Sonnet Technologies, Inc. introduced its Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe flash drive, a rugged, pocket-size SSD storage device with Thunderbolt 3 interface.

Equipped with 1TB of NVMe flash storage, this Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive is compatible with Mac and Windows computers, and leverages the 40Gb/s bandwidth of Thunderbolt 3 to deliver data transfer speeds up to 2,600MB/s.

"Our Fusion PCIe Flash Drive with Thunderbolt 3 is the world's fastest bus-powered device. It's capable of delivering the ultra-high file transfer speeds required for just about any 4K workflow - whether users need an ultra-fast shuttle drive or a take-anywhere scratch drive for editing high frame rate 4K video at offsite shoots," said Robert Farnsworth, CEO, Sonnet. "And now, with the increase in capacity to 1TB of NVMe storage plus macOS compatibility, the drive is even more versatile than ever."

The Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive was designed for pro users requiring performance in a portable storage device, unencumbered by the need for a power supply. The storage device connects to any compatible Mac or Windows computer, or at the end of a Thunderbolt 3 device daisy chain, with its 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gb/s) cable. Based on the latest PCIe Gen 3 flash memory technology, it is more than five times faster than 6Gb SATA SSDs and USB 3 SSD drives.

Measuring 2.8 inches wide by 4.1 inches deep by 1.25 inches tall, the Fusion PCIe flash drive features a rugged enclosure crafted out of aluminum, which cools the SSD and eliminates the need for a fan to enable silent operation. The power-efficient design is bus-powered and so requires no AC power adapter.

Designed and built by the company in California, the Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe flash drive is compatible with macOS 10.12.6+ and Windows 10.

With 1TB capacity (part number FUS-TB3-1TB), it will be available late September 2017 at an MSRP of $999.
