Samsung Portable SSD T7 Shield

Today Samsung announced the T7 Shield Portable SSD, its most durable SSD to date. The T7 Shield is shock-resistant from drops of up to three meters and it is also IP65-certified as dustproof and water resistant. Despite its rugged build quality, the T7 Shield weighs a mere 98 grams.

The T7 Shield can deliver up to a read speed of 1,050 MB/s and a write speed of 1,000 MB/s.

Samsung has changed the surface material and improved the software in the T7 Shield, to solve the performance degradation and overheating that occur during large file transfers.

It is possible to transmit data stably without performance drop, even when performing data-heavy, continuous tasks such as high-quality video recording, editing, encoding and rendering.
