Apacer has announced the AS2280P4U Pro series solid state drives. Devices made in the popular M.2 2280 format can be used in productive computers and gaming systems.
The products are built on the basis of 3D NAND flash memory microchips. The PCIe 3.0 x4 interface is used. An aluminum radiator is responsible for heat dissipation under high loads, which is said to reduce temperatures by 25% compared to devices without a heat sink.
The family includes four models – with a capacity of 256 and 512 GB, as well as 1 and 2 TB. The declared speed of steady-state information reading reaches 3500 MB / s, the write speed is 3000 MB / s.
The number of I / O operations per second (IOPS value) when randomly writing data in blocks of 4 KB is up to 360,000.
For new products, the MTBF indicator (mean time between failures) is declared at the level of 1.5 million hours. The drives can be operated in the temperature range from 0 to +70 ° C. Dimensions are 22 × 80 × 2.25 mm. Solutions come with a five-year warranty. Unfortunately, there is no information about the estimated price.
