Owc Thunderbolt Ii Usb 3.1 Gen I Possess Dock For Mac Pc

The OWC TB2 aluminum USB 3.1 crusade dock is a nifty fanless crusade tool that lets you lot hot-swap, kick too access 2.5-inch too 3.5-inch SATA difficult drives (HDDs) too solid the world drives (SSDs) but like removable retention sticks at the speed of Thunderbolt 2! You tin function ii SATA 6Gb/s drives simultaneously off the OWC crusade dock, either wo 3.5-inch drives or ii 2.5-inch  drives.
As good equally Thunderbolt 2 (a.k.a. TB2), the OWC crusade dock features USB 3.1 Gen 1, making the OWC crusade dock a rattling versatile into plug-and-play storage amongst raw throughput performance.
With the integration of Thunderbolt 2, the OWC crusade dock doesn't endure from autobus saturation that you lot croak amongst fifty-fifty USB 3.0 enclosures when using multiple drives at the same fourth dimension to backup a large library.
The ports on the dorsum of the OWC crusade dock include ii Thunderbolt 2 ports amongst upwards to 20Gbps speeds too 1 USB 3.1 Gen 1 port supported past times ASMedia ASM1153E USB-to-SATA yoke chipsets amongst upwards to speeds of 5Gbps.
the OWC TB2 crusade dock measures xvi cm wide, 8.5 cm high too fifteen cm deep
With the OWC crusade dock, you lot tin do disk intensive computing amongst non-linear video editing software programs such equally dragging multiple clips from multiple drives into the timeline without freezing the arrangement to a painful standstill.
the OWC TB2 crusade dock weighs 1 kg
Better still, you lot tin simultaneously function applications from the drives without worrying nigh loading the autobus or crashing the arrangement cheers to hot swapping software built-in (Thunderbolt connexion only) that lets you lot plug too unplug drives without shutting downward the system.
You tin also the OWC crusade dock equally a bootable tool, allowing you lot to practise a arrangement icon recovery backup on a SATA crusade to clone your computer's difficult crusade then you lot tin restore your personal information too Windows files.
Each bay on the OWC crusade dock has its ain ability switch too LED activeness monitor too you lot tin expand the OWC crusade dock inwards a daisy-chain amongst upwards to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices.
The OWC TB2 crusade dock also integrates a universal auto-switching internal ability supply, which agency you lot purpose whatever three prong or 2 prong air-conditioning ability cable to ability the OWC crusade dock. This swell equally it agency you lot tin ability the OWC crusade dock anywhere inwards the globe via a move adapter without the involve of a bulky air-conditioning adapter (or equally about people telephone vociferation upwards it "wall wart").
You tin function the OWC Thunderbolt 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 crusade dock via a Mac or PC amongst a Thunderbolt or USB 2.0 interface but you lot croak the best functioning if your Mac or PC has Thunderbolt 2 or USB 3.0 interface.
You won't require a driver for Mac OS X but you lot volition involve a driver when connected to a Windows figurer via Thunderbolt connection. There are other software too hardware requirements. The operating arrangement requirement for Thunderbolt is Mac OS X 10.10 or later, or Windows seven SP1 or later. The operating arrangement requirement for USB 3.1 Gen 1 is Mac OS X 10.6 or later, Windows XP or later, too Linux Kernel v. 2.6.31 or later.
Thunderbolt connectivity for OWC Drive Dock is non supported inwards Boot Camp
The OWC crusade dock also supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) which is swell equally it enhances the overall functioning Performance too responsiveness went upwards significantly when I switched to an enclosure that supports UASP. It’s comparable to when I had the crusade connected via Thunderbolt.

The benchmark consequence for a unmarried crusade using Thunderbolt too USB 3.0 is  522 MB/s Read too 477 MB/s Write too 427 MB/s Read too 347 MB/s Write respectively. The benchmark speeds for disk stripping (also known equally breaking upwards a file too spreading the information across all the disk drives inwards a RAID group) via Thunderbolt is 521 MB/s Read too 482 MB/s Write;and 429 MB/s Read too 352 MB/s Write for USB 3.0
When used amongst USB 3.1, UASP allows for faster read/write information speeds than eSATA too definitely much faster than USB 3.0 amongst BOT (Bulk Only Transport). The fast speed is cheers to UASP putting less charge on the CPU, too also cheers to the implementation of the SCSI ascendance develop which allows information transfer inwards both directions dissimilar BOT where information tin alone survive transferred either inwards an IN or OUT direction.
To accept payoff of UASP, your PC hardware, firmware too the software drivers inwards your operating arrangement must back upwards it. If you lot are using Windows 8 too Windows 10, UASP back upwards is built-in. Most manufacturers don't back upwards UASP inwards Windows seven other than ASUS who is the alone manufacturer that supports UASP inwards Windows seven on sure enough Asus motherboards (i.e. Z77-, X79-, Z68-, 990FX/990X/970-) via Asus USB 3.0 Boost application.
