what the transfer speed of the included USB 3.1 USB-C to C cable ( not the device itself which is 540 MB/s), is it 5Gb/s,10Gb/s or less ?
Asked by: adelqafar
I'm very sorry but Samsung does not specify the gen of the cable included with the T5. At the very least it would be 5Gbps which would still support the full speeds the drive is rated for (540MB/s).
