We’ve seen SSD prices tumble down over the past year, but if you want the best performance possible you’ll still have to cough up a significant amount of cash. ADATA has a high-speed SSD that might take your fancy, the XPG SX910. The company says the SSD is 7% larger than drives that use a SandForce controller, and thanks to optimized firmware can hit 4k random read/write speeds of 50,000 and 85,000 IOPS.
The SATA III 6Gbit/s drive has sequential read and write speeds of 550 and 530MB/s respectively. There will be three capacities offered: 128GB, 256GB,. and 512GB. Whichever option you spring for, you can rest assured knowing that the drive is covered by a five-year warranty. Putting it in a desktop rather than your aging laptop? The company is throwing in a 3.5-inch adapter too, so you can slide it straight into your tower without any troubles.
The 128GB model will set you back $189.99, the 256GB runs $379.99, and the 512GB commands a high $749.99. ADATA say the drives are available now at various retailers across the United States and Canada, so start searching.
