ADATA releases the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 SSD line

ADATA has announced a new solid-state drive line that is called Premier SP550 M.2 2280 and as its name suggests it comes in the popular M.2 form factor. This makes the SSDs in this line especially suitable for notebooks and small-form factor PCs.

The new ADATA line includes models with capacities of up to 480 GB but despite the difference in the capacities all models measure 22 x 80 x 3.5 mm. The drives reach up to 560 MB/sec of sequential read speed and up to 510 MB/sec of sequential write speed with 4K random read levels of up to 75K IOPS. The Premier SP550 M.2 2280 also employs a high quality SMI memory controller and SLC caching technology, which allows the drives in this line to operate in a simulated SLC (single-level cell) mode for a performance boost. DRAM cache buffer functionality (where the SSD uses system RAM as a temporary, ultra-fast cache) also enhances read/write performance by as much as double that of solid state drives that lack a DRAM cache.

To further enhance the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 ADATA has equipped the SSDs with RAID engine and data shaping technologies that provide an enhanced lifespan and longer-lasting stability. The drives also support LDPC (low density parity check) error correction technology to reduce data errors, increase data integrity, and improve transfer quality. Furthermore, DEVSLP (device sleep) mode reduces power consumption and prolongs battery lifespan, an excellent feature for laptop users that want extended usability and portability. In addition to all this users of ADATA Premier SP550 M.2 2280 SSDs qualify for free downloads of the ADATA SSD Toolbox software suite as well as data and operating system migration utilities.

Unfortunately it is unclear how much the new ADATA SSDs cost.
