Hunan RUNCORE Innovation Technology CO, LTD is going to be a new name for many of our readers, but don't be fooled, RunCore was founded on 10 years of research at the National University of Defense Technology and currently offers three solid-state storage series products aimed at optimizing and harnessing speed, quality, value, simplicity and power for prosumer, industrial and military solid-state drive markets. These products are electronic solid-state hard disks, E-drive speed disks and the run-storage solid-state storage arrays which are used in military equipment, industrial control, commercial servers, embedded computers and personal computers.
For the past two weeks TweakTown has worked with RunCore giving them feedback on their solid state mini PCIe drive developed for the Dell Mini 9 and new Pro IV SSD products. Today we will be looking at the new RunCore Pro IV SSD built with the Indilinx controller that is currently taking the SSD market by storm. The plan was to test and report on the entire product range from the top to the bottom, 32, 64, 12 and 256GB capacities, but a small mix up in shipping took the 32GB off of the table and left us with matching 128GB drives for a RAID 0 article to come in a couple of days.
We have been playing with several drives that use the new Indilinx controller in the lab for the last few weeks and the results have all been very positive. It is important to remember that just because two products use the same chipset that their performance is generally not identical. Just like when Intel makes a chipset, companies try to work their magic to meet different goals. DFI is generally not looking to accomplish the same thing as say ECS. Even though all of the Indilinx controller drives we have tested have been fast, some are faster than others and the Pro IV fits into that category. Let's now have a look and see what RunCore's Pro IV is all about.
