Kingston has been peddling SSDs to the consumer and enterprise user for a while now and has a vast range of capacities and offerings to choose from. The company has announced its latest SSD that is specifically aimed at the enterprise users in corporate client systems. The new SSD has a strange storage capacity of 96GB.
The SSD has some features for enhanced garbage collection that allow the feature to be used on OS' that don't specifically support garbage collection. That means it is capable of collecting garbage bits on TRIM and non-TRIM OS'. The new 96GB SSD falls into the SSDNow V+ family and is the SSDNow V+100.
The special always-on garbage collection feature is important and is able to cleanse redundant data to prevent the degradation in performance of the drive and to maintain the drive over the life cycle. The drive is a 2.5-inch form factor and slots into the family along with the 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB versions. It has sequential write speed of 180MB/s and sequential read of 230MB/s.
