How is the performance supposed to be different than the cheaper "Enterprise class" version of the same drive?
Asked by: Andrew
same performance, no daisy chaining with USB-C. Thunderbolt drive gives you daisy chaining + the pro blade slot. if you dont daisy chain or need the pro blade slot, the USB-C only drive is more than enough.

OK, at one point you're talking about 40Gb/s, and then 250 Mb/s r/w speeds. I don't get how they reconcile?
Asked by: Roderick
Thunderbolts 3 and 4 have a 40Gbps pipe. You can daisy chain up to 5 additional devices and all those devices use that 40Gbps pipe. The Pro-blade also gets 1000MB/s, so it uses more of that performance too. Interface vs disk speed is tricky stuff!
