Crucial announced their Crucial BX200 solid state drive (SSD), which offers affordable performance. The drive, designed for consumers and SMBs, allows users to load applications in seconds, boot up almost instantly, and accelerate every day applications.
The new BX200 provides sequential read and write speeds up to 540 MB/s and 490 MB/s respectively on all types of data, as well as random read and write speeds up to 66k and 78k IOPS respectively. Additionally, when compared to a typical hard drive, the new BX200 is more than 13 times faster and 40 times more energy efficient for almost instantaneous access to data, resulting in longer battery life and a cooler, quieter system. The new drive utilises a Silicon Motion SM2256 Controller and is coupled with Micron verified firmware, allowing users to upgrade their existing infrastructure at an affordable price, which is a great alternative to buying a whole new system.
Robert Fan, vice president and general manager of Silicon Motion U.S.A., said, "We are excited about our latest partnership with Crucial on the new BX200 SSD. Our high-performance and low power consumption SM2256 controller combined with Micron 16nm TLC NAND helps make the BX200 reliable, fast, energy efficient and affordable."
In the USA prices for the 240GB-, 480GB- and 960GB-ssd's repectively are 84,99, 149,99 and 299,99 dollar. Here in the EU Crucial places focus on the 480GB-model with a price of 149,99 euro.
