Memoright Intros Proprietary Controller PCIe & UltraSlim 5mm SSDs – Computex 2012 Update

Memoright consistently reigns as the most complete display for SSD technology at Computex and, if their products this year are any indication of things to come, MemoRight will be pushing the bar that much further once again.

From a PCIe with their own controller, to the worlds thinnest 2.5″ form factor ssd, and then quadrupling the life of present NAND flash memory SSDs thus reducing the total cost of ownership by up to 75%, MemoRight definitely brought the goods.

PCIE 2.0 X 4 SSD

The first thing to catch our eye was MemoRights prototype PCIe SSD 2.0 x 4 which is a half height card and will be available in 600GB SLC or 600 to 1.2TB MLC configurations.  The controller of this PCIe SSD is MemoRight’s own and capable of 1.3GB/s read and 1.2GB/s write transfer speeds with up to 300,000 IOPS at 4k random read disk disk access.


Next up was the slimmest SSD we have seen to date which definitely has an eye on the ultrabook market.  The FTM Series UltraSlim SATA 3 SSD is only 5mm thick and maintains the typical 2.5″ notebook form factor.  The Ultra boasts performance of 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write through LSI SandForces  SF-2281 processor and is the thinnest of three in the FTM family.



Focusing on enterprise write endurance, the Memoright Quad Life Series SSD family will be available in 265 and 530GB capacities for the 2.5″ form factor as well as a 220GB capacity for the 1.8″ size.  Using MemoRight’s own Endurance Write Technology, they are able to quadruple the present MLC NAND endurance from 3,000 -5,000 up to 20,000 total write cycles, thus increasing the total life span of drives and reducing the total cost of ownership by up to 75%.



Last but not least, we couldn’t close this article without speaking of mSATA once again as MemoRight had their MS500 (SATA 2) and MS701 (SATA 3) series mSATA SSDs on display.  Our recent review of the MS701 showed it to be one of the top mSATA SSDs to date, bringing with it full LSI SandForce SF-2281 performance, and packaging that just had to see it available in the retail market.  Speaking with my close friend of many years, Charles Chou of MemoRight’s Marketing Division, we just might be seeing the mSATA family available in the near future at very competitive pricing.
