Transcend Information, Inc. announced the release of its SATA III 6Gb/s N8S750 M.2 and MSA340 mSATA solid state drives (SSD). Featuring ultra compact dimensions and the next generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface, Transcend’s N8S750 and MSA340 SSDs are best suited to address the strict size limitations and high performance needs of today’s advanced portable devices.
The N8S750 SSD’s space-saving 80mm M.2 form factor (80.0mm x 22.0mm x 3.5mm) is designed to meet future market demands of ultra-thin and light mobile devices that require an SSD, including Ultrabooks, notebooks, tablets, portable gaming systems, and smartphones. It features the latest SATA III 6Gb/s specification, DDR3 DRAM cache, and is comprised of high-quality MLC NAND Flash chips. With exceptional transfer speeds of up to 520MB/s read and 330MB/s write, the N8S750 easily handles everyday computing tasks as well as demanding multimedia applications.
