During a press conference at CES, Lite-On Storage introduced its new CV2 family of solid-state drives packed with next-generation low-density parity-check (LDPC) technology that is said to extend the endurance by up to 33%. The new drives are powered by Marvell’s four-channel 88SS1074 controller with 256-bit AES encryption and DEVSLP and coupled with Toshiba’s A19 NAND.
The result is an SSD that is rated for 2,000 program-erase cycles, comes as 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB capacities, and is backed by a three-year warranty. Sequential read performance tops out at 500 MB/s over SATA 6Gb/s, while random 4KB throughput hits the 100,000 IOPS mark
“Advances in manufacturing technology are responsible for facilitating higher-capacity SSDs at lower prices. The challenge becomes keeping their ones and zeros straight as more bits are stored in each memory cell. Today’s BCH error-correcting codes do a fair job of maintaining reliability, even faced with modern TLC NAND. But LDPC is universally accepted as the future, and Lite-On is leading the charge forward with its CV2 SSD family. The CV2 is built on Marvell’s newest mainstream processor and outfitted with an advanced implementation of LDPC. So, even as you enjoy enthusiast-class responsiveness at value-oriented prices, you can be sure the most cutting-edge storage technology is keeping your data safe.”
No word on pricing or availability yet, but expect both to follow soon.
