Plugable has introduced a new Thunderbolt 3 1TB external NVMe SSD drive (TBT3-NVME1TB) offering speeds of up to 2400+ MB/sec read and 1800+ MB/sec write, all without the need for an external power connection. The SSD drive supports macOS Sierra and later, Windows 10, 8.1, 7 although the drive supports Linux “Thunderbolt 3 Linux support varies at this time”, says Plugable. Check out the promotional video below to learn more about the new portable 1TB NVMe Solid State Drive with integrated 40Gbps TBT3 cable.
“Intel Thunderbolt 3 technology offers blistering transfer speeds up to 40Gbps and is the perfect connection to take advantage of new storage technologies. Unlike traditional external storage solutions that are limited by the SATA III interface, NVMe technology allows solid state media to interface directly with your CPU via PCI Express, allowing vastly improved performance as well as lower latency and reduced CPU usage. With the TBT3-NVME1TB external solid state drive, you can experience performance like never before, often as fast (or faster!) than your computer’s built-in storage, and roughly 5x faster than traditional SATA III solid state drives connected with USB 3.1 Gen 2.”
