Thunder T11Silicon Power has announces the Thunder T11 solid state drive. The device is certified by both Intel and Apple, allowing customers to use it on a Thunderbolt-equipped Windows-based or Mac OS system.

“Thunderbolt technology can come in small palm size packages for true mobility,” said Jason Ziller, Intel’s Director of Thunderbolt Marketing. “We are pleased with Silicon Power’s support for Thunderbolt technology and bringing Thunderbolt mobile storage to the next level for professional consumers.”

Silicon Power believes that the Thunder T11 is the lightest and smallest Thunderbolt-based SSD on the market, measuring 74 x 62 x 15 mm and weighing a mere 0.1433 pounds. The drive arrives only in a 120 GB capacity, encased in a silver aluminum casing with “an incredible cooling system.” And because it’s based on NAND Flash, the drive should be completely noise free.

“Featuring extremely small and featherweight design, Thunder T11 is half the size of ordinary storage devices and only weighs 65g,” reads the company press release. “Moreover, Thunder T11’s Aluminum enclosure is designed to protect your files at a fraction of the weight but more importantly it offers an incredible cooling effect. In addition, Thunder T11 is entirely silent during the operation, which is particularly critical to users who work in a noise-sensitive environment.”

Despite the theoretical 10 Gb/s connection speed, the new Thunderbolt drive has read speeds of up to 380 MB/s and write speeds of up to 340 MB/s. Other features include a bus-powered design (Thunderbolt provides the power), support for Windows 8/7/XP, support for Mac OS 10.3.x or later, a three year warranty, and certification for CE, FCC, BSMI and a few others.

The pricing and availability weren’t provided at this time.
