The TUF Gaming AS1000 is a portable high-performance M.2 NVMe® SSD with innovative cooling features to ensure ultrafast data transfers. It uses a USB-C® 3.2 Gen 2×1 connection to ensure compatibility with PCs, laptops, and the latest gaming consoles. It’s been subjected to stringent tests to ensure your precious data is well-protected from everyday spills and knocks, and it comes bundled with NTI Backup Now EZ software for easy data backup and recovery.

Military-grade toughness
The TUF Gaming AS1000 is subjected to a rigorous battery of durability tests, including the U.S-military-grade MIL-STD-810H drop test* and IP68 water-and-dust-resistance**. Test devices are dropped from various heights, submerged in water, and exposed to dust and dirt to ensure toughness. Rest assured that the TUF Gaming AS1000 is more than capable of withstanding accidental bumps, knocks, spills, as well as dirt.

Ultrafast transfer speeds and ample storage

Blazing-fast SSD
Enjoy blazing-fast M.2 NVMe® PCIe® SSD sequential read/write speeds of up to 10 Gbps* — up to 10X faster than conventional external HDDs* — and up to 1 TB of storage. The TUF Gaming AS1000 portable SSD is perfect for those looking to expand their storage capacity, as well as those who want ultrafast data performance on the go for gaming, backing up large files, or creating 4K content.
*Results based on internal comparison tests against an ASUS FX external HDD 1 TB (EHD-A1T) for 100 GB file transfers.

Exceptional cooling
An aluminum-alloy chassis and internal thermal pad effectively dissipate heat to enable stable data transmission and prolong the lifespan of the SSD.
