Silicon Power have unleashed their first external SSD, the Bolt B80. Featuring an innovative and futuristic design, the B80 is not only stylish and compact, but also able to deliver impressive performance for an external hard drive.

Silicon Power have included IP68 rating, meaning this portable SSD is not only waterproof, but also dustproof.




The Bolt B80 will be available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB, SP are yet to release a price or release date.
