Samsung’s new T5 portable solid-state drive (PSSD) uses the latest 64-layer V-NAND technology, offers between 250GB and 2TB of storage capacity, has a lightweight and shock-resistant design that’s smaller than the average business card, and delivers industry-leading transfer speeds of up to 540 MB/s.

That’s all fine and very impressive, but the question that I want to ask is… how does it compare to the former model, the T3 PSSD? The infographic below puts the two devices side by side and highlights the improvements that Samsung made to its latest portable solid-state drive.
