WD introduces SiliconEdge SSDs

Claims to provide read speeds of up to 250MB/s and write transfer rates up to 170MB/s

By CBR Staff Writer

WD has released SiliconEdge 2.5-inch solid state drive (SSD) in capacities up to 256 gigabytes (GB) that feature a SATA 3.0 gigabits per second (Gb/s) interface with read speeds of up to 250 megabytes per second (MB/s) and write transfer rates up to 170MB/s.

The company claims that the new SiliconEdge Blue SSDs offer fast read/write speeds and high SSD capacities, and offers maximum tolerance for drops, shock and vibration along with silent and low-power operation.

In addition, the new multi-level cell (MLC)-based SSDs feature technologies such as wear-leveling and error correction control, as well as TRIM and NCQ (Native Command Queuing) command support, WD said.

Michael Hajeck, senior vice president and general manager of solid state storage business unit at WD, said: The development of the WD SiliconEdge Blue product family leverages WD’s extensive experience in designing and manufacturing highly reliable storage products and the company’s worldwide sales and distribution network to accelerate SSD technology adoption by OEMs, technology enthusiasts, gamers and road warriors.”
