Like a concept car, the LaCie Chromé defines the future for its class. A trophy for tech connoisseurs, it fuses forward-thinking technology with a startling, visionary design from Neil Poulton. As timeless as it is ahead of its time.
To squeeze the most out of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 potential, the LaCie Chromé features a pair of 500GB M.2 SATA SSDs in RAID 0. Working together, these components deliver speeds of up to 940 MB/s* for serious bandwidth-intensive applications.With this performance, you can ingest two hours of 4K GoPro® footage in a little over one minute. Architectural and 3D modeling tasks become smoother and much faster. And it's possible to edit hi-res video without first needing to convert footage to a lower resolution.
This innovative new interface is more than just a doubling of USB 3.0 theoretical speeds to 10 Gb/s. Together, the new USB-C connector and USB 3.1 Gen 2 are a significant step forward for usability and compatibility.
No up/down or left/right orientation means there's no wrong way to connect the USB-C cable.
With USB-C, the connector of the future, you're ready for next-generation computers.
Connect to existing USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 computers using the included USB-C to USB adapter cable.
Designed for Performance
The LaCie Chromé is brilliantly engineered for the long term - from the enclosure to the internal components - to endure intensive storage tasks.
"The LaCie Chromé is a concept reduced to its essence: a rectangle tilted onto its corner, melting into its base like quicksilver." - Neil Poulton, industrial designer
The elevated form is an homage to a 1935 bronze statue from Constantin Brâncu?i, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century.
Once machined, the enclosure is hand assembled, then chromed to a flawless, arresting mirror polish.
Forged from solid chromed zinc, the stand securely docks the product with powerful neodymium magnets - and detaches for easy transport.
