G-Technology G-RAID Thunderbolt 3 Overview

Designed for demanding applications and multi-stream HD, 2K, 4K, and HDR workflows, the G-RAID 12TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from G-Technology provides up to 12TB of enterprise-class storage that is made up of two 6TB 7200 rpm 3.5" hard drives and is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one USB 3.1 (USB 3.1 Gen 2) port, and one HDMI port. While one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports is used to interface with your host system at speeds of up to 440 MB/s, the other can be used to daisy chain up to five additional devices to your G-RAID. If your system doesn't have Thunderbolt 3, you can use the 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 port, while the HDMI port supports HDCP 2.2, HDR, and 4K/60 fps video passthrough. For those who wish to use this G-RAID with their USB Type-A system, a USB Type-C to Type-A cable is included that supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 (USB 3.1 Gen 2), 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1), and 480 Mb/s USB 2.0.

The dual drive bays of this G-RAID support hardware-controlled RAID 0 and RAID 1. RAID 0 stripes the two drives together, providing enhanced read and write speeds, but no data redundancy, while RAID 1 mirrors the content of one drive to the other, providing 1:1 data redundancy at the cost of performance. For those who do not need the benefits of a RAID, JBOD is also supported.

The G-RAID 12TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array comes formatted for macOS 10.12+. After a simple reformat, it may also be used with Windows 8.1 and 10. Also included is a 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt cable, an AC power adapter, and a power cable. Protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

Yes, however you would need the thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter, and an additional thunderbolt 2 cable to make it possible.

since this drive won’t approach anything close to the thunderbolt 3 speed, would it be the same if i buy this same drive but with TB2 port (has the same speed)?
Asked by: francisca
It would make sense to buy the G-Technology G-RAID 12TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array (2 x 6TB). Do not buy the the model with Thunderbolt 2. If you're planning to use RAID 0 (striping), you're going to see some speed increase with the Thunderbolt 3 model.
