Toshiba Electronics has announced the availability in Europe of its first solid-state drive (SSD) products based on the firm's 19nm multi-level cell (MLC) Nand flash technology.
First announced last year but just shipping now, the THNSNH family of SSDs are designed to meet user requirements for high performance and power efficiency in applications covering high-end laptops, tablets, desktop PCs and industrial computers, according to Toshiba.
The drives are available in a standard 2.5in drive form factor with a choice of 7mm and 9.5mm profiles in capacities of 512GB, 256GB, 128GB and 60GB.
Alternatively, more compact mSata modules are available for small form factor devices in capacities of 256GB, 128GB and 60GB.
Toshiba claims the new products are among the world's smallest and highest density Nand flash drives available, although they are not the first 19nm products to hit the market.
All the drives support a 6Gbit/s Sata host interface, with read speeds of up to 534MB/s and write speeds up to 482MB/s, depending on the capacity of the drive.
The drives also internally make use of Toshiba's Quadruple Swing-By Code (QSBC), for detecting and correcting errors in the stored data.
The firm had not provided any pricing details when contacted by V3. We'll update this if we receive any information from Toshiba.
