Offered at superior price per gigabyte, the Petrol Series enables further adoption of storage technology designed to improve application performance and computing experiences over traditional hard drives, leveraging the SATA 6Gbps Indilinx Everest platform to deliver superior bandwidth and access and optimized for the complete spectrum of file types and sizes. Proprietary page mapping algorithms allow for steady mixed-workload performance, and advanced features unique to Indilinx include innovative latency reduction technology that enables superior read and write access times as low as 0.06ms.
Equipped with Indilinx's proprietary NDurance technology, Petrol ensures the most consistent and reliable performance as well as minimized performance degradation. Putting the benefits of SSDs within the reach of all, Petrol delivers a faster, more responsive computing experience over traditional disk storage.
- High performance SSD architectureThe Petrol series leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform to deliver up to 360 MB/s (max read) and 30,000 IOPS (max 4KB random read) at an ultra-competitive price point. It delivers faster performance with compressed data such as MP3, JPG, RAW, PSD and OS X software, and strong performance at low queue depths (QD 1 – 3). Petrol's proprietary page mapping algorithms ensure superior performance across all file sizes and mixed workloads. The Petrol series also includes a number of advanced features unique to Indilinx, including innovative latency reduction technology, enabling both read and write access times as low as 0.06ms and 0.09ms respectively. This enhances application responsiveness and enables features such as "fast boot" in consumer applications.
- Enhanced performance and endurance over the long termPetrol SSDs come equipped with Indilinx's proprietary NDurance technology, increasing the lifespan of the NAND flash memory, ensuring the most consistent and reliable performance as well as minimizing performance degradation even after the drive's storage capacity is highly utilized. Efficient NAND Flash management including dynamic and static wear-leveling, and background garbage collection ensures close to ‘fresh-out-of-the-box’ performance even after continual use.
- TRIM SUPPORTThe Petrol SSDs feature support for the Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.
