Super Talent unveiled the new co-branded UltraDrive DX solid state disks, these disks are launched in cooperation with Toshiba and feature two levels of security to prevent unauthorized data theft or less.
As a first level of security the UltraDrive DX supports password protection with an encrypted password. This blocks malicious hackers from accessing the data stored on the SSD. As a second level of protection the DX incorporates new hardware data randomization technology. Data randomization happens automatically with every write to the drive to prevent unauthorized copying of blocks of data. Both encrypted password protection and data randomization are standard features that do not affect performance.
UltraDrive DX SSDs include sophisticated ECC and wear leveling algorithms for superior reliability and extended endurance. The DX has passed intensive testing with a gamut of hardware and software configurations to ensure unmatched reliability. While the DX was designed primarily for exceptional security and reliability, it is also surprisingly fast, and is specified to support sequential read speeds of up to 230 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 180 MB/sec.
The Super Talent UltraDrive DX is available in retail stores with 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB MLC NAND flash memory for $219, $439, $719, and $1,649, respectively.
