Active Media Predator V3 SSD offers 6Gbps Marvell controller

Posted on Monday, February 28 2011 @ 15:27:37 CET by

Active Media introduces the Predator V3, a new 2.5" SSD with the Marvell "Van Gogh" 88SS9174 SATA 6Gbps controller. The disk is available with 64GB and 128GB of MLC NAND flash memory for $199 and $339, respectively.

The 128GB model offers the best performance, it promises a read speed of 410MB/s, write speed as high as 200MB/s and up to 12,000 random 4k IOPS. The 64GB version on the other hand offers a 360MB/s read speed, 100MB/s write speed and 9,400 IOPS.
Active Media Products, a world leading manufacturer of DOMs and small form factor SSDs, today launched a server class 2.5" SATA-III SSD that delivers transfer speeds up to 410MB/sec. This SSD is fully downward compatible with SATA-II and SATA-I standards, and is a drop-in replacement for virtually any SATA HDD or SSD.

The Predator V3 is a SATA-III (SATA-3) SSD supporting the lightning fast new 6Gbps host interface. Based on the new Marvell "Van Gogh" 88SS9174 SATA-III controller, the Predator V3 also supports very impressive random read and write speeds, reaching up to 20,000 IOPS. This combination of both sequential and random read and write performance means that boot up, application load, database, video rendering, shutdown, and other disk intensive events will occur substantially faster than with a SATA-II drive.

The Predator V3 will deliver superb performance in a SATA-II port, but requires a SATA-III port to unleash it's maximum potential. For that reason, this SSD is primarily intended for high performance servers that support SATA-III. The Predator V3 is enclosed in a slim aluminum casing that follows industry standard 2.5-inch drive dimensions (100 x 70 x 9.5 mm). It is both mechanically and functionally downward compatible with SATA-II (3Gbps) and SATA-I (1.5Gbps) interfaces. The Predator V3 SSD also includes the latest advances in reliability including 48-bit per 2KB hardware ECC, bad block management and wear leveling technology. The Predator V3 is offered in 64GB and 128GB capacities.
