The new firmware offers improved performance when used with Microsoft Windows 7 and increases the maximum read and write speed of both the UltraDrive ME and UltraDrive LE. Each UltraDrive is designed for notebook computers or devices supporting 2.5-inch drives; it features shock and vibrations resistance as well as high tolerance to extreme temperatures.
According to the company, the new firmware increases the read speed of the UltraDrive ME and LE up-to 260GBps, while enhancing the write performance to a maximum of 200GBps for the ME, and up-to 210GBps for the LE.
