SanDisk may have just designed a photographers dream storage device. At this years CES, the brand announced a new portable solid-state drive with a whopping 8 terabytes of capacity. The 8TB SSD is small enough to fit into your pocket, yet can hold a substantial amount of data. Although, the SSD is only a prototype and SanDisk hasn’t revealed any further information regarding when it will be available to buy.
The prototype follows the SuperSpeed USB interface whilst promising transfer speeds of up to 20Gbps, meaning it is also significantly faster than other portable SSD’s.
Whether you are interested in carrying around that amount of storage or not, it is still impressive to see such a small device filled with so much storage. According to SanDisk, it is the world’s ‘highest capacity, pocket-sized portable SSD’.
Packing huge amounts of storage into a tiny device is one of the brands strong points. Just take a look at the SanDisk 2TB Extreme Pro Portable SSD Drive. The SanDisk Extreme Pro offers blazing-fast performance for professional-grade videos and photos, whilst it’s small and light form factor allows you to take it with you wherever you are.
As the 8TB SSD is only a concept, for the time being, it’s unsurprising that there haven’t been any clues on how much this storage device will set you back, but we can imagine it will cost quite a bit. We will be sure to keep you posted on any further developments.
