As we broke last night, Apple is now carrying Thunderbolt parts. The Pegasus RAID units just showed up but we noticed something a little odd:
Interesting combo. Currently the Mac Pro doesn’t have a Thunderbolt port.
So yeah, Apple art team either jumped the gun, used the wrong equipment, or pre-announced the new Mac Pros. We were hoping for a slight redesign which doesn’t look to be the case (see what I did there?)…
The new Thunderbolt RAID systems include the Promise Pegasus R4 in 4x1TB($999) and 4x2TB ($1499) capacities and the Promise Pegasus R6 in 6x1TB ($1499) and6x2TB ($1999) capacities. The R4 offers bandwidth of over 500 MB/sec, while the R6 offers over 800 MB/sec.
