ADATA releases the Premier SP550 SSD

The famous memory and SSD maker ADATA has launched the new Premier SP550 solid state drive, which comes with tons of new features. Most importantly the new SSD uses triple-level cell (TLC) architecture, which allows high performance for an affordable price.

The new Premier SP550 SSD offers much more than this, though. The new SSD is based on the Silicon Motion SMI2256 memory controller, which uses uses NANDXtend technology to help ADATA implement SSD technologies such as data shaping, LDPC ECC, and a RAID engine for enhanced data protection, stability, and reliability. SLC caching technology has been implemented to boost performance.

“The launch of ADATA’s Premier SP550 SSD with our SM2256 client controller represents a milestone in SSD adoption,” said Nelson Duann, Silicon Motion’s Vice President of Product Marketing. “TLC-based SSDs significantly improve the affordability of high performance, low power SSDs.”

“Our Premier SP550 SSD integrates superior TLC NAND carefully selected and refined with ADATA quality assurance to deliver leading performance, data reliability, and endurance. It provides customers a clear choice for the best storage experience,” said Kevin Chen, Vice President of ADATA.

The drive comes with a capacity of 960 GB and there’s excellent durability too, which is indicated by higher total bytes written (TBW) ratings, which mean the number of times a drive can write a specified capacity in one lifespan. In addition it supports SATA DevSlp (device sleep) low power mode that reduces the power used and lowers the energy bill, while providing a longer battery life and comes with Acronis True Image HD and ADATA Toolbox software for easy data migration to new systems and better SSD management.

There’s no information on the price of the Premier SP550 SSD.
