Transcend exhibits SSDs with PATA/IDE interface

The Serial ATA interface has almost completely conquered the digital world and this is why every new peripheral device that comes along our way features it. Owners of newer computers are surely delighted by this fact but what about older PCs that don’t have SATA ports or they simply are not enough?

Transcend has been thinking about older computers (which are many, many more than newer ones) and this is why the Taiwanese company has prepared a new SSD, named PSD320 that features the older but still widely found PATA/IDE interface. The new product will surely increase the performance of older computers while owners of such computers will finally have access to the promising SSD technology.

Transcend PATA SSD

The Transcend SSD PSD320 targets older 2.5-inch hard drives that feature 44 pins and comes in a light and sturdy chassis. Featuring 104 MB/sec read speed and 93 MB/sec write speed the PSD320 SSD fully supports the PATA interface and its UltraDMA 0-6, PIO Mode 0-4 and Multiword DMA 0-2 protocols. The new Transcend PSD320 solid-state drive can also be installed in any device that supports 2.5-inch hard drives, including factory machines, medical equipment and engineering solutions.

The novelty is based on MLC flash memory and will come in 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB capacities. It also supports the S.M.A.R.T., ECC, wear leveling and Advanced Power Shield technologies.

The Transcend PSD320 comes with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty but prices have not been revealed yet.
