Meet New Transcend HSD740 SSDs for Universal Usage

Transcend has pushed along its new solid-state drive of half-slim form-factor — HSD740. The drive is based on a high-quality NAND flash-memory with MLC architecture and is intended at the employment in a wide spectrum of platforms: small-sized portative devices, laptops, enterprise PCs, as well as in gaming consoles. This model features only 54x39x4 mm dimensions and will come in two capacity variations (32 GB and 64 GB).

Transcend HSD740 employs an up-dated SATA 6 Gb/sec interface to provide for the utmost data transfer speeds. The maximal speed index on sequential Read operations equals to 510 Mb/sec, while on sequential Write operations this index does not trespass 185 Mb/sec.

Support of SATA Device Sleep (further on DevSleep) mode deserves special praise. This mode ensures that this solid-state drive consumed minimum power on diverse operational conditions. On its activation, SATA interface gets totally disabled on stand-by time; at the same time, it is able to …

Plextor Prepares the Release of M5P SSD

Plextor is currently preparing a new SSD series, codenamed M5P. According to the forecasts, this series will be differentiated by high-performance characteristics and Serial ATA 3.0 interface. M5P will be represented by three models of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB volume capacities. All the model lines are developed with the utilization of 19 nm technological process. In addition, all SSDs will be equipped with NAND flash-memory (MLC Toshiba) and Marvell 88SS9187 controllers.

Three models differ from one another by the flash-memory volume. Thereby, 128 GB models accommodates 256 MB of DDR3 cache-memory, 256 GB model – 512 MB, and the last one, 512 GB model – 768 MB. Those SSDs support SATA 6 Gb/sec.
