New model supplements original with 128GB

Storage solutions manufacturer Akitio today announced the release of the company's new 256GB one-bay, bus-powered "Neutrino" Thunderbolt storage solution. Akitio's new larger-capacity device is a follow-up to the company's successful 120GB SSD solution, which was previously launched in 2012.

By incorporating a Thunderbolt connection with an SSD and a high performance SATA controller, Akitio is able to obtain data transfer speeds of up to 464MB per second, making it what the company calls the "fastest one-bay, bus-powered external storage device on the market." The Neutrino comes bundled with a Thunderbolt cable.

Akitio's 256 GB Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition is available for purchase at an retail price of $340 and up (depending on configuration) and can be found at, as well as major retailers.
