Inspired by the way people create and share data today, this new drive is the company’s most rugged offering to date with a high-level IP68 rating, allowing professionals to immerse themselves in the action wherever their work or vision takes them.
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 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.
“The new PRO-G40 SSD eliminates the problem we have all experienced before: grabbing the wrong USB-C cable or computer for our Thunderbolt 3 or USB devices,” said Hector Sandoval, vice president of product marketing, pricing and programs at Western Digital. “By supporting both interfaces and including a cable that does as well, this drive enables creatives to efficiently collaborate across devices without having to worry about carrying the right gear nor diminishing sustained performance as they continue producing impactful content that powers our world.”
● Dual-mode compatibility with both Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) and USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) hosts through a single port makes collaboration across devices easier for maximized efficiency.
● The new offering boasts super-fast speeds up to 2700MB/s read and 1900MB/s write with a Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) interface. Move 50GB in 30 seconds or less and power through even the most demanding workloads. The cool aluminum 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. Its ultra-rugged design with IP68 dust/water resistance, up to 4000-pound crush resistance, and up to 3-meter drop resistance help withstand the elements in just about every location for ultra-durability.
The PRO-G40 SSD is available now for MSRP $299.99 (1TB) and $449.99 (2TB).
