ADATA adopts three-dimensional chips Intel-Micro in favor of its own 2.5-inch drive
The Ultimate SU800 drives do not give official details about the manufacturer from which the 3-D flash chips come from (in the TLC configuration), but using the term 'floating gate' leaves little room to doubt that IMFT's works - (After Micron 's MX300 itself) and the third drive in general (if included with Intel' s 600P) that is used and intended for the home market.
The ADATA drives are based on the Silicon Motion SM2258 controller and will be available in standard volumes between 128GB and 1TB, with memory Unsupported DRAM cache, support for Pseudo-SLC technology to improve performance potential, support for DevSLP technology for minimal power consumption at rest, support for LDPP as a three-year official error correction and warranty with 2's announced MTBF.
In terms of Performence, ADATA reports maximum continuous transfer speeds of up to 560 megabytes per second in reading and up to 520 megabytes per second in writing, alongside Performence Up to 90,000IOPS in reading and 80,000IOPS in writing - which are probably reserved for the model with the maximum volume, while smaller and cheaper models will be characterized by potential Performence More humble than ever.
The Ultimate SU800 models are expected to reach the various stores in the coming month, with recommended price tags of 60 for the 128 GB, 80 for the 256 GB, 140 for the 512 model Gigabyte and 270 for the upper terabyte model.
These are not the cheapest prices we have come across, but they seem to be a good starting point for market prices that will be a few tens of percent lower in practice and bring us closer to the lower and most profitable end of the market. Even if it does not happen immediately - the very fact that we have a slight increase in market competition is encouraging and is a positive development.
