NAB 2012: WD and Blackmagic Design speed test My Book Thunderbolt Duos

Western Digital were showcasing their recently-launched Thunderbolt drives at NAB 2012, and daisy chained four of them together for a quick speed test using Blackmagic Design’s Disk Speed Test software.

Our photos may be a bit blurry (there was a bit of a scrum on the WD stand – click on the thumbnails below to get a closer look), but if you squint, you’ll see that they’re clocking up a write speed of 524.7 MBps and a read speed of 893.9 MBps, which ain’t too shabby.

The drives themselves are My Book Thunderbolt Duos, which are available in 4TB and 6TB versions (priced around £415 and £475 respectively). They each contain two drives, which can be configured to RAID 0 or RAID 1 as needed. Mac fans will also be pleased to hear that they’re Time Machine compatible straight out of the box. You can get the full spec list on our site.
