SanDisk Announces Extreme II, U110 and i110 SSDs
SanDisk is announcing the release of the SanDisk Extreme II, U110 and i110 SSDs which are designed for OEMs and extend SanDisk's line-up by offering drives that match a range of applications. The new Extreme II SSD is designed for high-performance computing for gamers, multimedia enthusiasts and other users who require high IOPS. The U110 and i110 SSDs are matched for OEMs to implement in notebooks and other mobile solutions. All of the SSDs are built on 19nm NAND for reliability, responsiveness and energy-efficiency. Here at StorageReview, we've already gotten access to the SanDisk Extreme II for review, which comes in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB and offers 80 terabytes written (TBW) over the drive warranty.
The SanDisk U110 and i110 SSDs enhance SanDisk's ultra-portable SSD line. Built on 19nm lithography, the SSDs offer quick performance and advanced power-management features necessary for ultra-thin notebooks and tablets. The U110 SSD is cost-effective and responsive, and its primary feature is that it is available in multiple formats: Half-Slim SATA, mSATA, mSATA mini, 2.5” cased and M.2. The i110 iSSD is SanDisk's smallest SSD which provides up to 128GB of storage in a compact BGA form factor. The two exact dimensions in which it's available are 16x20mm and 12x16mm. That size optimizes the drive for ultra-thin and light notebooks as well as convertible laptops (tablet+notebook functionality).
SanDisk is also announcing that their SanDisk X110 SSD is now shipping in an mSATA form factor with capacities at 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. The new mSATA SanDisk X110 SSD is now available through SanDisk for Business.
