Designed for content creators, the compact Samsung 4TB T9 Portable SSD now delivers a sequential read speed of up to 2,000 MB/s, which is nearly double its predecessor, the T7. The sequential write speed is up to 2000 MB/s, while photographers will be happy to know that the sustained write speed is up to 1000 MB/s (after Turbowrite). The T9 now features a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2x2 port, delivering up to 20 Gb/s of max throughput. When it comes to the design, the T9 has curved diagonal lines and reverse carbon patterns, which gives its rubber surface a more fabric-like feel and a soft touch. Add low idle power consumption and reliable durability, and the T9 is ready to join in the field.

Note: To achieve maximum advertised speeds, please make sure your computer or host device is certified to support the 20 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 connection. Apple devices, including those with Thunderbolt/USB4, do not support 20 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 and will be limited to 10 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2.

Performance
In addition to the T9's impressive transfer speed of up to 2,000 MB/s, T9's Turbowrite buffer size was increased to suit the usability of content creators. For sustained performance, the T9 has a write speed up to 1,000 MB/s (after Turbowrite) without any sudden performance drops, which is essential for high-end camera users.
Wide Compatibility, Including Galaxy and iPhone
The T9 is compatible with the Apple iPhone 15/Pro/Pro Max, with support for ProRes 1080p/30 fps, 4K/30 fps, and 4K/60 fps. The T9 is also compatible with Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
Thermals
The T9 does not have any performance drops due to thermal throttling.
Power
The T9 has five times lower power consumption in its idle state compared to competitors. Idle power consumption is important, since PSSD completes host commands quickly and drops back to idle status for the remaining time.
Durability and Reliability
Samsung verifies and guarantees durability through various evaluations that simulate behavioral patterns using PSSD in real life, such as the tumbler test, drop test, and load test.
Design
The T9 features curved diagonal lines and reverse carbon patterns on the surface, giving the rubber a fabric-like feel and a soft touch.
