Kingston is going to start their new HyperX line of solid state drives in India. Kingston’s HyperX line of products have been known to be performance-oriented. The new drives will be based on the SATA3 interface, on Intel’s 25nm NAND and will use a SandForce controller. Kingston claims that the SandForce SF-2281 controller being used on these drives is the fastest and the most reliable one around.
Impressive performance expected from the new drives
The drive will be available in 120 GB and 240 GB capacities. Kingston claims that the drive will be able to reach read speeds of 525 MB/s and write speeds of 480 MB/s. The drives are based on the 2.5-inch drive format. There’s an additional upgrade kit version being sold which will include a mounting plate, an external USB drive bay, a screw driver and a SATA data cable. The drive is said to sell from the 11th of July with a three-year warranty through Kingston vendors. There has been no pricing related announcement yet.
