ADATA XPG SX300 and Premier Pro SP300 mSATA SSDs launched

Posted on Tuesday, June 19 2012 @ 14:06:39 CEST by


ADATA presents two new mSATA SSDs: the XPG SX300 and the Premier Pro SP300.
ADATA™ Technology today announces the launch of the XPG SX300 and Premier Pro SP300 mSATA solid state drives. Both products are geared towards consumers who wish to get the most out of recently released motherboards that have built-in mSATA sockets. By using an mSATA SSD as a cache drive instead of main storage, systems can reach speed boosts comparable to systems with SSDs as primary drive.

The XPG SX300 has a SATA 6Gbit/sec interface, and is targeted towards power users who demand the utmost in speed and capacity. Read and write speeds reach an impressive 550 and 505 MB/sec respectively, with maximum 4K random write of 85,000 IOPs. With capacities of 64, 128, and 256GB in such a small form factor, the SX300 brings the full power of solid state technology to the mSATA field.

The Premier Pro SP300 has a SATA 3 Gbit/sec interface, and is an economical upgrade option. Read and write speeds reach 280 and 260 MB/sec respectively, with maximum 4K random write of 46,000 IOPs. Capacities of 24, 32, and 64GB allow for use in conjunction with a larger but slower mechanical drive, making the SP300 an extremely cost-effective route for increasing system speed.

The implementation of optimized firmware in the SX300 and the SP300 results in full utilization of the NAND Flash components, which translates to maximized storage capacity: a 7% increase over other solid state drives that use a SandForce controller. This zero percent over-provisioning is implemented with no loss to performance or supported features, and can be realized only by 100% screening and sorting of the NAND Flash. Both the SX300 and the SP300 are applicable to Intel® Smart Response Technology, and comply with ATA/ATAP1-7 standard. Supported features include S.M.A.R.T and NCQ command sets, and TRIM command. A 3-year warranty and a MTBF (mean time between failures) of 1,200,000 hours ensure long term usage free of worries.

Availability
Both the SX300 and SP300 will be available through selected distributors and resellers in the USA and Canada.
