Transcend adds 1 TB SSD to MTS800 line
The Taiwanese memory maker Transcend has announced that its MTS800 SSD line now offers a 1 TB model. As all other MTS800 models the new one is also done in the popular M.2 form factor and is best used in ultrabooks, tablets and other thin devices.
The new 1 TB model offers the latest SATA 3.0 standard and reaches sequential read and write speeds of up to 560 MB/sec and 460 MB/sec, respectively. The SSD comes with several technologies that guarantee a long working life with no problems – there’s wear-leveling that guarantees that all SSD memory cells will be equally used, ECC for dealing with data errors and Intel Smart Response, which allows users to use the SSD as a hard drive cache in case of need.
There’s no information on the price and the actual availability date of the new SSD model but given that the 512 GB version costs around USD 200, then the new 1 TB model should sell for around USD 400.
