LiteOn is back with own solid-state drive line

Back in the day of CD-RW and DVD-RW drives the brand name LiteOn was a popular one as the company behind it manufactured numerous models as well as other hardware components. We haven’t heard anything from LiteOn lately mainly because the hardware branch of the company manufactures OEM drives for other companies such as Plextor but LiteOn is now back with a new solid-state drive line called ZETA.

The LiteOn Zeta line offers everything you would expect from a SSD. The new LiteOn SSDs are 7 mm thick, come in the popular 2.5-inch form factor, support the latest SATA 3.0 interface and are based on the Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller which drives 16 nm MLC NAND flash made by SK Hynix. There are three models in the line – a 128 GB model (LCH-128V2S), a 256 GB one (LCH-256V2S) and a 512 GB version (LCH-512V2S) – all of them come with a LPDDR3 cache of 128 MB, 256 MB and 512 MB, respectively.

All three models achieve sequential read speeds of up to 520 MB/sec but the sequential write speeds are different. The 128 GB model offers up to 150 MB/sec of write speed, the 256 GB model reaches up to 260 MB/sec and the 512 GB model is as fast as 430 MB/sec. The 4K random access read speeds are up to 67,500, up to 82,500 and up to 83,500 IOPS, accordingly. The random access write speeds are up to 37,500 IOPS, up to 72,500 IOPS, and up to 80,000 IOPS, respectively. Just like most other SSD models the ZETA drives support TRIM, NCQ and 256-bit AES encryption.

No word on pricing as of now. The drives will first debut in China and then will reach the rest of the world.
