SanDisk delivered two new solid state disks at Storage Visions 2013.
First up is the UltraPlus SSD, a 2.5" model with a thickness of 7mm. Available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities, this disk uses 19nm MLC flash memory chips and a Marvell 88SS9175 controller. The 128GB and 256GB models are rated at 530MB/s read, 445MB/s write, 82,000 random 4k read IOPS and 39,000 random 4k write IOPS. A listing on Amazon reveals a $250 price for the 256GB model.
SanDisk also teased the X110, an upgraded version of the X100. It's a mSATA SSD with 19nm NAND and maximum read speeds of up to 505MB/s and max write speeds of 445MB/s. No details about capacities or pricing, but the X110 will not be sold directly to consumers.
