Two New SSDs Launched
SanDisk today announced two new SSD products – the
SanDisk Ultra® Plus SSD for the retail channel and the
SanDisk X110 SSD for OEM customers.
The SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD is ideal for consumers who want to boost their notebook or desktop computer’s boot, shutdown, data-transfer and application launch times. The low latency of the SATA 3.0 drive allows it to respond quickly, even with a heavy workload, and its consistently high read speed is ideal for read-intensive applications such as multimedia consumption.
The drive delivers up to 530MB/sec sequential read and up to 445MB/sec sequential write speeds
, offering a fast, responsive computing experience. In addition, with no moving parts, the SSD is more durable than traditional hard disk drives and it consumes less power to help maximize battery life. The drive is available now at
in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB
capacities carrying suggested retail prices of $74.99, $109.99 and $219.99, respectively. In addition, the Ultra Plus is available at
in 128GB and 256GB capacities.
The SanDisk X110 SSD enables notebook and tablet OEM manufacturers to design fast, responsive systems with the sleek, thin form factors consumers’ desire. The X110, successor to SanDisk’s popular X100 SSD, delivers fast sequential and random read/write speeds and employs a low power architecture that significantly reduces the power consumed by the device in low power modes. The drive is available now in a 2.5” SATA form factor for easy integration into systems sold by OEMs.
