ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 SATA 6Gb/s solid state drive. As the market presence of slim laptops and ultrabooks continues to grow, M.2 form factor SSDs are increasingly the preferred main storage choice due to limited internal chassis space. This applies to factory installs as well as user upgrades. Loaded with advanced features and technologies, the extremely light Premier SP550 M.2 2280 provides high speed performance alongside superior stability and efficiency to those delivered by mechanical 2.5” drives, resulting in a powerful yet affordable solution.
While the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 measures just 22x80x3.5mm, it is available in up to 480GB and upgrades slim laptops and ultrabooks without compromising performance. Its maximum read/write speeds are 560/510MB per second, with 4K random read at up to 75K IOPS thanks to a high quality SMI controller and SLC caching technology. The latter allows the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 to operate in simulated SLC (single-level cell) mode for a performance boost. DRAM cache buffer functionality (where the SSD uses system RAM as a temporary, ultra-fast cache) also enhances read/write performance by as much as double that of solid state drives that lack a DRAM cache.Add a comment
