Pull off your ultra high-res projects with the world’s fastest desktop storage. Break open bottlenecks and tighten up 4K–6K video workflows with blistering Thunderbolt 3 speeds and a reliable, new industrial design.
Create at the speed of lightning.
The very fastest I/O.
For the Bolt3, LaCie harnessed the breakthrough performance potential of the Thunderbolt 3 I/O and paired it with the absolute fastest SSDs on the market. With a pair of M.2 PCIe SSDs striped together into a 2TB volume, the result is astonishing speeds of up to 2800MB/s.
For transfers in minutes, not hours.
INGEST 1HR OF FOOTAGE***
That kind of speed slashes time off nearly every task in your post-production workflow. Ingest RAW footage from RED® or Blackmagic® cinema cameras in a fraction of the time. Transcode 4/5/6K footage much faster using Adobe® Premiere® Pro or DaVinci Resolve. Then transfer a terabyte of footage from the Bolt3 to RAID storage—such as the LaCie 12big Thunderbolt 3—in minutes instead of hours.
More speed. More pixels. More possibilities.
The USB-C that does it all.
Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt performance to USB-C connectivity at electrifying speeds of up to 40Gb/s, creating a single compact port that does it all. Thunderbolt 3 permits daisy chaining and provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power.
Compatible with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2
It‘s possible to connect the Bolt3 to devices with previous generations of Thunderbolt. Just use a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (sold separately).
To level up your workspace.
This means you can daisy chain one USB-C (USB 3.1) or up to five Thunderbolt 3 devices, connect dual 4K displays, and even power a compatible laptop**—all through a single USB-C cable connected to your computer. With two 4K displays, you can spread out your workspace by dedicating one display to your timeline and the other to previewing 4K footage, for example. Thunderbolt 3 delivers double the performance and versatility of any other interface.
Built for dependability, from the outside in.
The LaCie Bolt3 is brilliantly engineered for the long term—from the enclosure to the internal components—to endure intensive storage tasks.
Each product is individually Computer Numerical Control machined from solid aluminum blocks for rigid durability and heat dissipation.
Engineered down to the last detail.
"The LaCie Bolt3 is a concept reduced to its essence: a rectangle tilted onto its corner, melting into its base like quicksilver."
– Neil Poulton, industrial designer
Magnetized cable door
Stays closed during normal use to conceal interface and power supply ports, but swings open to enable easy access.
Removable display stand
The stand securely docks the product with powerful neodymium magnets—and detaches for easy transport.

When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes and one terabyte, or TB, equals one thousand billion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and will not be available for data storage.
