Longsys releases PCIe SSDs with SATA SSD prices
China is one of the largest manufacturers of all kinds of goods in the world so it is not surprising that this Asian country also has solid-state drive manufacturers such as Shenzhen Longsys Electronics (Longsys). This company has just released a new solid-state drive line called P800 that comes with a PCIe interface. Despite this, Longsys says the new P800 line will come with low prices that are suitable for ordinary SATA solid state drives, which will make the P800 representatives a really good deal.
The P800 line is based on 15 nm TLC NAND flash memory and includes Marvell memory controllers. According to Longsys, the P800 drives reach 700 MB/sec of read speed and 300 MB/sec of write speed. The SSDs will be available in the M.2 form factor too. As of now there are two models in the line only – with capacities of 120 GB and 240 GB.
The new SSDs will be in stores in May of this year. No word on pricing as of now.
