Toshiba had some hard times in the past due to the constant financial losses but it seems like that the kings of the past are recovering now! A subsidiary of the Japanese company, named OCZ has rolled out the XS700 series of portable SSDs.
What’s Under The Hood?
Speaking of what the users will get to experience, is a 95 mm x 75 mm x 11 mm drive that is slightly bigger than an internal 2.5-inch drive. Here are some of the features and specifications of the portable SSD:
- An aluminum body with diamond-cut edges
- USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) interface
- Backward compatibility to older USB generations
- A single cable plugging into the drive’s type-C connector for both power and host connectivity
- A 3D BiCS TLC NAND flash memory
- Sequential reads and writes of up to 530 MB/s and 480 MB/s respectively
- A Phison S11 DRAM-less controller wired to the NAND flash
- Connected over SATA 6 Gbps to a VIA Labs VL715 chip
The $200 XS700 Series Portable SSDs will be covered under a 3-year warranty program. Initially, the drives will be only available in a 240 GB capacity.
