AMD has released its second range of Radeon branded SSDs, the Radeon R3 SSD series.
The new Radeon R3 SSD series are aimed at the value market and are meant to replace traditional hard drives. The drives are said to be manufactured and guaranteed by Galt Inc. in Taiwan and sport the following features:
- Value across the range of 120, 240, 480 and 960GB sizes, 10x speed boost over traditional HDDs,
- A 2.5-inch form factor, 7mm thick,
- A 3 year warranty
The SATA III 6Gbps drives use TLC NAND and the Silicon Motion SM2256KX controller. The 240GB and 480GB models are the top performers and these deliver quite a performance boost in write speeds compared to the 120GB capacity SSD model. In write speeds these drives are all pretty equal.
The drives are now available in the US and Canada priced as follows; $40.99 for the 120GB model, $69.99 for the 240GB model and $136.99 for the 480GB model.
