Western Digital introduces powerful 8TB desktop SSD


Western Digital Corp. (NASDAQ: WDC) expands the SanDisk portfolio with the 8TB SanDisk Desk Drive, the highest capacity external desktop solid state drive (SSD) yet.

  • Faster access to content, even for the heaviest files like 8K videos, with read speeds of up to 1000 MB/s – up to 4x faster than a desktop HDD.
  • Back up at SSD speeds using Apple Time Machine or automatically with the included downloadable Acronis True Image for Western Digital backup software.
  • The compact design was awarded a Red Dot Design Award 2024.
  • Works natively with Windows or macOS with exFAT formatting, using the included USB Type-C cable.

The 4TB SanDisk Desk Drive (target price $423.99) and 8TB SanDisk Desk Drive (target price $779.99) are available now from the Western Digital Store and from authorized SanDisk retailers, e-tailers and distributors.
