NVMe! Not USB!
G-Technology may not be a household name but if you need some of the the fastest external storage going, the G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD 500GB is something to consider. The internals are familiar, when KitGuru ran CrystalDiskMark it decided the Thunderbolt drive was a 500GB SanDisk Extreme Pro, which houses a Western Digital Black NVMe drive.
While 4k performance wasn’t great, larger reads hit 2,811MB/s and writes 2,337MB/s, or to put it another way a 16GB folder of raw 4K video scenes took just 9.1 seconds to transfer from this drive to an internal NVMe SSD, If you deal with large files while you are on the go, check out this fast and rugged external drive.
G-Technology’s G-Drive mobile Pro SSD external drive is aimed at professional users, offering super-fast transfer rates for jobs such as editing very high definition video editing in real time or VR rendering on the move using a combination of an NVMe SSD and Thunderbolt 3 interface.
