    Flash memory specialist Apacer is expanding its footprint with the A7 Turbo high performance solid-state drive (SSD). This 2.5-inch form-factor SSD comes in capacities of 128 GB and 256 GB. It uses cached transfer with a 128 MB cache memory. The A7 Turbo offers read/write speeds of 230/200 MB/s, with an average power consumption of a mere 0.26 W. The drive comes with SSD+ Optimizer that works in the background to minimize file fragmentation. The drive will be available soon.

    Unless I'm mistaken aren't SSD's more efficient if the files are fragmented?

    No, "SSDs more efficient when the files are fragmented compared to mechanical drives" is the complete statement.

    And no, Apacer has nothing to do with Acer.
     
    Kenshai says thanks.

    I hope they didn't just focus on the case...

    Those "turbo" speeds are probably the cache hits. I wonder how it performs in real-world.
