LaCie Shows Off 'Worlds Fastest Portable Storage'

CES is always good for firsts and fastests. By the end of the week, the show will have given us the world's fastest, the world's biggest, and the world's smallest across a range of product categories. LaCie is kicking things off today with the unveiling of its Little Big Disk, which it claims is the world's fastest portable storage solution.

 

The Little Big Disk is powered by a set of 500 GB PCIe Gen 2 SSDs in RAID 0 and Intel's Thunderbolt 2 technology. The drive delivers speeds of up to 1275 MB/s and is capable of streaming and edition 4K or 3D video, allowing users to work directly from RAW.

 

Pricing for the drive has not yet been announced, but we'll keep you posted on that front (hint: it probably won't be cheap). Availability is set for sometime this quarter, though we have nothing more specific than that right now.

    It's the first device (non apple) to use PCI Express Storage. These Lacie units come with SSD's already installed. Expect prices to be anywhere from $1500 to $2000 since it has 2X 512GB Samsung SSD's in them.
