Areca ARC-4883T2 Thunderbolt 2 to 12Gb/s SAS RAID Controller



ARC-4883T2 is the most complete Thunderbolt 2 to 12Gb/s SAS box with RAID control capabilities solution for both PC and Mac. ARC-4883T2 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for connecting to any Thunderbolt 2-enabled host such as the new Mac Pro, and offers an additional Thunderbolt 2 port for daisy-chaining other peripherals. ARC-4883T2 incorporated on-board dual core 1200Mhz RAID-On- Chip and with 2GB DDR3-1866 memory to deliver true high performance hardware RAID protection against drive failure. This combination helps to provide a high performance storage device perfect for the video editor working with Real time multi-stream HD and 4K workflows. It runs efficiently without disruption or major drops in performance to meet the requirements of 4K data workflow. It is so quick it allows for 4K displays at the same time as daisy chaining ARC-4883T2 and doing a simultaneous 4K output and file transfers while maintaining maximum throughput.
