Western Digital/SanDisk&s new compact mobile Extreme Pro Portable SSD connects via USB and achieves USB 3.1 Gen 2 and NVMe SSD read rates of up to 1,000 MB/s using an NVMe SSD. The 112 × 58 × 11.5 mm SSD is housed in an aluminum enclosure and supports the IP55 standard
It will be available in capacities of 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB with a warranty of three years to be sold. Its high speed allows, for example, the editing of video in real time directly on the external disk. The price and market launch have not yet been announced, and the Extreme Pro Portable SSD is likely to be released in the spring.

However, the otherwise considerable transfer speed of 1,000 MB/s is put into perspective by the OWC ThunderBlade V4 SSD, which achieves read speeds of up to 2,800 MB/s per Thunderbolt 3 (two units, even 3,800 MB/s per SoftRAID) and write speeds of up to 2,450 MB/s per Thunderbolt 3.
Another new product presented by Western Digital at CES 2019 is the prototype of the world&s largest USB stick with a capacity of 4 TB. It is connected via USB-C.
