[BitTech] A-Data SATA 6Gb/s SSDs

As you would expect, A-Data has tried to take full advantage of the increase in data transfer capabilities offered by the SATA 6Gb/sec interface, pushing the Toshiba MLC NAND chips to their limit via the Marvell-based controller and offering speeds of 480MB/sec read and 310MB/sec write - although the company warns that these figures will suffer if the drive is connected to a SATA 3Gb/sec controller.
Can't wait to see the reviews on these.... Marvell really needs to partner with more companies.


Also, why didn't Crucial get first dibs on these?

I really picked a bad time to build my PC back in March.
This SSD is most likely going to a laptop in the future.

SSD prices are mostly the cost of NAND.

If anyone's wondering like I was, the 64gb model (converted by Google) is $224 in USD.

SATA 6GB/s = SATA 3 right? Good thing my motherboard supports it.

But you were fear-mongering without any facts.

A single 64Gb (8GB) chip costs about $10. A 64GB SSD therefore uses $80 worth of NAND. Of course, you have to add in the cost of controller, PCB, warranty, assembly, DRAM, etc.... So it is clear that at least half the cost of all SSDs is in the NAND.

There is no such thing as SATA 3. SATA 6Gb/s is the third major revision of the the SATA protocol (not counting eSATA).


You don't want to use the SATA 6Gb/s ports on your mobo for SSDs. It uses a 3rd party controller which hurts latency/IOPs.

I see, I just thought there was because of the box to my motherboard.


Thanks for the info though
