Kingston B02 Low Power 120GB SSD

This is the world's first look at the new LSI SandForce B02 stepping Flash Storage Processor. You can tell it's the B02 stepping by the 'VB2' in the string, SF-2281VB2-SPC. The throughput and IOPS performance is the same as VB1, but we suspect most VB2 controllers will run with new 20nm NAND from IMFT or new 19nm NAND from Toshiba.

Our early sample of B02 shipped with Toshiba 24nm NAND. We suspect the final retail units to reduce power even further from what we're showing today. The new Toshiba 19nm Toggle 2 NAND type B and type C are even faster than the 24nm on our drive today and because of that we're mainly focusing on the power tests.

Today we're not publishing traditional benchmark performance, but the reason has more to do with timing than anything else. Our B02 sample produces the same 500+ MB/s performance that we've come to expect from SF-2281 controllers.
