KINGMAX Announces SandForce-Based SMG Titan SSDs

E-mail Print

kingmax_smg_titan_ssd.pngThe KINGMAX SME Xvalue super value SSD has become the first choice for entry-level users after it was released. In response to the continued increase of market demands for SSD, KINGMAX has again released a new product – the Full Capacity SMG Titan.

KINGMAX is a manufacturer of memory-related products; products are sold globally and it has over 200 dealers around the world. The opening of new capacities for NAND Flash on the market, drove prices of the SSD down to the sweet spot, which helped increase the permeability of SSDs into the market. KINGMAX SSD products series are also expected to benefit from this.

There are many brands available on the market. The problem of capacity vacuity is frequently seen, which causes consumers to be suspicious. KINGMAX has always paid extra attention to the problem of specifications. The SATAIII Full Capacity SSD released this time comes in four capacities for consumers to choose from: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. The SMG Titan also used a SandForce control chip with high speed NAND Flash kernels and the standard SATAIII 6GB/s interface; it uses flash memory to store data and has a maximum reading speed of 550MB/s while the writing speed can also reach 520MB/s. The SMG Titan also supports RAISE fault-tolerant technology and can perform redundant storage to the data; it also supports Error Correction Code (ECC) and Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC). The use of wear measurement and NAND Flash chip monitoring functions can prolong the lifespan of the NAND Flash chip, so not only is the durability of the product increased, the security of the data is also enhanced. What’s more surprising is that the SSD SMG Titan can be stored under environments with temperatures between -55°C~95°C, already enterprise-level specification. To buy such high-specification products at the price of consumer products is definitely worth every penny!

A cup of coffee with a light charcoal fragrance is placed on the office desk, the slightly shiny top cover of the PD-10 is gently removed, the PD-10 is inserted in the USB slot, the person is focusing on the monitor screen and clicking the file to access… every image is as beautiful as a postcard and the PD-10 is an essential part of it. The neat and simple top cover design can prevent the problem of losing the cap; and the 605x185x9mm body dimension is ergonomic. It will be difficult to hold if it is too small, and will take up too much space if it is too big; the perfect-size design simply makes people love it. The USB 3.0 flash drive PD-10 is downwards compatible with USB 2.0 specifications, and its plug & play functions etc are most needed by users. It also has high compatibility and can be widely applied on systems including Win8, Win7, Vista, XP, 2000, Max OSV10.6.1 and Linux Kernel V2.6.x etc.

Marvell Launches 88SS1083 PCIe SSD Controller Supporting SATA Express

E-mail Print

Marvell today announced the launch of its new 88SS1083 PCI Express (PCIe) solid state drive (SSD) controller —a two-lane PCIe Gen2 SSD controller. With performance transfer rates up to 1GB/s, Marvell’s 88SS1083 controller allows SSD manufacturers to offer PCIe SSD at price parity to SATA SSD. The Marvell 88SS1083 is the industry’s first controller to be fully compliant with the SATA Express standard, which leverages the most popular PCIe interface and brings in low latency, dual-lane support and 1GB/s data transfer rate.

The new 88SS1083 controller also supports Separate RefClock with Independent SSC (SRIS), a critical feature as it eliminates the need for an expensive shielded cable for minimizing noise and instead allows for a cost-effective SATA Express cable. SATA Express host can connect either high-performance SATA Express SSDs or traditional SATA devices at similar accessory costs.

"Improving performance while maintaining low power becomes more important than ever, especially for today's ultrathin notebooks and tablets," said Rajan Pai, Vice President, Sales and Field Applications Engineering at Marvell. "The new 88SS1083 allows SSD OEMs to offer higher performance, PCIe-based SSD solutions at similar prices to SATA and is quickly becoming the controller of choice for global OEMs. Marvell is proudly pioneering a new generation of high-performance and low-power silicon solutions that is driving our industry forward."
