Plextor M9Pe 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe Solid State Drive

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 11:15:00 -0600

(image) CDRLabs has taken an in depth look Plextor's latest PCIe SSD, the M9Pe. Optimized for high-level PC gaming, this M.2 form factor drive is powered by Marvell's 88SS1093 "Eldora" controller and is available with up to 1TB of Toshiba's 64-layer BiCS3 3D TLC NAND flash. To compensate for the slow write speeds typically associated with TLC NAND, the M9Pe uses Plextor's exclusive PlexNitro cache acceleration technology to optimize performance without taking up any space on the drive. The M9P is also equipped with a PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe 1.2 interface to provide higher bandwidth and lower latency than SATA SSDs.




Sonnet Ships 1TB Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 10:29:17 -0600

Sonnet Technologies today announced that the new 1TB version of its popular Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive is now shipping. A rugged, pocket-size solid-state drive (SSD) storage device with a Thunderbolt 3 interface, the Mac- and Windows-compatible drive is equipped with 1TB of NVMe flash storage and leverages the 40Gb/s bandwidth of Thunderbolt 3 to deliver data transfer speeds up to 2600 MB/s.

The Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive was designed for pro users requiring ultimate performance in a truly portable storage device, unencumbered by the need for an AC power adapter. The storage device connects to any compatible Mac or Windows computer, or at the end of a Thunderbolt 3 device daisy chain, with its 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable. Based on the latest PCIe Gen 3 flash memory technology, the Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive is more than five times faster than 6Gb/s SATA SSDs and USB 3 SSD drives.




Samsung Begins Mass Production Of 30.72TB PM1643 12Gb/s SAS SSD

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 12:36:10 -0600

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s largest capacity Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) solid state drive (SSD) – the PM1643 – for use in next-generation enterprise storage systems. Leveraging Samsung's latest V-NAND technology with 64-layer, 3-bit 512-gigabit (Gb) chips, the 30.72 terabyte (TB) drive delivers twice the capacity and performance of the previous 15.36TB high-capacity lineup introduced in March 2016.

ADATA Presents HD710M Pro And HD710A Pro High-Performance External Hard Drives

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 15:35:15 -0600

(image) ADATA Technology Co., Ltd., a global leader in memory products, is proud to present the HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro, two new entries in the Durable line of external hard drives. The HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro are based on the toughest designs, but with better specifications than ever, offering protection against dust and moisture that exceeds IP68 standards, as well as military-grade shock-proofing. This means that users can bring their hard drive anywhere without having to worry about losing data.

Triple-Layered Construction in a Stylish Package
The military-grade storage solutions in ADATA’s Durable series are the perfect combination of reliability and creative flair, which has led to multiple awards from organizations such as iF and the Red Dot Award. The HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro represent an evolution of these principles; the HD710M Pro applies the same military camouflage theme as the HD710M, giving off an air of rugged martial prowess, while the HD710A Pro extends the elegant minimalistic themes exemplified by brands such as Apple, with its understated gray and white casing. The HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro both have strong protections against water and dust, which exceed IP68 standards, meaning that they are insusceptible to foreign particles and moisture. They can even survive submerged for 60 minutes in 2m of water, unscathed. The triple-layered construction gives the hard drives exemplary protection against shocks and collisions, having passed drop tests on 26 separate points of impact. They can even survive falls of up to 1.5m.
