Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the launch of its new next generation SSD720 SATA III 6Gb/s solid state drive (SSD) that delivers significantly improved computer performance over standard rotating hard drives. Designed with multitasking power users in mind, the productivity-enhancing SSD720 is the ideal solution for demanding system applications, such as specialized multimedia computing and advanced gaming.
Combining the latest SATA III 6Gb/s specification with a powerful SandForce-Driven controller, the SSD720 is able to offer incredible transfer speeds of up to 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write, taking a mere 15 seconds to transfer a 5GB DVD. This ultra-fast speed translates into significantly faster system boot up, application launch speed, data transfers, and overall system responsiveness. Moreover, support for Native Command Queuing (NCQ), increases the performance and efficiency of the SSD720 by optimizing the order in which received read and write commands are executed.
