From SanDisk: New Client SATA SSD Delivers Blazingly Fast, Sustained Speed for Graphics-Intensive Environments
COMPUTEX 2014 — TAIPEI, Taiwan — June 3, 2014 — SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions, today announced the availability of its new SanDisk Extreme PRO SSD—a drive designed for gamers, PC enthusiasts and media professionals who demand the highest possible consistent, real-world performance1. With sequential read speeds of 550 megabytes/second (MB/S) and write speeds of up to 520 MB/s, the SanDisk Extreme PRO loads and runs graphics-intensive applications and game levels in a heartbeat. Additionally, by offering up to 1TB-Class of capacity, the SanDisk Extreme PRO SSD provides the space needed to store even the biggest programs, games or files, and load them blazingly fast—transforming any PC or console into a serious gaming machine.
“Building off the success of our award-winning SanDisk Extreme II, the new SanDisk Extreme PRO leverages the latest developments in our innovative nCache Pro Technology to enable 24x7, real-world drive performance and responsiveness,” said Kevin Conley, senior vice president and general manager, Client Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “With its ability to deliver consistently fast computing backed by the industry’s first 10-year limited warranty, the Extreme PRO SSD delivers the performance, trusted reliability and value that enthusiasts and professionals expect from SanDisk.”
SanDisk’s nCache Pro technology utilizes a two-tiered caching architecture to optimize speed and endurance for heavy workloads, efficient multi-tasking, and incredibly fast responsiveness from desktops, laptops, and gaming consoles. The technology allows the SanDisk Extreme PRO to super-charge a PC for power gamers, developers, media professionals and PC enthusiasts who need consistent, real-world, pro-level performance for their most demanding and graphics-intensive applications.
According to DFC Intelligence, PC gaming revenue recently eclipsed console gaming and they forecast that the PC gaming market will exceed $25 billion in 20142. This increasing popularity is being largely driven by the rise of multiplayer online battle arena titles and free-to-play games. With the SanDisk Extreme PRO, an industry leading, real-world performance SSD, anyone can upgrade their PC to boot up faster, open files more quickly, and load programs, applications, and games in a fraction of the time. The SanDisk Extreme PRO is also supported by the new SanDisk SSD Dashboard application for Windows, which provides drive performance monitoring, firmware updates, manual or scheduled TRIM, secure erase, drive health, longevity, and temperature indicators, so that users can increase the operating efficiency of their SSD. The SanDisk SSD Dashboard is available for download immediately at www.sandisk.com/ssddashboard
The SanDisk Extreme PRO SSD will be available online and purchasable through SanDisk’s worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers in June.
