Transcend launches its new SSD220S

Transcend has announced the availability of its high-performance solid state drive for system builders looking to speed up their system boot up times and application startup.

The Transcend SSD220S is rated for 550MB/s transfer speed. It also features a DDR3 DRAM cache which provides incredible 4K random read and write performance up to 330MBps. Peak speeds of 550MBps read and 450MBps write are achieved via advanced firmware algorithms, high quality flash chips and SLC caching technology.

It guarantees long operating life and ability to optimize itself for long-term usage via built-in technologies to improve the drive as wear sets in. It sports a RAID engine and low-density parity check coding to keep data secure.

Also, the Transcend SSD220S features multiple built-in technologies for maximum reliability including Error Correction Code (ECC) to help detect and correct potential transfer errors, Device Sleep (DevSleep) mode to reduce power consumption and shorten the response time upon wake-up from Sleep or Hibernate, and the S.M.A.R.T. function to efficiently monitor SSD health conditions.

At only 6.8mm and weighing at 58g, it fits most modern notebook and replaces the heavier traditional hard drive providing faster application loading times and start-up speeds as well as dropping power consumption to help improve battery life.
