RunCore, the leading manufacturer of high-performance and rugged solid state drives (SSDs), today introduced its latest Enterprise-Grade SSD, the RunCore Kylin III PCIe SSD. With an application that includes databases, web servers, analytical engines, high performance computing servers and other similar applications, requiring ultra low latency and high bandwidth are some of the features supported by Kylin III PCIe. It significantly increases performance density while attaining a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) which was never attained before.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced its new lineup of high-performance SSDs designed for use in personal computers. The new series supporting SATA 6.0 gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) interface comes in two tracks; one for general computing purposes and another, an advanced lineup dubbed ‘PRO’ for serious users.
Samsung’s tiered offering for professional and general user environments provides consumers a broader choice of SSDs to best suit their personal requirements.
MyDigitalSSD has teamed up with SuperSSpeeds to offer the fastest and top performing solid state drives on the market today. Utilizing the SandForce SF-2281 controller and SLC NAND flash, the SuperSSpeed boasts incredible speed for advanced gaming, multitasking, and multimedia computing power. Rated at 550MB/s Read and 520MB/s Write, the SuperSSpeed is proof that in this day and age, you get what you pay for, being arguably 20 times better than its nearest MLC rival at only twice the expense including accessories!
SP/Silicon Power, the world’s leading provider of memory storage solutions today launches the new Slim series 7mm 2.5” SSD for the new generation of ultra slim notebook. Built in a slim and stylish enclosure, the new SSD unleashes the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA III interface to further expand computing experiences and mobility.
Yesterday at the Intel Developer Forum 2012 OCZ was quietly giving a sneek peek at their new Vector solid state drive. The Vector drive is built on Indilinx’s latest Barefoot 3 controller. This controller is completely built from the ground up by Indilinx (the Barefoot 2 used Marvell technology). Maybe this new controller will fix the single thread issue we saw with drives based on the Barefoot 2 controller. The Vector drive also sports 2x nm MLC NAND, and a SATA 6.0 Gbps interface.
Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, today introduced the OWC Mercury Accelsior M, a Mac and PC-bootable, fully supported PCIe controller card that accepts any standard 50mm mSATA Solid State Drive. By utilizing the fastest data interface available in a Mac Pro or PC-the PCIe slot-the Mercury AccelsiorM can offer data transfer speeds that exceed 3Gb/s SSDs….up to 380MB/s.
Back in July we took a look at the Vertex 4 solid state drive from OCZ. This was the first consumer solid state drive from OCZ to use the Indilinx Everest 2 controller. Today we are looking at OCZ’s second solid state drive to use that controller, the Agility 4. The Agility 4 features read and write speeds of 420MB/s read and 410MB/s write respectively. Since OCZ has been making solid state drives they have always had the Vertex line and Agility line. The Vertex line was always the high-end enthusiast product, while the Agility was aimed for the mainstream. It is no different here, unlike the Vertex 4 that uses synchronous NAND the Agility 4 uses asynchronous NAND and is much less expensive. As of this review the Agility 4 is $189.99 for the $256GB version. Read on as we check the Agility 4 out!
Mini-SATA or mSATA as most people call it was announced towards the end of 2009. It has primarily been used in laptops and netbooks where a very small solid state drive has been needed. Recently with Intel Z77 chipset we have seen many mSATA ports show up on motherboards. Today we get our first look at an mSATA solid state drive, and man is it small! The drive in question today is the Crucial M4 mSATA 256GB drive. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
Not that long ago we took a look at the Vertex 4 from OCZ. It was the first consumer solid state drive to use the Indilinx Everest 2 controller. It is the high-end enthusiast solid state drive, but what about the mainstream and value segment? Well OCZ has you covered there as well. Introducing the Agility 4, which features the Indilinx Everest 2 controller and read and write speeds of 420MB/s and 410MB/s respectively. Read to check out our unboxing and overview video and maybe you will see us void the warranty when we open the drive up!
PCI-Express solid state drives are fairly new and there are only a handful of these drives available. These devices break the speed barrier on SATA 6GB/s drives by using the PCI-E interface. The most prevalent PCI-E solid state drives our OCZ’s RevoDrive series, but OCZ better watch out because the drive we are taking a look at today has a few features that the RevoDrive’s do not. The OWC Mercury Accelsior PCI-E Solid State Drive comes in capacities from 120GB to 960GB, is upgradable, and is both PC and Mac “plug and play” compatible. Want to learn more?
