SanDisk has announced their new Pro-G40 SSD. It’s a super fast and super rugged SSD that offers both USB 3.2 Gen 2 and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity through its single Type-C USB port. SanDisk, a Western Digital company (because apparently people still don’t know Western Digital acquired SanDisk a few years ago) says that the new SSDs are their most rugged portable SSDs to date.
As well as their high speed, the new Pro-G40 SSDs, available in 1TB and 2TB capacities, feature a durable build quality with an enclosure that’s raged for up to 4,000 pounds crush resistance and up to 3 metres drop resistance. An aluminium core that pulls heat away from the drive to help maintain speeds and prevent thermal throttling and it’s IP68 dust and water resistance rated, so it can handle harsh environments.
