d2 THUNDERBOLT 3Thunderbolt 3: Power and Versatility
From a single, mighty port, you get astonishing bandwidth with the versatility of the USB-C industry standard. For the LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 3, the result is performance up to 240MB/s4 for cutting-edge creative workflows, the widest compatibility, and time-saving device configurations.
Faster transfers mean less time moving files from camera cards into Adobe® Lightroom—and more time filling camera cards with new photos and footage.
It's even possible to power a compatible laptop5 through a USB-C (Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3.1) port. That’s one less cable cluttering up your desktop.
Thanks to dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can daisy chain dual 4K displays, a single 5K display, or up to six total LaCie d2 drives—all through a single cable connected to your computer.

Macs with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 ports can experience high-end transfer rates with LaCie Thunderbolt 3 professional solutions.
