ADATA XPG SX910 SSDs feel the need for speed

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.
