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.
