The pursuit for the ultimate in speed is boundless, and ADATA leads the way in early adaptation of the latest SATA 6Gb/s transmission interface, implemented in the S501 V2 Solid State Drive (SSD). It incorporates select quality Micron chips, and high-speed transmission technology with the ONFI NAND Flash. Breaking records in actual environment tests, the S501 V2 achieves per second read speed of up to 355MB, and write speeds of up to 215MB per second write. This is almost twice the speed of a traditional SATA SSD, and many times faster than traditional hard drives.
The ADATA S501 V2 SSD leads the field in performance, so you can now enjoy the surging-speed thrill of the next generation standard.
SATA 6Gb/s Transforms the Definition of ""High-Speed"" In accordance with Serial ATA Revision 3.0 specification, based on the research and development of SATA 6Gb/s transmission interface, data transfer rates up to 6Gigabytes per second are, compared to previous generation SATA II specifications, twice as fast. Using the same cables and connectors, the new interface is backward compatible with older SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 1.5Gb/s interfaces. Overtaking not only traditional disk media, but also the SSD technology of the last few years, the ADATA S501 V2 represents a new generation in ultra-high performance specifications.
Superb Hardware and Extraordinary Features Combine to Create a New Generation of SSD The ADATA S501 V2 solid-state disk, in addition to its high-speed, is impact resistant, has low power consumption, provides noise and heat-free operation, and embodies all the benefits of previous generations of SSDs. The use of high quality and stability Micron chips ensures speed in transmission performance while enhancing data security. The introduction of the High-speed transmission technology standard: ONFI NAND, combined with a 128 MB DDR III memory cache, allows for improved data access, and higher read and write speeds. The use of active erasable compensation (Dynamic Wear Leveling) applications, not only mitigates the search time for read operations, but also reduces the number of erases, thereby increasing the lifespan of the drive.
Advanced Technology, Long-Lasting Transmission Efficiency In addition to superior hardware design, the solid state drive is a powerful tool which requires outstanding technology to achieve its full performance and speed capabilities through an extended lifespan. ADATA has brought years of experience into play, in order to fully grasp key technologies. The result is the carefully designed and engineered S501 V2 SSD. For example: the firmware, the application of techniques to enhance and extend the solid-state disk performance includes support for Windows 7, TRIM command, which handles garbage collection (GC) overhead without defragmentation. While writing data, the S501 V2 implements an intelligent algorithm, which thoroughly solves the progressive decline of transfer speeds that usually occurs with long-term disk use.
Rugged Inside, Dazzling Exterior The aluminum shell with silver etching gives an overall appearance of elegance. The product packaging includes a 3.5-inch conversion kit, allowing the drive to be used on both laptop and desktop computers.
