LiteOn releases the M.2 Zeta SSD line

LiteOn releases the M.2 Zeta SSD line

Back in December 2014 LiteOn announced its new M.2 Zeta SSD line, which was the first SSD line created by the company. The line included three models with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB and promised to reach up to 520 MB/sec of read speed. Today LiteOn has officially released the new drives to market.

There are no changes to the M.2 Zeta SSD line – you still get the same three models with the same three capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB. The drives support the M.2 form factor and offer SATA 3.0 speeds that theoretically reach 6 Gbit/sec. The SSDs are based on the Silicon Motion SM2246EN memory controller and include 16 nm MLC NAND flash memory made by Toshiba as well as 256 MB of DDR3 memory as cache, courtesy of the Taiwanese memory maker Hynix.

When it comes to performance the drives reach up to 550 MB/sec of read speed and up to 270 MB/sec of write speed (results for the 256 GB SSD drive only). In addition expect to get up to 31 000 IOPS while randomly reading 4K blocks and up to 120 000 IOPS when writing 4K blocks. As you can see the new SSDs are not the fastest but they will do. Finally the M.2 Zeta SSD line offers support for 256-bit AES encryption, NCQ and TRIM.

No word on pricing but given the performance levels the new M.2 Zeta SSD line should not be too expensive.
