Transcend Introduces High-Performance SSDs for Consumer and Embedded Applications Haoson May 21, 2018 Geek Tech, Geeks, Press Release Transcend Information Inc., a leading manufacturer of storage and multimedia products, announced today the release of the MTE110S PCIe NVMe M.2 2280 SSD for the consumer market and the MTE550T PCIe NVMe M.2 2280 SSD for embedded applications. Built with high quality 3D TLC NAND flash memory, both SSDs utilize the PCI Express Gen 3 x4 interface, and are fully compliant with PCIe 3.1 and NVMe 1.3 specifications to achieve transfer speeds of up to 1,800 MB/s (read) and 1,500 MB/s (write)- Low power consumption and excellent reliability are also hallmarks of 3D TLC NAND, delivering not only fast transfer speeds but unmatched reliability for high-end applications. MTE110S – a PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 3D TLC Consumer SSD By leveraging the NVMe 1.3 protocol and PCIe Gen 3 x4 interface, the Transcend MTE110S offers four lanes of simultaneous data flow to deliver approximately two times the sequential read- and three times the random read performance of the MTE820 M.2 SSD series. MTE550T – a PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 3D TLC Embedded SSD Designed for high-end applications, the Transcend MTE550T comes equipped with a DRAM cache, which allows frequently-used applications to load much faster and greatly reduces boot times. The four-lane PCIe 3.1 throughputs, in combination with the NVMe 1.3 protocol, enables the MTE550T to reach blazing-fast read and write speeds of 1,800 MB/s and 800 MB/s, respectively-To achieve consistent performance and data retention, the MTE550T supports enhanced S.M.A.R.T. functionality, advanced global wear-leveling and block management, as well as advanced garbage collection. Transcend is also offering the MTE510T, a cost-effective, DRAM-less SSD solution for embedded and industrial applications at an attractive price. Exclusive Technologies Transcend’s 3D TLC NAND SSDs feature cutting-edge technologies for performance and protection, including built-in SLC caching for enhanced write performance and product lifespan, LDPC ECC algorithm to ensure data integrity, and dynamic thermal throttling mechanism to prevent overheating while maintaining high performance. User-Friendly SSD Utility Suite Transcend‘s SSD Scope and SSD Scope Pro software are designed to monitor your SSD’s health and help the SSD run more efficiently. Other functionalities include View Drive Information, View S.M.A.R.T. Status, Diagnostic Scan, Secure Erase, Health Indicator, System Clone and Firmware Update. Warranty The MTE110S PCIe NVMe M.2 2280 SSD comes in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities, all of which are covered by Transcend’s five-year limited warranty. The MTE550T, on the other hand, comes in 128GB and 256GB capacities with a three-year limited warranty.
