Transcend Announces the SSD570 Solid State Drive with SLC NAND Flash

Transcend Information, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial-grade products, is proud to introduce a new solution of SSD570 in a 2.5" form factor with the top quality SLC NAND flash embedded to its industrial product line. Taking advantage of the next-generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface, Transcend SSD570 in 128GB capacity boosts its exceptional transfer speeds of up to 510 MB/s read and 450 MB/s write. Best suited for industrial and embedded applications, Transcend SSD570 is equipped with value-added technologies such as IPS function, Device Sleep mode and S.M.A.R.T. attribute to provide lower power consumption and enhance data protection mechanism.

Compliant with the third generation of the SATA specification utilizing the full potential of the 6Gb/s bus, Transcend SSD570 solid state drives deliver high speed sustained sequential read/write performance of up to 510 MB/s and 450 MB/s respectively. Built on advanced Transcend TS6500 controller and high-quality SLC NAND flash, which has higher stability in data retention and longer endurance than MLC, Transcend SSD570 guarantees faster transfer speed, longer read/write endurance and lower error rates. With shock and vibration resistance design, Transcend SSD570 is the perfect storage solution suitable for industrial applications that require intensive programming yet with excellent data integrity.
Built-in IPS Function
Transcend SSD570 is built in with IPS (Intelligent Power Shield) function which is stronger than other Transcend SSD series. Compared to normal SSDs without power shield function supported, Transcend SSD570 with exclusively built-in IPS function assures more data volume being written into flash chips in the event of sudden power loss. IPS function prolongs the time before the SSD enters write protection mode at the onset of power cut-off to ensure data integrity and to prevent the SSD from damage during sudden power failure or blackouts.

To strengthen product performance, Transcend SSD570 also supports various value-added technologies such as device sleep mode, S.M.A.R.T. capability, security command, built-in ECC and global wear-leveling algorithm, of all which give optimal reliability and stability for the product.

Warranty
Transcend SSD570 is available in 64GB and 128GB, and backed by Transcend's Three-year Limited Warranty. Transcend SSD520 solid state drives with SLC flash chips and SATA II 3Gb/s interface available in 8GB, 16GB and 128GB are another option for industrial grade applications.

The next generation standard from 2009... Why the hell no one offers SATA Express if M.2 is not an option?

From the introducton, I did not find any lightspots. Many existing SSDs have those features. The reliability and shock, vibration testing are also passed. I am not sure why customer will buy this one. Do you have any much more strict testing or criteria done?

Because not many ssd have SLC nand.. don't know how much faster and more reliable is but they say it is more than MLC

There's SLC, but everything else looks passable at best in 2015.

I just think more motherboards should have m2 pci-e slots so I can just throw an SSD on the board thats faster. Saves case space, improves performance etc. I would pay extra for that.

Many boards have M.2 already. If you don't have it, there are also PCIe addin cards that have M.2 slot. Maybe not ideal, but an option.

They are M2 sata for the most part, I want PCI-e.

1 word: **p U h L e E e Z e** .................

I know this is targeted to the industrial crowd but seriously......those speeds are slower than most currently available budget-line consumer SSD's...... next generation my a**..... sata III is essentially EOL already, either get with the PCIe M.2 spec or go play with yourself in the bathtub.........

It's all about the SLC nand guys... That stuff like never, ever dies.Also, No "industrial" board is going to feature an m.2 slot anyhow. SATA 3 is brand spanking new there...

Thanks so much. I only want to strive to get the highlights of the product aside from SLC. Now, for the sake of cost, MLC, TLC, even QLC, 3D NAND are being used to SSD deisgn. So it looks it will only be used in industry field.

PCIe doesn't help you much. Currently random access is about the same as SATA/AHCI.

Throughput is as fast as two drives in raid however. There are situations when that is helpful
