ASUS to exhibit HyperExpress SSD
The world of solid-state drives will be soon enriched by a new model that will be known as HyperExpress SSD. The product is a creation of the Taiwanese company ASUS and promises to bring some new functionality to the table.
The HyperExpress SSD is designed for use in high performance computing systems and will arrive in the common 2.5-inch form factor in a chassis that is 9.5 mm thick. The HyperExpress SSD is expected to provide excellent performance due to the fact that the device is based on two mSATA modules that make use of flash memory and run in RAID 0 mode. Thus the HyperExpress SSD will bring data transfer rates that range between 8 Gbit/sec and 16 Gbit/sec. The SSD also makes use of the latest SATA 3.2 standard. Thus on specially equipped ASUS motherboards the new ASUS SSD will be able to transfer data with the impressive speed of 778 MB/sec.
The price of the HyperExpress SSD has not been announced just yet.
