Western Digital has created three external SSDs for video creators that handle large files. Most of these are video storage units for companies, given the high prices and the amount of storage. The three new units support high transfer speeds and have large amounts of storage (up to 16 TB). The units are designed to give video producers higher upload speeds of up to 2800MB / s so they can better handle large 4K and 8K RAW files, which take up a lot of space and take a long time to load.
The first, G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD, allows you to edit 8K videos at high frame rates and in full resolution. Western Digital says that with G-Drive, it can "transfer as much as a terabyte of media in seven minutes or less." It is also designed to travel and is designed to prevent overheating. The G-Drive Mobile Pro has a Thunderbolt 3 port that allows you to edit video while you are out and can store up to one terabyte of data. The SSD will be available this summer and costs $ 659.95 for 500 GB of storage or $ 1,049.95 for 1TB of storage.
Then there is the G-Drive Pro SSD, which is similar to the Mobile SSD but designed to be used in the workplace. The transfer speed and full resolution of the video you can handle are the same, but it comes with two Thunderbolt 3 ports instead of one and the ports can be daisy-chained to up to five additional devices. The storage options are 960GB for $ 1,399.95, 1.92TB ($ 2,099.95), 3.84TB ($ 4,099.95) and the massive 7.68TB ($ 7,599.95). The SSD Pro comes in May.
Finally, for those who handle gigantic files that exceed 7TB in total, there is the G-Speed Shuttle SSD that supports HD, 8K, VR and VFX editing. It has eight removable SSDs and is available this month. The 8TB option costs $ 5,099.95, and the 16TB option costs $ 7,599.95.
