ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today launched the Ultimate SU700 2.5” SATA 6Gb/s SSD, which signals further expansion in 3D NAND Flash storage. The SU700 delivers high-grade 3D NAND and uses an all-new Maxiotek controller. Performance goes up to 560MB/s read and 520MB/s write, with up to 960GB capacity. Agile error correction, WriteBoost SLC caching, and virtual parity recovery are supported to bolster data integrity and sustained performance.
More 3D NAND options
ADATA continues to move exclusively to stacked, 3D NAND. The SU700 employs 3D NAND Flash that is more reliable, efficient, and generally faster than the previous 2D NAND. The SU700 provides superb value considering the many features it supports, driven by a new Maxiotek controller plus ADATA-designed circuitry and firmware.
Speedy performance maintained
The SU700 reaches 560MB/s read and 520MB/s write, once more showing that 3D NAND is at least 10% faster than 2D NAND. It also offers up to 80K IOPS (input/output operations per second), with performance metrics remaining stable even in the face of heavy data loads thanks to the controller and firmware supporting WriteBooster mode. This is an SLC caching (pSLC) state that allows the SU700 to maintain maximum data rates. Frequency control technology keeps an eye on SSD workloads to provide a balance of performance, power efficiency, and wear prevention.
Reliable, secure, durable, and long lasting storage
ADATA design and testing also ensure the seamless integration of 256-bit AES encryption and Agile error correction. Virtual parity recovery is also supported, providing additional layers of protection against data loss. ADATA offers the SU700 in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB versions, with all offering an MTBF (mean time between failures) of 2 million hours. The 960GB version has a TBW (terabytes written) rating of 560TB, indicating a long SSD lifespan. SU700 SSDs arrive backed by a 3-year warranty.
