Super Talent, a top supplier of superior DRAM and flash components, on Wednesday unveiled its new MasterDrive SX family of solid-state drives that are supposed to be relatively affordable, yet, provide performance of more advanced solutions powered by more sophisticated types of flash memory.

“We developed the MasterDrive SX series to offer extreme reliability at an aggressive price point that makes sense for mobile professionals and enthusiasts. Moreover, these drives boast power efficiency and write speeds that few SSDs can match,” said Super Talent director of marketing Joe James.

The MasterDrive SX is based on an advanced 8-channel controller, MLC NAND flash, and 128MB of DRAM cache so to ensure up to 220MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 200MB/s. Considering the fact that Super Talent’s premium UltraDrive single-level cell (SLD) powered SSDs provides sequential read speed of up 230MB/s and sequential write speed of up 170MB/s, the new family has all chances to become rather popular.

But while SLC flash is more reliable compared to MLC, Super Talent claims that its new SX-series is made according to the highest standards of quality and will be able to serve for a long time.

MasterDrive SX SSDs are available now in capacities up to 256GB through online stores with prices for the 128GB drive of around $359.
