The ultra-compact PCIe Flash Drive with Thunderbolt 2 interface is a portable bus-powered drive requiring no external power source, and is introduced with 256GB storage capacity, with 512GB and 1.02TB models being added in the future. The new SSD drive is the ideal high performance alternative to USB thumb drives, portable SATA based hard disk drives and current SSD storage products in the market. It easily connects to a compatible Mac® or Windows computer with a Thunderbolt port, or at the end of a Thunderbolt device daisy chain, via its attached Thunderbolt cable.

The LTNG-XTD SSD Flash Drive leverages the latest generation M.2 PCIe SSD technology, coupling a 20Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 interface that provides real world sustained read and write file transfer speeds of between 1,200 to 1,400 MB/s. The unit incorporates a PCIe Generation 3 flash controller, enabling it to easily outperform 6Gb/s SATA SSDs and 5Gb/s USB 3.0 flash drives. The flash drive is compatible and certified for use with OS X (including Yosemite) and Windows® 7+ OS.

To keep the size ultra-compact, the new LTNG-XTD SSD Flash Drive has an integrated anodized aluminum finned heat sink covering its entire surface area which allows sustained, silent operation 24/7 while significantly extending its life span.

Intel is pleased to work with JMR to bring to market one of the industry’s first bus-powered Thunderbolt 2 PCIe SSD storage devices,” said Jason Ziller, Director of Thunderbolt Marketing, Intel Corporation. “Thunderbolt PCIe SSD Flash Drives such as JMR’s newly released LTNG-XTD portable SSD demonstrate what is possible with Thunderbolt technology, setting new milestones for performance, portability and affordability for the industry.”

“We are delighted to be working with Intel to be among the first to bring to market our Thunderbolt 2 equipped SSD Flash Drive,” added Josef Rabinovitz, president and CEO of JMR Electronics. “The LTNG-XTD is the ideal, portable and ultra light-weight storage complement for creative and business professionals needing a high performance shuttle drive for in-house and offsite workflows — from viewing and editing digital dailies, to being used as a scratch disk, ruggedized transport medium or back-up tool.”

The new LTNG-XTD portable Thunderbolt SSD is part of the new Lightning family of Thunderbolt certified storage products from JMR Electronics.
