Silicon Power presents Slim S60 and Slim S70 solid-state drives

Silicon Power, a renowned Taiwanese maker of memory products and solid-state drives, has presented its new Slim S60 and Slim S70 lines of SSDs. The new drives are designed for use in ultrabooks and thin notebooks and measure 100 x 69.85 x 7 mm (weight – 63 grams).

The new lines share some of the specs – they are all based on SandForce SF-2281 controllers, have support for SATA 3.0 and arrive in capacities that range from 60 GB to 480 GB. This is where the differences come in, though – the Slim S60 line reaches 550 MB/sec of read speed and 500 MB/sec of write speed. The line supports TRIM, GC, NCQ, ECC and RAID and comes with DuraWrite technology for longer SSD life and SMART for self-monitoring.

The Slim 70 is a bit faster at 557 MB/sec of write speed and 507 MB/sec of write speed. The drives make use of Toggle NAND flash memory and reach 86 000 IOPS.

All Slim S60 and S70 drives come with a 3-year warranty. The pricing of the drives is not clear at the moment.
