PATRIOT, a global leader in performance memory, SSDs, gaming peripherals, and flash storage solutions, is proud to announce the launch of their P200 series 2.5" internal SATA III 6Gbps solid state drive (SSD) today. The P200 series comes equipped with best-quality memory chips and components that have passed a strict quality control process. This process ensures that the P200 series provides the largest storage capacity, fastest read and write speeds and better reliability. P200 series is available in sizes ranging from 256GB and up to 2TB to meet current marking demands for diverse storage options and features the latest SMI 2258XT series controller to achieve the unparalleled transfer speeds of up to 530MB/s read, and 460MB/s write. This speed boost improves systems performance in many ways from response time under heavy loads to initial startup times and transfer speeds across a network.
P200 has trimmed its thickness down from 9mm to 7mm to ensure it will fit into any system while reserving extra space on the backside of motherboard trays in high-end gaming systems. The thickness between the side panel and the motherboard back tray can be quite small making the 7mm height of P200 ideal in these situations while also offering more space for better air circulation and cable management inside the case. The P200 series is a win-win solution for system builders when planning to build a mini PC or tower-style gaming system.Add a comment

Whether used as storage or a boot drive, it’s a great upgrade choice for users, especially those making a change from hard disk drives (HDD) to SDD. In addition, 3D NAND Flash consumes less power, up to 80% less than HDDs, which is ideal for users that often work on laptops for extended periods.
SK hynix Inc. announced today that it has developed and starts mass-producing the world’s first 128-Layer 1Tb (Terabit) TLC (Triple-Level Cell) 4D NAND Flash, only eight months after the Company announced the 96-Layer 4D NAND Flash last year.
The 128-Layer 1Tb NAND chip offers the industry's highest vertical stacking with more than 360 billion NAND cells, each of which stores 3 bits, per one chip. To achieve this, SK hynix applied innovative technologies, such as “ultra-homogeneous vertical etching technology,” “high-reliability multi-layer thin-film cell formation technology,” and ultra-fast low-power circuit design, to its own 4D NAND technology.Add a comment
Today Team Group launches two solid state drives with different features. The internal model, which under Team Group’s gaming brand T-FORCE, is CARDEA II M.2 solid state drive. This solid state drive emphasizes on features like PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and cooling module with patent gaming fin type design. The portable solid state drive PD400 uses the latest generation of high speed USB 3.1 Gen1 interface. It is lightweight, easy to carry and also has three major features: pressure resistant, shock proof, water proof. The two internal and external solid state drives offers solutions for the need of performance and appearance. Consumers not only can possess the latest visual design, but also enjoy the great advance in performance of storage devices.
T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA series release the CARDEA II solid state drive with improved performance. The gaming fin type cooling module has patented design (Taiwan Utility Model Patent No. M541645), and has passed rigorous tests and burn-in test. It can be cooled down about 10 degrees in a closed space, and 30 degrees in an open space. The radiating performance can be increased by 15% comparing with traditional cooling module. Module’s superconductivity – thermally conductive adhesive can effectively accelerate the heat transfer process, so the speed performance won’t be affected by high temperature anymore. CARDEA II uses PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and supports the latest NVMe 1.3 protocol. It has a truly outstanding sequential read/write speed of up to 3400/3000 MB/s, and random read/write speed of up to 180K/160K IOPS.Add a comment
