PNY unveils CS900 series SSDs

Entry-level SSDs

PNY has shown their new CS900 series of SSDs based on 3D NAND Flash memory. With the CS900 series PNY offers a unit based on a Phison S11 controller, which is an updated version of the Phison S10 controller, whereas the older version could be found in other PNY series. All the new drives feature a 2.5 inch package.

These units come with a SATA-III interface so the performance is not going to be a surprise. As expected the CS900 SSDs are able to max out the SATA-III interface, hitting up to 535MB/s sequential read and 515MB/s for sequential writes. In the case of 4K speeds 86'000/81'000 IOPS are achieved regarding random reads/writes. PNY is not mentioning endurance in TBW (Terabytes Written) or the mean time before failure (MTBF). In addition this unit supports S.M.A.R.T., TRIM and NCQ, which is what you expect it to support.

The CS900 SSDs will be available with 120GB, 240GB, 480GB and 960GB of storage capacity and they'll be covered by a 3-year warranty plan. So far PNY has not revealed any details on pricing and availability but we're sure it won't take very long until those drives are going to be listed on the usual price comparison portals.
