Plugable has released a 512GB model of the Plugable Thunderbolt 3 NVMe External SSD, a solid state drive designed to reduce bottlenecks and improve performance with rapid speeds of up to 2400 MB/sec read and 1800 MB/sec write, all without the need for an external power connection.
The 512GB model is available globally for $199 in addition to the previously announced 1TB model ($299) and 2TB model ($499). It’s capable of storing 85 minutes of ProRes 422 HQ 4K video or 75 minutes of DnXHR HQ 4K video.
The plug-and-play SSD is compatible and interchangeable with any Thunderbolt 3-enabled Mac or Windows system. The Plugable SSD, made of anodized aluminum, weighs 6.1 ounces with a surface area just slightly larger than a smartphone. A velvet carrying case provides an extra layer of protection.
