Hardware Description

The increasing demand for high-performance system storage device is easily met by the Premier Pro SX300 mSATA 6GB/sec solid state drive. With a SandForce controller and 25nm (MLC) NAND Flash chips, the SX300 reaches random read and write speeds of up to 25,000/85,000 IOPS. When combined with the Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge platforms, the SX300 can achieve amazing performance on both desktop and notebook systems. The implementation of optimized firmware in the SX300 results in full utilization of the NAND Flash components, which translates to maximized storage capacity: a 7% increase over other solid state drives that use a SandForce controller. This zero percent over-provisioning is implemented with no loss to performance or supported features, and can be realized only by 100% screening and sorting of the NAND Flash.
