New Voluminous External SSDs with Thunderbolt Ports from LaCie

LaCie has recently announced the release of two external SSD models which are differentiated by an extraordinary design. The upcoming drives are codenamed LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt and will be delivered in two capacity variations: 512 GB and 1 TB. Last year the manufacturer introduced a similar model line but with smaller capacity (up to 240 GB) and different interface (SATA II).



New LaCie LittleBig Disk Thunderbolt drives feature SATA III interface and are based on two 2.5-inch SSDs. Those drives might be combined into different RAID configurations (RAID 0, 1).
