Intel's VROC (NVMe RAID) technology
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've been hearing about Intel's VROC (NVMe RAID) technology for a few months now. ASUS started slipping clues in with their X299 motherboard releases starting back in May. The idea was very exciting, as prior NVMe RAID implementations on Z170 and Z270 platforms were bottlenecked by the chipset's PCIe 3.0 x4 DMI link to the CPU, and they also had to trade away SATA ports for M.2 PCIe lanes in order to accomplish the feat. X99 motherboards supported SATA RAID and even sported four additional ports, but they were left out of NVMe bootable RAID altogether. It would be foolish of Intel to launch a successor to their higher end workstation-class platform without a feature available in two (soon to be three) generations of their consumer platform.

ADATA SD700 External SSD Wins Good Design Award2017
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 1:27A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of highperformance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories is proud to announce that the SD700 external 3D NAND SSD has been bestowed with a Good Design Award 2017. Hosted by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion, Good Design Awards (or “G Marks”) are considered among the most prestigious and respectable design accolades in the world.

www.pcstats.com

The SD700 was selected by the Good Design panel for its delivery of professional-grade durability in a highly compact, portable, and lively design package. The SD700 boasts IEC IP68-rated dust and waterproofing plus US Army MIL-STD-810G shock resistance, yet does not resort to a bulky or rough appearance. Instead, ADATA designers have achieved an appealing multi-element presentation, with a pliable wraparound material co-existing alongside a tough internal shell. The SD700 fits easily in the palm of a hand and weighs just 75g. It is offered in yellow/black and all-black color scheme options. ADATA is truly honored that the SD700 has secured a place among the select few chosen for a 2017 Good Design Award, showing it is indeed in esteemed company. The SD700 was selected from many hundreds of entries, indicating its dual successes as technological innovation and work of art.

Durability and technological innovation combined

The SD700 offers consumers a 3D NAND SSD capable of up to 440MB/s read and write, four times faster than ruggedized external HDDs. Its 3D NAND enables higher density, faster performance, and increased reliability compared to older 2D NAND. The SD700 is available in up to 1TB capacity, and provides near universal compatibility via USB with PC, Mac, and game consoles.

About the Good Design Award

Organized by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP), the Good Design Award is a comprehensive annual program dedicated to the evaluation and commendation of technology design. The award’s origins stem from the "Good Design Selection System" award established in 1957 by Japan’s Ministry of International Trade and Industry. Since then, the award has been bestowed upon approximately 40,000 outstanding designs for more than 55 years.

Posted by: STAFF
With their OCZ TR 200 series, Toshiba has a line of SSDs in their portfolio that comes with BiCS3 memory, which is based on 3D-NAND with 64 layers. This allows the vendors to crate high capacity drives at aggressive price points. Looking for the controller we find the proven TC58 from Toshiba and we're rather curious to find out how this drive does in our review.

Posted by: STAFF
On OCinside.de we have an external Samsung T5 Portable 500GB USB 3.1 SSD in the test, today. The special feature of this external USB SSD is that it supports USB 3.1 Gen2 at up to Gb/s and can reach or even exceed speeds of an internal SATA3 SSD. The matching USB 3.1 Type-C cable and USB-C to USB 3.1 Type-A cable are included in the delivery. In the following Samsung Portable SSD T5 review we will clarify if the performance in practice succeeds and we also explain what you can do if the USB 3.1 port is too slow. Of course we compare the external USB 3.1 SSD with dozens of SSD benchmarks and show infrared thermal images of the new Samsung T5 SSD as well.
