ADATA USB4 External SSD: Speeds of up to 3,800 MB/s

ADATA has unveiled the ADATA SE920, a compact and high-speed external solid-state drive (SSD) that claims to be the first to support 40 Gbps USB4 connections. The SE920 offers read/write speeds of up to 3,800MB/s and 3,700MB/s respectively. However, due to its high speeds, the SSD generates more heat than most, necessitating active cooling. To address this, ADATA has incorporated a proprietary patented active dissipation design and a built-in micro fan. The SSD also features a telescoping case that expands when in use, allowing for better airflow circulation when the fan is active. By pressing down on the case, users can activate the fan, and retract it when not needed to save space.

Measuring 105 x 64.2 x 15.9mm when closed, or 122.56 x 64.2 x 15.9mm when extended, the portable SSD weighs 182 grams. The ADATA SE920 is backward-compatible with USB 3.2 and USB 2.0, although slower speeds should be expected when using these ports. ADATA will offer 1TB and 2TB versions of the SSD, and it is expected to be compatible with devices running Windows 10 or later, macOS 13 or later, Linux kernel 6 or later, or Android 13 or later. Pricing details have not been announced yet. See the press release for more information.
