Western Digital Corporation has just introduced its fastest portable drive, the SSD My Passport, designed to be small and manage massive files anywhere.
It achieves up to 515 MB / s, making it the fastest My Passport drive offered by the WD brand. It is designed for the latest generation of Type-C USB-based computers, although it is also compatible with USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gb / s) using a USB Type-C built into a Type-C cable and an adapter for use with The most traditional USB type ports, found on many computers.
It includes 256-bit AES hardware encryption and password protection, and is quite resilient, having passed the 2-meter drop test.
It is offered with 1TB, 512GB and 256GB capacity, and includes WD Backup software to make it easy to back up quickly. At the moment it is only available in the United States through BestBuy.com, but we will see it worldwide this quarter with recommended prices of $ 400, for 1 Tera, $ 200 for 512 gigabytes and $ 100 for The one of 256 gigas.
The world of SSD is growing unstoppably, and all of us who have changed a traditional hard drive for an SSD understand the reason: SSD drives mark a before and after in the world of computers.
