If you have a USB-C port on your computer, this could be awesome.
OWC on Tuesday unveiled its Envoy Pro Ex with USB-C support. The company claims 980MBps of sustained throughput with the device, the drive being Mac and PC-compatible and available unpopulated for $95.
It also arrives with an NVMe SSD pre-installed: 250GB for $130, 500GB for $180, 1TB for $250, or 2TB for $430. The drives will be warrantied for three years, and may be purchased at the company’s web site.
OWC has yet to specify the transfer protocol it will use, as USB-C is a connector, not a transfer technology in and of itself. A USB 3.1 Gen 1 would boast speeds of 5Gbps, while USB 3.1 Gen 2 would boast speeds of 10 Gbps.
OWC has also claimed that the case is relatively waterproof, and can survive for 30 minutes under one meter of water.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
