SanDisk presents the budget Z410 solid-state drives
The maker of various memory products SanDisk has announced a new line of budget-oriented solid-state drives. The new SSD family is known as Z410 and currently includes three members with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB.
The new drives do not shine with new or extraordinary features so they can be called just regular SSDs. The Z410 solid-state drives use the common 2.5-inch form factor, are 7 mm thick, which makes them suitable for notebooks and use 15 nm TLC NAND memory. The drives support SATA 3.0 and reach sequential read speeds of up to 535 MB/sec, sequential write speeds of up to 445 MB/sec as well as IOPS levels of 37K (while reading) and 68K (while writing). SanDisk also says the Z410 drives are extra reliable – the company claims they have a MTBF period of 1.75 million hours.
The new SanDisk Z410 SSDs are available now at various SanDisk retailers. The prices of the new SSDs are unknown, though.
