Computex 2015 - Buying an SSD isn't easy these days as there are countless options: 2.5-inch, SATA 6Gbps, SATA 10Gbps, NVMe, PCIe SSDs, different controllers and much more. But Seagate was demonstrating its reference SSDs powered by their SandForce SF3500 controller.






The company was demoing an SF3500-based M.2 2280 SATA reference SSD at Computex 2015 with 500MB/sec+ performance in 80/20 mixed read/write workloads. The drive is powered by the latest 15nm MLC NAND flash from Toshiba, where performance is maintained at a much higher level than competing drives.




The SSD was so good at multi-threaded performance that Seagate were demonstrating the SF3500 controller running 9 x 1080p videos at once, from the single SSD.
