LaCie has teamed up with Seagate Technology to produce a new LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt USB-C drive and d2 storage solution, compatible with Apple's latest generation of Thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pros.

The drives, which are popular among photographers and videographers, aim to help create more efficient ways to manage large data quantities with "more speed, higher capacity and better compatibility." 

The Rugged Thunderbolt drive combines an established design with USB-C connectivity and Seagate BarraCuda hard drives. It has mobile HDD capacity of up to 5 terabytes and will also be available in a 1-terabyte solid-state model that LaCie is touting as 30 percent faster than the previous generation at speeds of up to 510 megabytes per second. The company claims that users can transfer 100GB of content in roughly 3 minutes.

The units have a rugged build —shock, dust and water resistant —and will be available by the end of March in 2TB, 4TB and 5TB HDD and 500 GB and 1 TB SSD starting at $249.99. 

Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports allow users to daisy chain dual 4K displays, a single 5K display or up to six LaCie d2 drives. It's also possible to power the latest MacBOok Pro through its USB-C port. 

The drive is coming in 6TN, 8TB and 10TB and start at $429.99. They're expected to ship this quarter.
