G-Technology External HDD Overview

Designed for demanding applications and multi-stream HD, 2K, 4K, and HDR workflows, the G-RAID 28TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from G-Technology provides up to 28TB of enterprise-class storage that is made up of two 14TB 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 500 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 28TB 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.

I purchased two of these and plan to run one drive in Raid 0 and one drive in Raid 1 and daisy chain them with a thunderbolt 3 connection. Does anyone know if this will slow down the performance on the Raid 0 drive?
Asked by: Michael
It will not slow anything down, Thunderbolt 3 has plenty of bandwidth left even using two of them in RAID 0 or RAID 1.

Why does the info state this: Thunderbolt 3 ports is used to interface with your host system at speeds of up to 480 MB/s," this seems very slow for Thunderbolt 3? The Promise Pegasus 3 claims speeds up to 2700mb/s, and then this write up claims faster speeds for USB 3.1. This is confusing copy and some clarification would be nice.
