD movie.
“Thunderbolt technology offers the speed needed for creative professionals and enthusiasts who produce, edit, or need quick access to large files, including HD video,” shares Jody Bradshaw, general manager of WD’s consumer storage solutions. “During the demonstration, twin Thunderbolt ports show amazing flexibility while allowing daisy-chaining of up to six My Book Thunderbolt Duo systems or other high performance peripherals for an enhanced workflow process. The combination of storage, backup, and speed could make the My Book Thunderbolt Duo the only drive a creative pro would ever need.
Moreover, audiophiles can supposedly create a back up of approximately 8,600 hours of music in about 10 minutes. As for the precise details on the speed facilitated by the device, potential users will have to wait for the official launch.
The WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo release date and price information have not been revealed by the company.
