Western Digital has doubled the storage capacity of portable solid state drives

Western Digital doubled the maximum storage size for many portable SSDs to 4 TB, while the Western Digital SSD range previously reached 2 TB.

The new portable SSD is designed to meet today's demand for high-quality content and give consumers and professionals more room for creativity

These four drives provide gamers, content producers, and creators with the performance, durability, and maximum capacity they need to store and transfer files.

The 4TB storage configuration can use the My Passport brands, WD_Black by Western Digital, and the SanDisk Extreme Sub-series.

All products are also guaranteed for five years.

Western Digital's My Passport SSD was updated last August with a read speed of 1050MB per second and a write speed of 1000MB per second from $ 680.

My Passport SSD is shock and shock resistant, can drop up to 1.98 meters, and comes in a variety of colors including gray, blue, red, gold, and silver.

WD_BLACK P50 Game Drive SSD is $ 750 at Western Digital. The speed of reading and writing can be up to 2000MB per second.

WD_BLACK P50 Game Drive SSD is compatible with PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Xbox.

If you want to purchase this product as an external SSD to extend storage via PS5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, there are some limitations.

This drive can be connected to PS5, but you can only store PS4 games. Although it can be used on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, the game disc is not compatible with the expansion version of the SSD for these platforms and cannot take full advantage of the next generation hardware. .

Currently, the Seagate expansion card, with a capacity of only 1 TB, is the only SSD that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S can fully utilize.

The SanDisk Extreme 4TB hard drive costs $ 700 and promises read speeds of up to 1050MB / s and write speeds of up to 1000MB / s.

The drive has drop protection up to 2 meters and waterproof protection class IP55.

The fastest option is the SanDisk Extreme Pro 4 TB, which costs $ 750 and has a read and write speed of 2000MB per second.

The aluminum frame acts as a coolant and ensures a higher steady speed.

Western Digital plans to have all of these products available on its website later this quarter.
