SEOUL, June 6 (Korea Bizwire) —SK hynix, a renowned semiconductor company, announced the recent release of Beetle X31 (X31), a portable solid-state drive (SSD) designed for general consumer use.
The X31 marks SK hynix’s entry into the external SSD market, boasting impressive sequential read speeds of up to 1,500MB/s and sequential write speeds of 1,000MB/s. This translates to moving a 1GB file in less than a second.
Notably, the X31 effectively manages heat generated by rapid data transfer, ensuring optimal storage speeds. SK hynix proudly states that it can transfer 500GB of data in under nine minutes, maintaining an average speed of over 900MB/s.
The X31′s sleek metallic aluminum casing not only provides durability but also aids in heat dissipation.
Rigorously tested for drops of up to 2 meters, it comes with a three-year warranty. Its ultra-lightweight (53g) and ultra-compact (74x46x14.8mm) design make it highly portable, while its beetle-like appearance adds an eye-catching touch.
The X31 is compatible with various devices, including IBM PCs, Macs, tablets, Android-based smartphones, and game consoles. It is available in two capacities: 512GB and 1TB.
Demand for the X31 has been exceptional, with the initial batch selling out within a day of its release in Korea through online retailer 11th Street. SK hynix plans to launch the product in the U.S., Europe, and Asia later this month.
