Super Talent, Toshiba Team Up to Make SSD

The SSD offerings have just gotten bigger with a new co-branded drive from Super Talent and Toshiba.

The two companies this week announced a new SSD line, dubbed the UltraDrive DX, that is designed for reliability and security.

Super Talent detailed in a press release that the first level of security for the UltraDrive DX is an encrypted password. The second level of protection the DX incorporates is new hardware data randomization technology, which happens automatically with every write to the drive to prevent unauthorized copying of blocks of data.

Hardware data randomization does not affect the drive's performance, which is quoted at sequential read speeds of up to 230 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 180 MB/sec.

“As the first Toshiba co-branded SSD on the market, UltraDrive DX features a Toshiba controller and Toshiba’s MLC NAND flash memories.The DX provides superb security and reliability features combined with cutting edge performance in both read and write speeds”, explained Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James.

    The prices arent too bad. Except maybe for the 512GB where over a grand is ridiculous.
