With the SE700 portable SSD, ADATA is one of the first adopters of USB 3.1 host interface, and its new Type-C connector standard. This isn't just a blind compliance upgrade, but one that comes with genuine benefits. To begin with, the drive offers sequential transfer rates of up to 819 MB/s, with up to 839 MB/s writes, which show that the drive clearly takes advantage of the 10 Gb/s interface bandwidth. Internally, the SE700 is a host-transparent RAID 0 array of two SSDs. The drive itself is roughly as big as a 2.5-inch internal SSD, featuring a piano black body with chrome accents. USB 3.1 and its Type-C connector are the flavor of the season, and so expect ADATA to launch this drive very soon.
