GOODRAM releases two new SSDs
The Polish hardware maker Wilk Elektronik, which owns the GOODRAM brand, has released two new solid-state drives, known as GOODRAM Iridium and GOODRAM Iridium Pro. The drives share most of the tech specs – they come in the popular 2.5-inch form factor, support the latest SATA 3.0 data transfer protocol, feature the powerful Phison S10 memory controller and offer MLC NAND flash memory as well as up to 1 GB of DDR3L memory as a cache for data.
The Iridium line offers 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB of capacity, while the Iridium Pro is more spacious at 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. The drives reach 560 MB/sec of read speed, up to 530 MB/sec of write speed and 86 000 IOPS of random read and 100 000 IOPS of random write for the GOODRAM Iridium drives and 91 000 IOPS and 90 000 IOPS, respectively, for the GOODRAM Iridium Pro line. The drives are also very reliable – they come with 2 million hours of mean time before failure and 1000 TB of TBW (total bytes written).
The Iridium SSDs sell for EUR 80 (120 GB), EUR 130 (240 GB) and EUR 250 (480 GB), while the Iridium Pro drives cost EUR 180 (240 GB), EUR 335 (480 GB) and EUR 685 (960 GB). The SSDs come with a 5-year warranty.
