Transcend announced a new SSD and this one is designed more for industrial and embedded applications than consumer systems. The new Transcend SSD570 solid state drive is built with SLC NAND for reliability and comes with a great feature set.
The Transcend SSD570 features the normal SMART, TRIM, Garbage collection, and wear leveling features that we find in all SSDs these days, but it also comes with the newer Device Sleep mode to decrease power consumption when idle as well as IPS function to prevent loss of data. The Intelligent Power Shield (IPS) function assures more data volume being written into flash chips in the event of sudden power loss. IPS function prolongs the time before the SSD enters write protection mode at the onset of power cut-off to ensure data integrity and to prevent the SSD from damage during a sudden power failure or blackouts. The Transcend SSD570 also features built-in ECC to give it a complete feature set for its designated field of operations.
The SSD570 is built with Transcend’s own TS6500 SSD controller and high-quality SLC NAND flash. It can perform sequential reads with up to 510MB/s and writes up to 450MB/s. The use of SLC NAND over MLC NAND should give higher stability in data retention and longer endurance as well as lower error rates.
Transcend SSD570 is available in 64GB and 128GB and backed by a three-year limited warranty.
