The increasing demand for high-performance system storage device is
easily met by the Premier Pro SP300 mSATA 3GB/sec solid state
drive. With a SandForce controller and 25nm (MLC) NAND Flash chips,
the SP300 reaches random read and write speeds of up to
12,500/46,000 IOPS. When combined with the Sandy Bridge or Ivy
Bridge platforms, the SP300 can achieve amazing performance on both
desktop and notebook systems. The implementation of optimized
firmware in the SP300 results in full utilization of the NAND Flash
components, which translates to maximized storage capacity: a 7%
increase over other solid state drives that use a SandForce
controller. This zero percent over-provisioning is implemented with
no loss to performance or supported features, and can be realized
only by 100% screening and sorting of the NAND Flash.
The SP300 utilizes a SandForce controller with 25nm (MLC) NAND
Flash chips. Random read/write speeds reach 12,500/46,000 IOPS. For
energy saving and environmental protection, the low power
consumption of the mSATA SSD greatly reduces electricity costs.
When the SP300 and hard drive are used together in a hybrid
configuration (SSD Caching), costs can be reduced, while still
reaching nearly the speed performance of an SSD as primary drive.
Compared to a sole mechanical drive, performance is improved by up
The SP300 is small and light, measuring only 50.95 x 30 x 4mm. It
is applicable to many motherboards on the market that have an mSATA
slot, including Z77 series motherboards (ASUS Maximus v Gene;
Gigabyte G1 Sniper 3, Z77X, and Z77P, Z77, H77, P75, B75; Asrock
Z77E-ITX), Z68-series motherboards (Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3, Z68XP-D3,
Z68AP-D3, and Z68P-DS3), as well as laptops (Acer TM8481G;
