Seagate's 2013 Consumer and Enterprise SSD Product Overview

Seagate finally gives in and prepares to enter the consumer SSD market. At the same time, the company is extending their enterprise portfolio in an effort to catch up to competitors. (NASDAQ:STX)

Seagate 600 SSD

Seagate's 600 SSD is a consumer SATA SSD that will face intense competition from a large number of existing SSD manufacturers. The 600 uses the same LAMD controller found in the Corsair Neutron and Neutron GTX and pairs the controller with Toshiba 19nm Toggle Mode flash, type C.

It's my opinion that Seagate was not ready for the types of questions that come with a serious SSD launch. With less than 48 hours to go before the veil lifts, the 600 SSD is the only product we have half the information we would normal have for a SSD.

 

We made the chart above this morning and it's the only chart we're even able to make. We'll cover two of the six 600 SSD products with reviews later today, 240GB and 480GB, both 7mm models. We'll also bring back our RAID Report reviews starting today with two 240GB 7mm drives.

 

The 600 SSD has two form factors, 5mm and 7mm z-height. Each form factor gets broken down into three capacity sizes 480GB, 240GB and 120GB.
