All hail the new SanDisk SSD. With the introduction of the PRO-G40 SSD, Western Digital has increased the selection of premium SanDisk Professional goods it offers.
The brand-new SSD from the corporation works with Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectors. Additionally, it is Western Digital’s most robust product and has an IP68 certification.
With read and write speeds of 2700MB/s, it is also the fastest SanDisk model to ever hit the market. This drive should be able to handle even the most demanding tasks at these rates. Moving 50GB via Thunderbolt 3 in less than 30 seconds.
The new SanDisk SSD: strong, adaptable, and durable
The new PRO-G40 is made with adaptability, toughness, and raw performance in mind. It is intended for a variety of professional use cases.
Working across a variety of devices is made simple by dual-mode compatibility with Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) and USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) hosts. When recording directly to the SSD from a camera or editing video on a computer, there is no need to move between devices.
The Pro-G40 SSD’s robustness is another standout feature. According to its IP68 certification, it can tolerate sand and mud and can last up to 30 minutes under 1.5 meters of water. The drive also has a structure that is crush-resistant up to 4000 pounds. It can withstand drops of up to 3 meters. This very tough drive’s design makes it able to withstand even the worst weather.
This WD PRO-G40 is also incredibly quick when compared to other well-known SSDs. Maximum read and write speeds for the SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD V2 are 2000 MB/s. For the Samsung T7 SSD, they are around 1000 MB/s. And for the Seagate Fast SSD, they are about 440 MB/s.
The new PRO-G40 SSD is now offered in 1TB and 2TB capacities. It comes with a five-year limited warranty for £415 / $380 (TechRadar Pro is awaiting confirmation of pricing for Australian clients). Sounds incredible, right? Like we said, all hail the new SanDisk SSD.
