Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Available in three capacity sizes, the Extreme II is an affordable Hyper-Class SSD featuring premium 19nm, eX2 ABL MLC, 3K P/E toggle mode NAND. The Extreme is powered by Marvell's 8 channel "Monet" 88SS9187 SSD processor, providing sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 340 MB/s.
SanDisk backs the Extreme II with an industry leading five year warranty. The 120GB SanDisk Extreme II is available from Newegg or Amazon for $140. Since this is a RAID report, we are going to focus on performance rather than features. For a more in-depth look at SanDisk's Extreme II feature set, I will refer you to Chris Ramseyer's extensive review.
SanDisk's Extreme II is the recipient of TweakTown's prestigious Best of Computex 2013 award in the SSD category:
Chris Ramseyer writes: "The SanDisk Extreme II is the company's latest flagship SSD and the winner of our Best of Computex 2013 SSD award. Featuring the Marvell 88SS9187 controller and SanDisk's own 19nm ABL NAND Flash with nCache, the Extreme II brings an entirely new experience to power users. nCache technology reduces MLC latency to SLC levels. With each die shrink write latency increases and nCache is SanDisk's home grown solution for fighting back against this trend.
Available in three capacity sizes, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB, the Extreme II increases performance over the Extreme SSD and does it with both compressible and incompressible data. Priced well for a flagship SSD, the Extreme II is a superior next generation product that actually manages to increase performance at a time when others are falling back."
