Hynix presents PC300 solid-state drives

Hynix has unveiled a new solid-state drive family known as PC300. The new SSDs are aimed at home users but unlike many other models they feature the M.2 2280 form factor, which makes them very, very fast.

The PC300 line includes four models with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. They, however, use memory controllers, memory chips and caches made by Hynix and there are no further details. Thanks to the M.2 interface the PC300 SSDs are very fast – all models reach up to 2200 MB/sec of sequential read speed, while the sequential write speed varies – the 128 GB model writes at up to 470 MB/sec, the 256 GB model writes at up to 900 MB/sec, while the 512 GB and 1 TB models write at 800 MB/sec and 1400 MB/sec, respectively. The 4K random read speed is 200 000 IOPS, while the 4K random write is 180 000 IOPS with the exception of the 128 GB model, which reaches 120 000 IOPS.

No word on pricing as of now.
