Avexir launches S100 SSDs

The Taiwanese memory and SSD maker Avexir has announced a new SSD family called S100. The new SSD line targets the mid-range market segment and offers some really interesting specs.

The new Avexir S100 line features the common 2.5-inch form factor and all the drives in the line are 7 mm thick. There are three models as of now with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB and all of them use NAND flash memory and JMicron memory controllers. As expected the S100 line fully supports SATA 3.0.

Performance-wise the new drives reach up to 540 MB/sec of read speed and up to 450 MB/sec of write speed as well as up to 80 000 IOPS in random 4K reading. An interesting fact is that the S100 drives have built-in LED lights. In addition each model comes with a special adapter that allows installation in regular 3.5-inch bays.

The Avexir S100 line comes with a warranty of three years. There’s no word on pricing.
