Transcend Announces Upgraded SSDs

Transcend Information, Inc. has unveiled its new series of 2.5″ SSDs, featuring a new advanced controller. Available in capacities of 32Gb, 64Gb, 128Gb and 256Gb, the SSDs are encased in tamper-resistant enclosures and feature 64Mb DDR2 DRAM cache, TRIM support, Error Correction Code (ECC) functionality, static wear leveling, a SATA II interface, and support data transfer rates up to 260Mb/s (read) and 240Mb/s (write). Transcend’s 2.5″ SATA SSDs are covered by a two-year limited warranty and are expected to start shipping soon.


Transcend Information, Inc., a global leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the launch of its upgraded 2.5″ solid state drives (SSDs). Built on a faster and newer controller, the revamped SSDs provide random read speeds of up to 40MB/s, resulting in significantly faster system boot up and application launch performance.

The newly released SSDs are available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities. Thanks to their use of the new advanced controller chip and 64MB of built-in DDR2 DRAM cache memory, the new SSDs feature sequential read and write speeds up to 260MB/s and 240MB/s, and random read/write speeds of 40MB/s and 27MB/s. This dramatically improved performance not only reduces average system boot times, but also offers stutter-free response and stability for netbooks, notebooks, high-end gaming PCs and industrial computers. Users can also take advantage of their cool, noiseless operation to enjoy the perks of silent and practical computing.

For added value, Transcend’s new 2.5″ SSDs fully support the TRIM command used by modern operating systems to help maintain optimum write speeds and reduce long-term SSD wear. Engineered for long life and maximum reliability, the upgraded SSDs have built-in Error Correction Code (ECC) functionality and static wear leveling that evenly distributes data written to or erased from the drive’s flash memory cells. All models are guaranteed to conform to RoHS standards for manufacturing without the use of hazardous materials.
Transcend’s 2.5″ SATA SSDs are extremely durable and are built with a robust tamper-resistant outer casing. All Transcend 2.5″ Solid State Drives are backed by a two-year limited warranty.
