We’ve been getting some questions regarding a comparison between the new Avid Thunderbolt Native and Apollo Thunderbolt. So here’s a chart based on the basic cost and performance data. Note prices may vary.
What is interesting is how close they are on price, of course you can see how great a deal it is if you take the hardware upgrade option.
