Sonnet’s 1TB Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive Delivers High Speeds

Sonnet Technologies has announced the new 1TB version of its Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive.

Sonnet said the rugged, pocket-size solid-state drive (SSD) storage device is compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 interface. The Mac- and Windows-compatible drive is equipped with 1TB of NVMe flash storage and leverages the 40Gbps bandwidth of Thunderbolt 3 to deliver data transfer speeds up to 2600 MB/s.

The Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive was designed for pro users requiring high performance in a portable storage device, unencumbered by the need for an AC power adapter. The storage device connects at the end of a Thunderbolt 3 device daisy chain, with its 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable.

Based on the latest PCIe Gen 3 flash memory technology, the Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive is more than five times faster than 6Gbps SATA SSDs and USB 3 SSD drives.

Measuring a compact 2.8 inches wide by 4.1 inches deep by 1.25 inches tall, the Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive features a rugged enclosure crafted out of aluminum, which effectively cools the SSD and eliminates the need for a fan, enabling silent operation.

The Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive with 1TB capacity is now available at $999.
