MyDigitalSSD Introduces BP4 mSATA SSDsTue, Jan 29, 2013 - 9:06 AM
MyDigitalSSD has announced the BP4, the 4th generation of the companies Bullet Proof line of solid state drives. BP4 SSDs feature SATA III 6Gb/s performance in 2.5” Slim 7mm and 50mm mSATA form factors to increase user productivity up to 70X. Backwards compatible with SATA II applications, the BP4 eliminates the bottle-neck found in stock hard drives; making them an ideal upgrade solution for many of today’s Tablets, UltraBooks, Hybrids (HDD/mSATA Notebooks), and Desktop PCs.
MyDigitalSSD BP4 SSDs feature the Phison S-Module III S8 controller. The Phison S-Module III S8 is based on the mSATA form factor which is generated by JEDEC, designed to operate at a maximum operating frequency of 300MHz with 40MHz external crystal. The S8 can reach 500MB/s throughput based on ONFI/Toggle NAND (with DDR3 cache enabled and measured by CrystalDiskMark) with markedly lower power consumption than that of a traditional Hard Drive. MyDigitalSSD B4 drives are available in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities for $64.00, $99.99 and $179.99, respectively.
