G-Technology is rolling out a new line of Thunderbolt 3-based SSD drives to cater to those struggling with mammoth 4K and 8K video files.

The new G-DRIVE mobile Pro SSD lineup is capable of transfer speeds up to 2800MB/s–fast enough to edit multi-stream 8K footage or transfer 1TB of footage in seven minutes, G-Tech says. The drives will be sold in capacities of up to 1TB. The SSD is housed in a rugged, shock-resistant design with one Thunderbolt 3 port.

The G-DRIVE mobile Pro SSD will ship this summer in 500GB ($660) and 1TB ($1,050) capacities.

The G-DRIVE Pro SSD will be sold in up to 7.6TB worth of capacity. It features a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports for daisy-chaining up to five additional Thunderbolt peripherals. The enterprise-class SSDs are housed in a stackable, rugged aluminum enclosure. Look for them in May in capacities of 960GB ($1,400), 1.92TB ($2,100), 3.84TB ($4,100) and 7.68TB ($7,600).

Finally, the G-SPEED Shuttle SSD will deliver up to 16TB of storage capacity. It offers several hardware RAID settings, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and 50. It ships with eight removable SSD drives pre-configured in RAID 5. The Shuttle ships this month in 8TB ($5,099.95) and 16TB ($7,599.95) capacities.
