Western Digital – SanDisk Professional PRO-G40 SSD
Whether for a business professional or a creative pro, the Western Digital SanDisk PRO-G40 SSD is a simple, flexible solution that offers great efficiency to get the job done. Professionals who are ingesting, editing, rendering, and transferring large amounts of mission-critical content need portable storage that is powerful enough to eliminate unnecessary downtime, and durable enough to handle heavy usage.
The versatility of both Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface compatibility when collaborating eliminates the need to have two different drives, one for each interface. The Western Digital SanDisk PRO-G40 SSD offers extreme speed and durability for real-time editing 4K/8K straight off the drive, smooth AR/VR rendering or transferring daily workloads in quickly.
- Dual-mode compatibility with both Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps) and USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) hosts through a single port makes collaboration across devices easier for maximized efficiency.
- The new offering boasts super-fast speeds of up to 2700 MB/s read and 1900 MB/s write with a Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps) interface. Move 50 GB in 30 seconds or less and power through even the most demanding workloads. The cool aluminium core pulls heat away from the internal drive to help maintain super-fast transfer speeds over time.
- The PRO-G40 SSD has a pro-grade enclosure that is ready for any adventure and delivers a premium strength you can feel.
