The Plugable TBT3-NVME1TB 1TB external NVMe SSD drive hits performance levels not possible before Thunderbolt™ 3. Connect the drive to a Thunderbolt 3 port to gain 1TB of extra storage with amazing speeds of up to 2400+ MB/sec read and 1800+ MB/sec write, all without the need for an external power connection. Great for content creators requiring blazing fast external storage, no-compromise gamers who want the fastest possible portable Steam library, or as a secondary/portable OS boot drive on supported host systems.

Intel Thunderbolt™ 3 technology offers blistering transfer speeds up to 40Gbps and is the perfect connection to take advantage of new storage technologies. Unlike traditional external storage solutions that are limited by the SATA III interface, NVMe technology allows solid state media to interface directly with your CPU via PCI Express, allowing vastly improved performance as well as lower latency and reduced CPU usage. With the TBT3-NVME1TB external solid state drive, you can experience performance like never before, often as fast (or faster!) than your computer’s built-in storage, and roughly 5x faster than traditional SATA III solid state drives connected with USB 3.1 Gen 2.
