GOODRAM debuts C Series SSDs

The SSD market and buyers have enjoyed the appearance of yet another SSD family by the not so popular company GOODRAM. Hailing from Poland this company has introduced its C Series SSDs that promise high performance at a lower price.

The GOODRAM C Series consists of three models with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB. All of them sport the usual 2.5-inch form factor, are 7 mm thick and are based on 19 nm MLC NAND flash memory. As expected the drives support SATA 3 from the very beginning but they also have another peculiarity – the 120 GB model has 256 MB of DDR3 memory serving as cache, while the 240 GB and 480 GB models enjoy 512 MB of DDR3 memory as cache.

The C-Series reaches 500-520 MB/sec of top read speed while the fastest write speed achieved reaches 360-470 MB/sec. Random read IOPS also reach 53 000 while random write reaches 70 000. In addition the drives support TRIM and SMART technologies as well as Garbage Collection and 1 million hours of MTBF. Power consumption is also extremely low – the drives need 0.105W of power on average.

Pricing is unknown but to somewhat remedy this situation GOODRAM says the C-Series drives come with a 3-year warranty.
