ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 SATA 6Gb/s solid state drive. As the market presence of slim laptops and ultrabooks continues to grow, M.2 form factor SSDs are increasingly the preferred main storage choice due to limited internal chassis space. This applies to factory installs as well as user upgrades. Loaded with advanced features and technologies, the extremely light Premier SP550 M.2 2280 provides high speed performance alongside superior stability and efficiency to those delivered by mechanical 2.5" drives, resulting in a powerful yet affordable solution.
Compact size with high speed and density
While the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 measures just 22x80x3.5mm, it is available in up to 480GB and upgrades slim laptops and ultrabooks without compromising performance. Its maximum read/write speeds are 560/510MB per second, with 4K random read at up to 75K IOPS thanks to a high quality SMI controller and SLC caching technology. The latter allows the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 to operate in simulated SLC (single-level cell) mode for a performance boost. DRAM cache buffer functionality (where the SSD uses system RAM as a temporary, ultra-fast cache) also enhances read/write performance by as much as double that of solid state drives that lack a DRAM cache.
High efficiency and longevity
To improve SSD stability and data integrity, the Premier SP550 M.2 2280 is equipped with RAID engine and data shaping technologies, attaining extended lifespan for better, longer-lasting stability and return on investment. It also supports LDPC (low density parity check) error correction technology to reduce data errors, increase data integrity, and improve transfer quality. Furthermore, DEVSLP (device sleep) mode reduces power consumption and prolongs battery lifespan, an excellent feature for laptop users that want extended usability and portability.
Easy management and data migration
As with all ADATA SSDs, every Premier SP550 M.2 2280 purchase qualifies for free downloads of the ADATA SSD Toolbox software suite as well as data and operating system migration utilities. This range of value-added software makes drive backup and management effortless. SSD Toolbox allows users to monitor and manage the Premier SP550 M.2 2280, with drive status, wear level, and lifespan information. Data migration utilities are especially helpful for users making the move from HDD to SSD, designed for simple and quick backup and migration of the contents of entire drives, including the operating system.
SP550 M.2 2280 SATA 6Gb/s solid state drive will be available at Amazon.com and Newegg.com.
