AData presents a new SSD SandForce under reference to the usable capacity of 7%.
In late February, LSI-SandForce announced the availability of a new firmware for his star on the market for SSD, SF-2281 controller. An important update because it allows manufacturers to flash drives, if they wish, with the over-provisioning and thus offer 7% of additional storage on their models. AData has decided to take advantage of this opportunity with its new SSD in the XPG, launched under SX910 reference range.
A DSS that therefore in shops in capacities of 128, 256 and 512 GB (instead of the usual 120, 240 and 480 GB). AData is of course reassuring, explaining that the lack of over-provisioning is affected in no performance of its disks, or longevity. Faithful to the message passed by LSI-SandForce upon the release of its new firmware. Moreover, since it is better to prevent healing, Adata guarantees the XPG SX910 for 5 years, without however communicate on the number of cycles that the selected cells may cash.
Interfaced in SATA III 6 Gbps and the 2.5-inch format, these SSD Adata promise to reach top-flight performance but nonetheless classic controller SF-2281, namely up to 550 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write sequential (on compressible data), and 85,000 in random IOPS. It now expected of these DSS rates.
