AMP Inc Launches Line of SATAsfaction SSDs

Santa Ana, California-based Accelerated Memory Production (AMP) Inc. is developing a new family of Sandforce SATA-II 2.5-inch solid state drives (SSDs) for server and mobile use. Dubbed as the "SATAsfaction" SSDs, the drives will come in both SLC and MLC versions, and will range between 32GB and 256 GB storage capacities.

According to Tech Connect Magazine, the new line features a SATA 3.0 Gbps interface, 32 and 64 MB of buffer memory, native Command Queuing support, and built-in 12 byte per sector ECC and EDC to ensure error-free transactions. The drives will also deliver a maximum read speed of 260MB/s, and write speeds of up to 150MB/s.

"Data protection makes the SATA-II SSD an ideal storage solution for the server, embedded defense and mobile environment," AMP Inc's Linda Deming told Benchmark Reviews. "Due to its non-mechanical nature it has higher shock resistance and lower access time than a traditional rotating hard disk."

The SATAsfaction line also supports Trim, PIO, UMDA-6, advanced power management, and more. So far pricing and availability hasn't been set, however consumers should expect to pay hefty prices for the SLD NAND versions when they become available.
