SanDisk Unveils the New Pro-G40 SSD

Western Digital has unveiled the SanDisk Professional Pro-G40 SSD, its latest ruggedized solid-state drive with a dual-mode USB-C port that supports both Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 interfaces.

“The nature of my work is unpredictable and as a result I must be incredibly flexible and versatile. I share the same expectations for every piece of equipment that I use from capture to archive, which is why the SanDisk Professional PRO-G40 drive will immediately be a crucial part of my workflow,” said Andy Handcock, action, portrait, and reportage photographer, and PRO-TEAM ambassador. “I need storage solutions that are lightweight, compact, rugged, and insanely fast. This checks all the boxes for me. The PRO-G40 SSD can easily withstand the rigors of travel and location work while doing so with a minimal footprint. Thanks to SanDisk Professional products like these, workflow is one less thing I need to stress about which frees me to focus more on the creative. That is paramount.”

Dual-mode compatibility with Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) and USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) hosts through a single port makes collaboration across devices easier for maximized efficiency. The new offering boasts super-fast speeds of up to 2700MB/s read, and 1900MB/s write with a Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) interface. Move 50GB in 30 seconds or less and power through even the most demanding workloads. The cool aluminum core pulls heat away from the internal drive to help maintain super-fast transfer speeds over time.

The PRO-G40 SSD has a pro-grade enclosure ready for any adventure and delivers premium strength. Its ultra-rugged design with IP68 dust/water resistance, up to 4000-pound crush resistance, and up to 3-meter drop resistance help withstand the elements in just about every location for ultra-durability.

“The new PRO-G40 SSD eliminates the problem we have all experienced before: grabbing the wrong USB-C cable or computer for our Thunderbolt 3 or USB devices,” said Hector Sandoval, vice president of product marketing, pricing, and programs at Western Digital. “By supporting both interfaces and including a cable that does as well, this drive enables creatives to efficiently collaborate across devices without having to worry about carrying the right gear nor diminishing sustained performance as they continue producing impactful content that powers our world.”

The Pro-G40 SSD is available starting today for $300 for 1TB and $450 for 2TB. It is supported by Western Digital’s five-year limited warranty.
