Memory manufacturer Hynix announces its first SSDs
Korean and second largest memory manufacturer of the world, Hynix has announced its first SSD drives. Recently we wrote that the company acquired US based Link-a-Media Devices which develops SSD controllers, which are also used in Corsairs Neutron SSD drives. The first ever Hynix’s SSD will come in a 2.5″ form factor and it consists of 20nm ONFI synchronous NAND Flash memory and they will become available in 128GB and 256GB variants.
They connect to the rest of the PC, using the SATA III interface.The company claims that the SSD achieves sequential read speeds of 510MB/s and sequential write speeds of 470MB/s. The drives support multiple management functions including the ‘TRIM’ feature to boost speed by wiping data internally. Hynix states that the drive also has an ‘End-to-End Protection’ feature to prevent data loss and encryption of data by using 128bit AES(Advanced Encryption Standard).
After Seagate today, this is another company entering the SSD market, an already competitive market. This is good for us consumers as the companies will need to compete on technology advancements and pricing.
