Transcend starts sales of SSD570 solid-state drives
Transcend, which we usually associate with SSDs, computer memory and various USB flash drives, has launched the new SSD570 line of solid-state drives.
Unfortunately for some of you the SSD570 line includes SSDs that are designed for industrial use only. This fact alone, however, makes the drives to be of high-quality since they will operate in conditions that are not the most favorable. The SSD570 series uses the popular 2.5-inch form factor and makes use of the top-quality SLC NAND flash memory. The drives provide the latest SATA 3.0 interface and are based on Transcend’s own TS6500 controller. The line includes two models as of now with capacities of 64 GB and 128 GB and thanks to the high-quality components used the drives reach read speeds of up to 510 MB/sec and write speeds of up to 450 MB/sec. In addition to all this the Transcend SSD570 line is equipped with various value-added technologies such as IPS function, Device Sleep mode and S.M.A.R.T. for lower power consumption and improved reliability.
