Team Group Announces its M.2 SSD Lineup

Team Group has just launched its next generation form factor high-speed TM4PS4/TM8PS4 M.2 SSDs, which are said to provide a great solution for mobile computing due to their data saving performance, ultra compact size and lightweight.

The TM4PS4/TM8PS4 SSDs come with the next generation SATA III R3.0 6Gb/s transmission interface, which is also backward compatible with the R2.0 interface. The SSDs also come in two sizes, 22 x 42 mm and 22 x 80 mm, being suitable for most compact portable devices.

In terms of performance, the TM4PS4 SSD is said to have a read speed of up to 550 MB/s (ATTO), 520 MB/s (Crystal Disk Mark) and write speed of up to 150 MB/s (both), while also coming with 70K IOPS for the 128GB SDD and 40K IOPS for the 256GB SSD. In contrast, the TM8PS4 SSD comes with up to 560 MB/s (ATTO), 530 MB/s (Crystal Disk Mark) read speeds and up to 300 MB/s (both) write speeds, having a 73K IOPS for the 128GB version and 70K IOPS for the 256GB version.

Both the TM4PS4 and TM8PS4 have a 0.3W power consumption in idle, while providing an almost identical 1.1W and 1.2W respectively consumption while reading operations. Due to the double amount of write speed, the power consumed by the TM8PS4 jumps to 2.9 W, while the TM4PS4 stays at a 1.9 W mark.

Team Group has fitted both the M.2 SSDs with advanced garbage collection technology, wear levelling TRIM command and DevSleep mode. With a MTBF of 1.5 million hours and a 3-year limited warranty, the TM4PS4/TM8PS4 M.2 SSDs prove to be a good storage solution for any PC or laptop device.
