adata_xpg_sx900_ssd.pngADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash storage application products, announces the availability of the XPG SX900 Solid State Drive for the USA & Canada. With up to 512GB of storage potential, the biggest model of this SSD line has a 7% capacity increase over common SSDs in the market that use a SandForce controller.

The XPG (Xtreme Performance Gear) family of products has been expanded to include solid state drives, and the SX900 is a perfect match for the performance requirements of this elite group. Built for enthusiasts, the SX900 utilizes a SATA III 6Gbps connection and SandForce 2281 controller. Its maximum sequential read and write speeds are 550/530 MB per second, with maximum random 4k write speeds as high as 85,000 IOPS.

The XPG SX900 SSD adopts specially selected flash chips and supports the Windows TRIM command for efficient allocation of unused space. This results in more accelerated transfer and write performance for the XPG SX900, and is also effective in slowing down efficiency decline and depletion chances, maintaining effective operation and extending the life of the disk.

Micron Technology, Inc., one of the world's leading providers of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced a new solid-state drive (SSD) that broadens Micron's client product portfolio to serve the rapidly emerging Ultrabook category. The newly announced drive is based on the proven architecture of Micron's popular RealSSD C400 drives, providing the same high performance and reliability.

micron_c400_msata_ssd.png

The C400 mSATA drive is designed to work in ultrathin, high-performance SSD-based systems and can also act as a cache drive in dual-drive systems. SSD-caching systems have both a hard-disk drive and a low-capacity SSD. These systems use software to automatically identify the most frequently used files and programs and then access those files from the SSD, providing greater performance than a hard-disk drive, but at a lower price point than a stand-alone SSD.
