SanDisk Drops USB-C Bombshell With Wicked Fast 1.92TB Extreme 900 SSD
SanDisk claims the Extreme 900 is the world's highest-performing, next-generation portable SSD. We prefer hard numbers to blanket claims, and on that front, SanDisk rates the Extreme 900 as being able to transfer data at up to 850MB/s. That kind of performance will come in handy when dealing with large files, such as those that accompany 4K video and high-resolution photography.
For lesser needs (and budgets), SanDisk also announced the Extreme 500 Portable SSD. It's less than half the size of a smartphone and delivers four times the speed of a portable hard drive, SanDisk says. That equates to transfer speeds of up to 415MB/s.
Both are compelling products for the 4K era, depending on your budget. The SanDisk Extreme 500 will be available in 120GB ($100), 240GB ($150), and 480GB ($240) capacities; the SanDisk Extreme 900 will be available in 480GB ($400), 960GB ($600), and 1.92TB ($1,000) capacities.
