Ahead of this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Samsung has announced its latest external solid state drive (SSD), the SSD T3. An evolution of the SSD T1, the Portable SSD T3 is Samsung’s first SSD to include a USB 3.1 Type-C port instead of a standard USB port.

Devices that use USB Type-C are proving popular at this year’s CES, with multiple companies introducing new USB-C docks, connectors, and more. All of these products, including Samsung’s SSD, are compatible with the 12-inch Retina MacBook, Apple’s first computer to take advantage of USB-Type C.

The SSD T3 offers sequential read and write speeds of up to 450MB/s, and it’s also lighter and more durable than most standard hard drives on the market. According to Samsung, it’s smaller than an average business card. It can survive up to 1500G of force and will remain functional even after a drop of up to two meters.
