RunCore Intros Kylin II Enterprise SSDs with SAS Interface

RunCore released enterprise-grade variants of its Kylin II series SSDs which it introduced a few months ago in the consumer SATA interface form. The new variants come in 2.5" and 3.5" form-factors, and use the Serial attached SCSI (SAS) interface. Kylin II uses single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash, though multi-level cell (MLC) variants are also available. The Kylin II features native ECC to eliminate read/write errors. Despite the ECC overhead, the drives manage read/write speeds of up to 270 and 260 MB/s, respectively. The SandForce SF-1500 SSD processor makes use of 64 MB cache memory. The Kylin II comes in capacities ranging from 50 GB to 400 GB. Although RunCore didn't let out its pricing or availability, it is expected to cost a premium for being enterprise-grade.

I think they might blew it with pricing. $50 cheaper than the other brand at a faster read/write and people might considered ya. Then again, you can't fix price here in the US so it will be a slow start for small company.

It is found on some X58 motherboards without the need for one of those controllers yet the port count and Raid options are low end.
