Seagate's 2013 Consumer and Enterprise SSD Product Overview

By: Chris Ramseyer | Editorials in Storage | Posted: May 7, 2013 12:00 pm

Seagate 600 Pro SSD




The new Seagate 600 Pro is another SATA model with an LAMD controller and Toshiba 19nm Toggle Mode flash, type C. In our meeting, Seagate stated the 600 Pro would ship with Samsung flash, but our sample shipped with Toshiba Toggle, just like the 600.




In our review, you'll see some significant differences between the Pro and non-Pro SATA SSD's. The Pro ships with host power-loss protection and even uses a different PCB design. We'll have both an enterprise and enthusiast review of the 600 Pro later today.




When asked about the 600 Pro's cross over potential, Seagate representatives said they expect to see some cross over. We expected as much given the product branding scheme, but the real test will come when the drives hit e-tail websites and we have an indication of the cost difference between the 600 and 600 Pro.




UPDATE - At the last moment before launch, Seagate sent us their spec sheet on the 600 Pro, it's pictured above.
