ADATA Releases SE760 USB 3.2 Gen 2 External SSD: Up to 1000 MB/sby Anton Shilov on February 20, 2020 3:00 PM EST

High-performance external storage devices are gaining popularity these days as many mobile PCs come with a relatively low-capacity SSD that cannot be upgraded. To that end, ADATA this week announced its new lineup of high-end external SSDs that offer high performance with capacities of up to 1 TB.
The ADATA SE760 external SSDs come in a Black or Titan Gray metallic enclosure that measure 122.2×44×14 mm (4.8×1.73×0.55 inch), which is large enough to house an M.2-2280 SSD and a PCIe-to-USB 3.2 Gen 2 bridge inside. ADATA does not disclose which drives it uses, but we do know that they are rated for up to 1000 MB/s sequential read and write speeds, with capacities ranging from 256 GB to 1 TB.
ADATA’s SE760 external SSDs are bus powered and feature a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C interface, but to maintain compatibility with any PC, the manufacturer bundles the drives both with USB Type-C to Type-C as well as USB Type-C to USB Type-A cables.
When it comes to software compatibility, the ADATA SE760 drives can work with the usual suspects, including systems running Apple’s macOS, Google’s Android, Microsoft’s Windows, and Linux.
Unfortunately, while ADATA has announced the new SE760 drives, they are not disclosing pricing at this time. With 3D NAND prices remaining volatile, manufacturers are increasingly holding of on setting prices until the very last minute, so that they can best gauge the market.

austinsguitar - Thursday, February 20, 2020 - linkthats pretty neat
PeachNCream - Thursday, February 20, 2020 - linkWill have to keep an eye out for these to see where prices land. As-is it is interesting, but the cost for the capacity will obviously speak pretty loudly.
Thud2 - Thursday, February 20, 2020 - linkI must be wrong but I thought the Transfer rate for USB 3.0 was aroung 650 MB/s?
Thud2 - Thursday, February 20, 2020 - linkSorry, just saw it's 3.2 I'm out of the loop.
fazalmajid - Thursday, February 20, 2020 - linkI have a Plugable USB-C to NVMe USB 3.1gen2 enclosure similar to this one, with an Intel 660p inside, and I found the speed of USB-C ports varies dramatically, at least on Apple devices, so caveat emptor, your computer might not be up to the task, depending on how well the system I/O was designed or not.
Jesus_Meza - Thursday, February 20, 2020 - linkThat's just the 660p being a QLC drive. Once the SLC cache fills up, it slows down pretty hard.
Calabros - Friday, February 21, 2020 - linkI badly need my camera to support this as external storage. Japan, are you listening?

I knew it, these manufacturers are always trying to gouge us for everything we got.
FastCarsLike - Sunday, April 26, 2020 - linkPretty much. Spot on.
