Crucial has added two entirely new product lines to its range of portable SSDs. The newly-announced Crucial X10 Pro and X9 Pro will be competing squarely with the likes of the SanDisk Extreme Pro V2 portable SSD and Samsung Portable SSD T7 in the portable SSD market.

The new SSDs will be the flagship and high-end offerings in Crucial's portable SSD range, supplementing the existing budget-orientated X6 SSD, and what was until now the company's fastest portable offering, the X8 SSD, which will now be positioned as a more mid-range choice.
