Silicon Power debuts SandForce-based V20 SSD

Posted on Tuesday, February 15 2011 @ 17:23:55 CET by

Silicon Power announced the V20, a new solid state disk series with the latest SandForce controller. The V20 series is available in 40GB, 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities and promises read speeds of up to 285MB/s and write speeds of up to 275MB/s. The disk is bundled with a 3.5" adapter and is backed by a three-year warranty.
World leading flash memory manufacturer Silicon Power today announces the new 2.5" SATA Velox V20 series Solid State Drive (SSD). Instantly boosting PC performances, it uses the latest SandForce controller, featuring a maximum read-speed of 285MB/s and write-speed of 275MB/s so enthusiasts can sit back and enjoy the speedy transfer rates!

Tremendous Write-Speed Improvement
Silicon Power’s V20 SSD uses the latest SandForce controller, it boasts a continuous read / write speed up to 285MB/ 275MB per second, respectively. An actual test using a 40GB V20 required only 13 seconds to boot into Windows and open up a program. It is the perfect enterprise office PC storage solution or the ideal boot-up disk in any PC! In addition, V20 SSD also supports TRIM Command and Garbage Collection technology to counter performance drop issues due to long period of use and continuous write actions.

Significantly Extending Lifespan
Using SandForce controller’s patented DuraClass technology, it can extend the SSD lifespan up to 5 years! The DuraWrite technology optimizesthe to-be written data to a reserved 7% flash memory storage block that acts as an intermediate station before data are written with an amplification less than 1 to their final storage blocks. This vastly reduces the occurrences of bad sectors and thus extending the lifespan.

Silicon Power’s V20 SSD comes with a 3-year warranty and a 2.5inch to 3.5inch adapter bracket for you to install into a desktop PC to boost performances!
