Meanwhile Kingston, like many of their competitors, also have a SandForce SF-2281 based SSD with asynchronous NAND flash memory in their portfolio. In this review we got the chance to test their 90 Gigabyte drive, which is kind of an unusual size. But as always, were going to torture the drive and tell you what it's capable of.
Specifications / Delivery
||OCZ Synapse Cache 64 Gigabyte
||Micron 29 F64G08CBAAA
550 MB/s reading, up to 490 MB/s writing
||< 0.1 ms
Behind the scenes
Basically the V+200
from Kingston is a 90 Gigabyte SSD, which uses a
SandForce SF-2281 Controller and asynchronous NAND Flash memory from Intel.
These have been manufactured using a 25 nanometer process and the individual
chips have 29 F64G08ACME3 written on them. This indicates that the memory cells
are specified for 3'000 P/E cycles and the memory itself is connected to the
controller via ONFi 1.0 standard.
deliery you get what you need to setup the drive. There is a CD with software
for easy migration, an external casing, 3.5 inch adaptor brackets, a SATA cable
as well as a power adaptor. Altogether there really is everything you need.
