Today Toshiba unveiled their latest range of retail solid state drives (SSDs) called the TR200 SATA Retail SSD Series, which is particularly interesting because it comes equipped with 64-Layer 3D flash memory.
The series was unveiled during the China Digital Entertainment Expo & Conference (ChinaJoy) in Shanghai, China, however, it will also be shown off in Europe so you will be able to take a look during the GamesCom conference from August 22nd to August 26th.
And you’ll probably want to do that because it sounds like a pretty awesome drive.
Toshiba has designed it to operate on low power consumption but still with great performance that includes read/write speeds of up to 550 MB/s and 525 MB/s respectively. It also features a random read/write performance of up to 80,000 and 87,000 input/output operations per second
Alex Mei, vice president consumer SSDs and storage outbound marketing, at Toshiba America Electronics Corporation, Inc explained more about the drive:
