Samsung Introduces The Very First NVMe-based Portable SSD

Imagine transferring a 20GB file in a matter of 12 seconds. Well, that’s the beauty of Samsung’s new NVMe-based Portable SSD which is going to save us all a load of time.

Samsung launched the world’s first NVMe-based portable solid state drive, the Portable SSD X5. It’s backed up by a bandwidth of 40Gbps offered by Thunderbolt 3 technology, allowing the X5 to read at a speed rate of 2,800 MB/s and write speeds of 2,300MB/s.

The drive also features a shock-resistant internal frame that is housed in a metal casing designed to survive falls from up to almost 7 feet. The integrated Dynamic Thermal Guard technology and built-in heatsink will keep the X5 cool no matter how much the workload is.
