WD launches rugged SanDisk Pro G-40 SSD with Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 2

The SanDisk Pro G40 has arrived, bringing new dual-mode compatibility with Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 interfaces, paving the way for easy and efficient transfers across devices. 

Today, WD announced the latest addition to its SanDisk Professional line-up, the Pro-G40 SSD. This is the company's most rugged drive to date, with a high-level IP68 rating and strong durable casing to keep your data protected no matter where your work takes you. Beyond that, you'll also have access to blazing-fast speeds, making this perfect for moving large files.

Geared towards business and creative professionals, the Pro-G40 SSD offers super-fast speeds of up to 2700MB/s read and 1900MB/s write through Thunderbolt 3. At these speeds, it should only take 30 seconds to move a 50GB file, making it ideal for working with large files, such as 4K or 8K video, AR/VR rendering or transferring other data quickly.

The casing is aluminium, providing passive cooling for the SSD to help maintain fast speeds for longer periods of time. With its design and IP68 rating, the SSD is also dust and water-resistant and can withstand up to 3-meter drops.

Picking one of these up will cost you £414.99 for the 1TB version, or £654.99 for the 2TB version, both available directly from the Western Digital Store.
