Bullet SSD is presented as a portable external solid state drive capable of storing up to 2TB of data, boasting 500MB/s read and write speeds.
Its size is surprising, as it can be carried like a keychain, in your pocket, which helps to have access to all our information at any time.
These types of units are generally too big to carry or too small to have enough data storage and transfer speed. Their presentation in Kickstarter has been a success, they have multiplied by seven what they originally asked and there are still 56 days left of campaign.
Weighing only 18 grams, it measures 51 mm x 16 mm x 8 mm, making it the world’s smallest high-speed SSD.
The SSD Bullet is a complete solid state drive that works with NAND TLC and achieves transfer speeds that allow all creative files to be edited directly from it.
It is made of a single piece of aerospace aluminum, which increases its durability. It’s also IP67 certified, so we don’t have to worry about water buildup. The idea is to be able to use it on desktops, laptops, cameras, smartphones, tablets and even game consoles.
The idea of the SSD Bullet was almost discarded due to overheating problems. The problem with such a small external SSD is that it was too powerful for its size. The heat that was generated could not be dispersed quickly enough and reduced performance. To solve this problem, they upgraded the system to use a low heat generation and energy efficient model. They also employed passive graphene cooling technology by developing their own graphite heat shield, which helps conduct thermal energy quickly and uniformly away from hot spots to maintain a low operating temperature for optimum performance.
They have the 1TB unit available for only $99, but will begin shipping the first units in March of next year, so it will be necessary to wait a few months.
