LaCie has unveiled it's latest for the portable storage world, with the storage giant unveiling its new 2big Dock, a new external storage product aimed at professionals who need to storage lots of data, with fast speeds for backups and off-system storage.

LaCie's big selling point on the 2big Dock is that it can storage up to 20TB worth of HDDs, which the company says is enough space for 650 hours of 4K 30FPS video, or over 200,000 RAW images. The new LaCie 2big Dock features dual Thunderbolt 3 connectivity through USB-C, while there are some storage ports on the front for USB, a SD card reader and even a Compact Flash Card reader slot.

On the back, we have dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, a single USB 3.1 port, and a freakin' DisplayPort connector that lets you plug in a 4K-capable display.

The drive is capable of 440MB/sec, so most consumer 2.5-inch SSDs can throw 500MB/sec - meeting the fastest 440MB/sec that LaCie's new 2big Dock can handle. As for price, that's something that LaCie will unveil in a couple of months time.
