Samsung Announces T9 Portable SSD
First Samsung Portable SSD featuring a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface delivers increased productivity with speeds up to 2,000 MB/s
Two times faster than previous models, users can transfer a 4GB video in two seconds
Samsung Electronics America today announced the release of its newest addition to the T-series, the T9 Portable Solid State Drive (SSD). With its stylish and portable design, the T9 is built to keep data safe while on-the-go, empowering users with fast transfer speeds and ample storage.
“Content creators need a storage solution that can quickly and reliably store their creations and save them time – especially while on-the-go,” said Jose Hernandez, Senior Director of Memory Product Marketing at Samsung. “The T9 offers the perfect option, helping the hundreds of millions of creators worldwide do everything from capture high-res photos, shoot and edit 4K videos, transfer files, and seamlessly back them all up, within seconds.”
Superior Performance and Massive Storage Capacity
The T9 offers up to 2,000 megabytes-per-second (MB/s) sequential read and write speeds on the USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface. The USB interface enables two lanes of 10 Gbps operation to provide 20 Gbps data transfer rates which delivers faster speeds when transferring high-resolution videos or large files, effectively saving creators’ time during heavy workloads like video editing. Approximately two times faster than the previous model, the T7, the speed of the T9 allows users to transfer a 4-gigabyte (GB) Full HD video in nearly two seconds or an hour and half-long 4K video (21GB) within 12 seconds.
The T9 comes in three different capacity options to fit the needs of every creator. With 1-terabyte (TB), 2TB and 4TB varieties, the T9 makes it possible to complete quick and frequent transfers while providing ample storage for large volumes of data. Its compact size, similar to that of a credit card, allows users to carry their creations wherever they go.
Luxury Added to Ruggedness
The T9 delivers the functional advantages and unique design benefits of ‘luxury added to ruggedness,’ like the durable design of the T7 Shield. The curved diagonal lines and reverse carbon patterns on the surface of T9 give the device a fabric-like feel like a luxurious wallet. The design of the T9 leverages rubber material for significant performance advantages and temperature control, while also giving users a comfortable grip on the device.
Unmatched Reliability and Thermal Control
Professional creators push the boundaries of what’s possible, and their data is invaluable. The T9 is designed with a strong aluminum body and is covered with rubber allowing it to withstand drops up to nine feet to keep data safe. Plus, with a five-year limited warranty, the T9 portable SSD gives reliability that users need to empower them to pursue their most ambitious projects.
For creators who require fast and efficient large file transfers without slowdowns, the drive is built with silicon and aluminum to dissipate heat, ensuring the drive will run throughout intense work sessions. With the Samsung Dynamic Thermal Guard, it efficiently minimizes the performance drops that can be caused by overheating, ensuring consistent and fast transfer speeds. Its superior heat control enables professionals to transfer hours of 8K video or thousands of high-resolution images, without worrying about data loss.
