Zotac Premium Edition SSD Announced – See Features, Specs and Price

Zotac recently announced their Premium Edition SSD (Solid State Drives), comprising of a 240GB and 480GB capacity. Many of you might not be aware that the company already released a 120GB capacity some time ago. The Zotac 120GB SSD have a maximum sequential read speed of 520MB/s, but the sequential write speed is only 170MB/s, which is pretty slow for an SSD. The new Zotac Premium Edition SSD offers a much faster sequential write speed of up to 500MB/s, thanks to the new Phison S10 quad core controller and Toshiba NAND flash. Check out more details about Zotac’s Premium Edition SSD from the official news below.

Data Protection
With data moving in and out at incredible speeds, data corruption can be an occurrence. The ZOTAC Premium Edition SSDs feature technology that enhances data protection, including:

  • End to End Data Path Protection – detects and corrects any errors along the paths that your data takes between the DRAM, controller, and NAND
  • SmartECC – reconstructs bad/faulty pages when regular ECC checks fail
  • SmartRefresh – monitoring the health status of ECC blocks and refreshing blocks intermittently to advance data retention
  • Power Failure Protection – minimizing the time data is housed in the cache to prevent data loss during unexpected power outage
  • Dynamic Wear Leveling – ensuring that the use of the NAND is spread out to extend the SSD’s lifespan
