Fantom Drives Release G-Force 3.

1 SSD Suite for 4K Video Editing, Music, and


Large File Storage/Migration

Hardened SSD Models Test at a Transfer Rate Up to 560 MB/s for High Throughput Video,
Creative, and Large File Applications

Torrance, CA, August 07, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Fantom Drives, a consumer, prosumer and SMB data
storage innovator, today announced the company's new G-Force 3.1 high performance external SSD suite
for use with throughput intensive video and creative applications. The new drive models are available in
250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB SSD capacities and feature USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C connectivity. The
lightning fast data transfer rates support applications in photography, 4K video storage/editing, music and
large file storage/migration.

Fantom Drives G-Force 3.1 SSD drives are fully backward compatible with USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and USB
3.1 Gen 1 ports and ship with both Type A and Type C cables. The high-performance units take SSD
storage throughput to the next level, allowing the transfer of a 2-hour long high-definition (1080p) movie
(4.7GB) in approximately 10 seconds[1]. The drives are available with either a black or silver case forged
of solid brushed aluminum, durable enough for nearly any mobile operating environment. Finally,
desktop computer users seeking the advantages offered by the G-Force 3.1 have the option of upgrading
their systems with the company's new PCIe Host Card (Part Number: PCIEHA) which allows for
maximum utilization of the drive's high transfer speeds without having to upgrade the entire computer.

Features of the G-Force 3.1 Include:

- External low profile SSD drive designed for portability


- Choice of black or silver brushed aluminum exterior for durability. See video demonstration of the
drives durability at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMhzn2CZMAg&t=36s
- Available capacities: 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB
- Interface: USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C
- Transfer rate: Up to 560MB/s

“The global market for solid state drives (SSDs) was U.S. $22.80 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach
U.S. $100.44 billion by 2026 -- growing at a CAGR of 17.9% during the forecast period,”[2] said analysts
in a recent report by Stratistics Market Research. For consumers, prosumers and SMBs, the growing
volume of digital data, content generation and transfer requirements as well as the need for reliable and
fast data storage has elevated the demand for quality external SSDs like the Fantom Drives G-Force 3.1
series. Other drivers include resistance to physical shock, lower access times, silent operation, and lower
latency compared through electromechanical disks.

“The GForce 3.1 provides reliable, high-performance SSD storage to customers with features and
functionality unavailable from other manufacturer's in the same price range,” said Hamid Khorsandi,
CEO of Fantom Drives. “Whether using a Windows or Mac system, the plug-and-play drive connects

quickly and delivers the throughput to handle the most data intensive projects.”

To support desktop computing users lacking USB 3.1 connectivity, an optional PCIe X4 Host Adapter
(Type-C & Type-A) is available that provides two USB 3.1 downstream receptacle ports capable of
handling SuperSpeed+ throughput. The adapter also provides full backward compatibility with USB3.0,
USB2.0, and USB1.1 devices and only requires an empty PCIe 3.0 x4, x8, or x16 slot in the computer for
full USB3.1 performance.
