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 Bolt 3, 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.

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.

Thunderbolt 3

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.

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.


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.
