Samsung has announced its first NVMe-based external solid state drive (SSD), the Portable SSD X5. The new SSD comes in 1TB, 2TB and 500GB variants and is aimed at users like video editors and content creators who need to move large files at faster speeds. Samsung claims that it can deliver read speeds of up to 2,800MB/s and write speeds of 2,300MB/s. On the 500GB model, the write speed drops slightly down to 2,100 MB/s but owing to the Thunderbolt 3’s 40Gbps bandwidth, the X5 is said to enabling transferring a 20GB sized 4K UHD video in around 12 seconds. The device comes with a three-year limited warranty.
