NEW: Fusion(TM) Thunderbolt(TM) 3 PCIe(R) Flash Drive
This rugged, pocket-sized solid-state drive (SSD) storage device is capable of transferring data at speeds of over 2,100 MB/s, and is equipped with 512GB of flash storage. The Fusion(TM) flash drive is an ultra-fast alternative to portable SATA-based hard disk drives, SSD storage devices, and USB thumb drives. The new Fusion flash drive connects to any Windows(R) computer with a Thunderbolt(TM) 3 port via a user-replaceable captive 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable. Measuring a compact 2.8 inches wide by 4.1 inches deep by 1.25 inches tall, the Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe(R) Flash Drive features a fanless aluminum enclosure that enables silent operation. The device is bus-powered and so requires no power adapter.
