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.
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.
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).
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.
