Gigabyte enters the SSD market with UD PRO
New offering has built-in DDR3 RAM and includes both 256GB and 512GB
Gigabyte Technology Co Ltd, a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has entered the solid state drive (SSD) with its UD PRO series SATA interface SSDs.
With built-in DDR3 RAM that adheres to Gigabyte standards for high quality, the ultra-durable products provide users with a superior product experience.
According to the vendor, the newly launched UD PRO series SSDs include both 256GB and 512GB capacity options and come with a clean, sleek design featuring a black and gray exterior with the product name engraved in white.
In comparison to standard SSDs without built-in buffer cache, Gigabyte UD PRO series SSDs are twice as effective even when its flash memory is at full capacity. At the same time, the random write (IOPS) is up to 16 times faster than non-buffer cache versions.
"SATA interface SSDs are mainstream and have a considerable development history. The challenge is to develop a product of exceptional quality that stands out from the rest," said Jackson Hsu, deputy director, Gigabyte Channel Solutions Product Development Division. "Gigabyte UD PRO series SDDs are a testament to our strict adherence to producing high quality products. With DDR3L RAM, 3D NAND Flash memory, 256GB or 512GB storage capacity selections, UD PRO series SDDs offer users a high performance, high stability, and high capacity product choice, without sacrificing flash memory or performance."
The company said integrated DDR3L RAM allows users to make use of the entire flash memory capacity without sacrificing perfomance quality or storage capacity.
Gigabyte has thoroughly tested the UD PRO series SSDs by implementing them on a full range of motherboards with their respective chipsets to evaluate both the functionality as well as durability. Through stress tests under high temperatures and other extreme conditions, the UD PRO series SSDs not only passed the tests but performed flawlessly.
