The new Western Digital's My Passport SSD is now coming in a 4TB capacity with a price of $680, offering up to 1050MB/sec (1.05GB/sec) reads and up to 1000MB/sec (1GB/sec) writes.

The new Western Digital's My Passport SSD will work with the new next-gen consoles as well, but you won't get full compatibility on them so be careful with purchasing these new drives for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S just for now. We are looking at the Western Digital's My Passport SSD coming with shock and vibration resistance, in color options that include gray, blue, red, gold, and silver.

We can expect the new Western Digital's My Passport SSD to be available by the end of March for $680.
