SanDisk unveils X400 SSDs

The US maker of memory products SanDisk has unveiled a new solid-state drive line called X400. The line comes in two form factors – 2.5-inch and M.2 2280 and sports four capacities – 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. Moreover, SanDisk says that the 1 TB M.2 model is the first such model on the market and as if this is not enough the device is just 1.5 mm thick.

“Consumers have spoken. They want to work faster, with fewer interruptions. Our ultra-slim 1TB M.2 X400 SSD enables our OEM customers to build completely new form factors with outstanding reliability and the near-instant boot-up and application loading that consumers expect,” said Tarun Loomba, Vice President and General Manager of Client Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “The X400 SSD is the flexible, highly reliable platform that our customers need to ensure an exceptional user experience for consumers.”

The new X400 line targets corporate consumers but hardware enthusiasts and even ordinary PC users should find the new drives in stores nearby with ease. For the 256 GB model SanDisk guarantees a working time period of five years given that users record 40 GB of data per day but this durability should be achieved by the other models as well. The average read speed is around 540 – 545 MB/sec, while the average write speed is between 340 MB/sec and 520 MB/sec, depending on the model. In addition the average number of input/output operations per second (IOPS) is 95 000. The new X400 solid-state drives support nCache 2.0 caching, 256-bit AES encryption and an advanced error-correction mechanism. Thanks to the high-capacity chips, which cover only one side of the SSD (in the case of the 1 TB X400 model), SanDisk has also achieved lower energy consumption.

The new X400 SSD line is now available in Europe where it starts at EUR 63.
