Redmond, Wash. - Nov. 12, 2019 - Plugable, the leading developer of USB, Thunderbolt, Bluetooth and power-related devices, launches the Plugable Thunderbolt 3 NVMe External SSD, a powerful solid state drive that offers creators up to 1 TB or 2TB of extra storage and rapid speeds of up to 2800 MB/sec read and 1800 MB/sec write, all without the need for an external power connection. With a 1TB model available for $299 and a 2TB model available for $499, the Plugable drive is among the fastest portable external SSDs you can buy today.
The Plugable drive is perfect for creators like film producers and videographers who require fast scratch storage, regularly conduct large file transfers of formats like 4K, and need maximum data transfer speeds to keep their projects moving forward. These high capacity drives give you more space for more footage. The Plugable 1TB drive is capable of storing 155 minutes of ProRes 422 HQ 4K video or 175 minutes of DnXHR HQ 4K video.
Through the combined power of Thunderbolt 3 and NVMe technologies, the Plugable drive surpasses the limitations of traditional SATA III SSDs and interfaces directly with CPUs via PCI Express, resulting in rapid performance, lower latency, and reduced CPU usage.
