ZOTAC launched a new line of storage devices aimed at offering enduring speed in desktops, notebooks, and external storage as it becomes an essential to every PC. Available in 240GB and 480GB capacities, the Premium Edition SSDs bring with it a suite of features. At the heart sits a quad-core Phison SSD controller and MLC NAND for marathon reliability with up to 480 TBW and up to 3,000 PE cycles. With robust performance delivering sequential read/write speeds of up to 520MBps and 500MBps, the Premium Edition SSDs are within a hair's width of the SATA III bandwidth saturation point.
With data moving in and out at high speeds, data corruption can be an occurrence. The ZOTAC Premium Edition SSDs feature technology that enhances data protection, including:
- End to End Data Path Protection – detects and corrects any errors along the paths that your data takes between the DRAM, controller, and NAND
- SmartECC – reconstructs bad/faulty pages when regular ECC checks fail
- SmartRefresh – monitoring the health status of ECC blocks and refreshing blocks intermittently to advance data retention
- Power Failure Protection – minimizing the time data is housed in the cache to prevent data loss during unexpected power outage
- Dynamic Wear Leveling – ensuring that the use of the NAND is spread out to extend the SSD's lifespan
All ZOTAC SSDs are backed by three year warranty.
