Product Overview Samsung Portable SSD X5

Thunderbolt 3 External Storage
Samsung Portable SSD X5 is a revolutionary external storage with integrated cutting-edge NVMe™ and Thunderbolt™ 3 technologies. The X5 is designed for content creators and high-tech professionals who need fast and secure access to data in a lightweight and compact storage solution. Available in capacities of 500GB, 1TB & even an industry leading 2TB.

Its lightning-fast speed, high capacity and storing data protection allow leading content creators to handle high-resolution contents faster and more securely on the go.

Lightning Speed
Samsung Portable SSD X5 leverages technological synergies between NVMe™ and Thunderbolt™ 3 technologies, offering a remarkably fast interface of up to 40Gbps bandwidth. The X5 delivers read/write speeds of up to 2,800/2,300 MB/s* respectively, which is more than five times faster than current USB 3.1 Portable SSD (SATA-based) and more than twenty-five times faster than an external HDD.

Revolutionary Design
Inspired by a supercar, the X5’s dynamic design is optimized for performance and reliability. Using a durable yet light magnesium full metal body and internal structure, the X5 withstands drops of up to two meters (6.6 feet).

Well-Engineered Reliability
The X5 integrates the advanced thermal management technologies. The Dynamic Thermal Guard technology safeguards against overheating by automatically maintaining optimal operating temperatures, while a heat sink - a mechanical internal solution – further lowers the overall SSD temperature as a way to minimize thermal influence while maximizing performance. With Dynamic Thermal Guard and the mechanical solution technology, the surface temperature of the X5 is kept below 45°C.

• Magnesium metal body design.
• Non-slip due to matte bottom.
• Shock resistance from up to 2m.
• Surface temperature below 45°C.

Strong Data Protection
