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 …

Seagate Launches the 5th Generation FireCuda SSHD

Seagate has expanded its lineup of hybrid drives with the 5th-generation FireCuda SSHD. The greenhorns are based on shingled magnetic recording technology (SMR), rather than perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR). The SMR enables the partial superposition of data tracks; it ensures the ultimate record density. The models are backed by a 5-year’s limited warranty.

Seagate FireCuda series is introduced by 5 models, developed in 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch formats. Their capacity varies from 500 GB to 2 TB. The drives employ MLC flash memory (8 GB) as well as SATA 6 Gb/sec external interface. The spindle rotates at 5400 RPM.

The average data read speed makes up 140 MB/sec with 2.5-inch models & 156 MB/sec with 3.5-inch items. The latter offer also up to 190 MB/sec of the average read speed from flash memory; besides, it takes only 8.5-9.5 ms for the chips to search for the needed data on Read/Write operations. To add, the new FireCuda is thought to consume between 1.7-6.7 W power.
