Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, unveiled the T5 EVO, a lightweight portable Solid-State Drive (SSD) that boasts a staggering 8 terabytes (TB) of capacity, the largest capacity commercially available portable SSDs on the market.

The T5 EVO delivers ultra-fast speeds in a compact, durable design, making it a cutting-edge, versatile SSD solution ideal for professionals, content creators, and everyday users alike.

Exceptional Performance and Capacity

Powered by USB 3.2 Gen 1 technology, the T5 EVO offers blazing-fast transfer speeds up to 3.8 times faster than external hard disk drives (HDDs).

With sequential read and write speeds reaching up to 460 megabytes per second (MB/s), transferring large files or editing high-resolution videos is a breeze. The T5 EVO's compact and lightweight design makes it the perfect portable storage companion.

Measuring a mere 95mm x 40mm x 17mm and weighing just 102 grams, it fits comfortably in the palm of your hand or slips easily into a pocket or bag. Despite its diminutive size, the T5 EVO is remarkably durable, with a rugged metal body and rubberized surface that can withstand drops from up to two meters.

With up to 8TB of storage, the T5 EVO can accommodate massive amounts of data, making it ideal for storing and carrying large files, high-resolution videos, photo libraries, and game collections. An 8TB T5 EVO can hold over 2 million 3.5-megabyte (MB) photos, 1.8 million 4MB music files, or 3,500 2-gigabyte (GB) videos.

The T5 EVO prioritizes data security with advanced protection features. Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology prevents overheating and maintains optimal operating temperatures, while 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) hardware data encryption safeguards your sensitive information.

Wide Compatibility and Comprehensive Software

The T5 EVO is compatible with a wide range of operating systems, including macOS®, Windows®, smartphones/tablets, and game consoles. It also comes with Samsung Magician software, providing a suite of drive management tools, such as real-time drive health monitoring, performance optimization, and firmware updates.

The T5 EVO is available in three capacities: 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB. It comes with a USB Type-C to Type-C cable and a three-year limited warranty. The T5 EVO is available worldwide from today. For more information, visit the Samsung website at
