The SSD wrk for Mac delivers 72,000 IOPS (Input/Output operations per second) and the access time is less than 0.1 milliseconds. Customer security is provided by the five-year warranty.
The case of the SSD wrk for Mac is made of high quality, matt black anodized aluminum, housing custom packed Multi-Level-Cell NANDs from Micron and the SMI 2246EN controller. Durability is guaranteed by the MTBF of at least 2 million hours. High reliability is also provided by the integrated EDC and ECC error correction capabilities.
A major focus in the design and development process of the SSD wrk for Mac was to minimize energy consumption and achieve a high efficiency - a characteristic that makes the SSD wrk for Mac the perfect choice for mobile devices. In idle mode the SSD wrk for Mac requires only 0.25 Watt (128 GB), the maximum energy consumption of the biggest current capacity of 512 GB is 2.98 Watts.
