Four capacities of thin SSDS to be used in slim, standard storage applications

Adata, known for their RAM and flash media, has announced their newest solid state drive (SSD) offerings with the 2.5-inch Premier SP610 series. The series offers four different capacities of the drive, using synchronous MLC NAND, all sized for use with both desktop and slim PCs.

Coming in capacities to fit most system needs, the Premier SP610 SSDs will be available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB sizes. Sequential read/write speeds for the drives are capable of up to 560/450 MB per second on the 1TB SSD. Random 4 KB read/write speeds can hit 73,000/72,000 IOPS on the 1TB, according to data from the company. Speeds decrease down at the bottom of the line, with the 128GB drive doing 560/150 MB per second on the read/write test and 66,000/35,000 IOPS on the 4K random test.

All of the drives are built for the SATA III (6Gb per second) standard, with BCH error correction code of up to 66 bit/1 KB. Premier SP610 drives are said to only consume 0.3 watts of power when idle, with average power consumption at 0.08 watts. The SP610 SSDs sport a thickness of only 7mm, making them thin enough to fit inside of slim PCs. For users looking for normal applications, Adata has included a 2.5 mm spacer and a 3.5 inch tray to allow the drives to be used in standard PC cases.

MSRP for the drives is currently listed as $70 for the 128GB version and $120 for the 256GB capacity. Adata says the drives will be available at Amazon and Newegg, but they are not currently listed.
