Like a concept car, the LaCie Chromé defines the future for its class. A trophy for tech connoisseurs, it fuses forward-thinking technology with a startling, visionary design from Neil Poulton. As timeless as it is ahead of its time.
Really Fast for the Real World
To squeeze the most out of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 potential, the LaCie Chromé features a pair of 500GB M.2 SATA SSDs in RAID 0. Working together, these components deliver speeds of up to 940 MB/s* for serious bandwidth-intensive applications.
With this performance, you can ingest two hours of 4K GoPro footage in a little over one minute**. Architectural and 3D modeling tasks become smoother and much faster. And it’s possible to edit hi-res video without first needing to convert footage to a lower resolution.
USB 3.1 Gen 2: Not Just New. The Future.
This innovative new interface is more than just a doubling of USB 3.0 theoretical speeds to 10 Gb/s***. Together, the new USB-C connector and USB 3.1 Gen 2 are a significant step forward for usability and compatibility.
No up/down or left/right orientation means there's no wrong way to connect the USB-C cable.
Works with Next-Gen Computers
With USB-C, the connector of the future, you're ready for next-generation computers.
Works with PC & Mac
Connect to existing USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 computers using the included USB-C to USB adapter cable.
Designed for Performance
The LaCie Chromé 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 aluminium blocks for rigid durability and heat dissipation.
Innovative Cooling System
Effective cooling helps to ensure long-term component health. A blower introduces cool air, and a heat sink draws hot air away from the SSDs.
Magnetized Cable Door
Stays closed during normal use to conceal interface and power supply ports, but swings open to enable easy access.
Designed to Shine
The LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive's unique, minimalist style reflects practical design. The all-aluminum enclosure is lightweight but also feels sturdy and substantial in your hands. Rounded corners, high-polish beveled edges, and a sandblast finish combine to form the distinctly Porsche Design contemporary style.
- Inspired by Greatness,
Destined for Your Desktop
The elevated form is an homage to a 1935 bronze statue from Constantin Brâncuși, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century.
- Polished to Perfection
Once machined, the enclosure is hand assembled, then chromed to a flawless, arresting mirror polish.
- Stands Out from the Crowd
Forged from solid chromed zinc, the stand securely docks the product with powerful neodymium magnets — and detaches for easy transport.
