I’ve just graduated into the world of Thunderbolt 3 with a new 2018 Mac Mini, but I’ve got several old school 3 TB drives, standard issue 7200 RPM 3.5, notably in my 3,1 Mac Pro.

I’m considering an OWC empty four bay Thunderbolt 3 external drive enclosure, and I know the top speed specs for Thunderbolt 3 do not apply if I put these useful but pokey spinning platters in the chassis. 

Question: what kind of read speed might I reasonably expect from old platters in a T3 chassis? This would be for VSL sample playback.
