LaCie Little Big Disk   (Source: LaCie)
LaCie's Little Big Disk brings a whole bunch of new technology in a tiny little package

Well, that didn't take long -- earlier today, Intel made its Thunderbolt I/O technology official and Apple launched new MacBook Pros that support the 10Gbps interface. Now, LaCie has announced its "Little Big Disk" which supports Thunderbolt. 

LaCie has been working with Thunderbolt for the past year, and showcased a storage prototype with 700MB/sec transfer speeds (all while daisy-chained between a computer and monitor) at IDF 2010. Now, the production Little Big Disk is ready to go and supports two channels with 10Gb/sec of data flowing both ways per channel (all within a single cable). 

"Thunderbolt technology is a breakthrough in I/O technology and represents the future of mobile computing. Soon you will be able to carry workstation-class power and functionality in compact devices," said Philippe Spruch, Chairman and General Manager, LaCie. "LaCie is excited to be one of the first to deliver Thunderbolt technology with the LaCie Little Big Disk."   

The Little Big Disk weighs in a svelte 1.5 pounds and comes equipped with two 250GB Intel 510 Series solid state drives (which haven't even been officially announced yet). 

According to VR Zone, the Intel 510 Series SSDs have maximum read speeds of 470MB/sec and maximum writes of 315MB/sec. Interestingly, the SSDs are still built in 34nm NAND flash technology. The drives will be available in 120GB ($280) and 250GB ($580) capacities when they are officially launched on March 1. 

As for LaCie's Little Big Disk, it will be available later this summer at an undisclosed price.
