Strontium Technology launches Hawk SSDs
Strontium Technology has added a new SSD family to its SSD product list – this time coming under the name Hawk. The new SSDs are made by Hynix – a company well-known for its memory products, which is a promise of high quality.
Currently there are only two Hawk models with both of them based on the famous SandForce SF-2281 controller offering capacities of 120 GB and 240 GB. The two drives reach read/write speeds of 510 MB/sec and 470 MB/sec respectively. The Hawk series does not do that well in IOPS tests though – the models offer 50 000 and 38 000 IOPS when reading/writing.
Additionally the drives are based on Hynix MLC NAND flash memory and come with 3 years of warranty. Pricing is unknown, though.
