In addition to using the industry standard connector, Thunderbolt 3 delivers 4x the performance of Thunderbolt and almost 8x the performance of USB 3.1 Gen 1. However, there continues to be strong demand for Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 peripherals based on the mDP connector. The T3T connects these peripherals to Thunderbolt 3 computers, giving users the option and peace of mind to maintain or upgrade equipment at their convenience.

“Akitio has always been at the forefront of creating innovative Thunderbolt products that meet the demanding requirements of gamers, content creators and media professionals.” said Richard Wright, Vice President of Akitio. “The T3T is Akitio’s commitment to all Thunderbolt users that they have full control over their workflow investment while giving them the opportunity to mix and match the latest Thunderbolt 3 computers with existing Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 devices.”

Akitio has a proven line up of Thunderbolt products including the latest generation Thunderbolt 3. Akitio was the first company to deliver a Thunderbolt 3 external storage product - the Thunder3 Duo Pro. Akitio also developed the Thunder3 PCIe SSD, the world’s fastest direct attach storage device delivering jaw-dropping speeds of up to 2.5GB/second through a 1.2TB Intel® 750 Series PCIe SSD. Akitio has also developed the Thunder3 Quad, a 4-bay RAID storage drive that can accommodate four 8TB HDDs. The Quad can also be used with 2.5” HDD’s or SSD’s.

The T3T will be available in Q2 this year for $69 through Amazon and other Akitio resellers.
