SanDisk Displays A110, X110 and U110 SATA M.2 NGFF SSDs – Storage Visions 2014 Update

If anybody had any doubt  with respect to this being the year of the M.2 SSD, it was put to rest at Storage Visions 2014 this morning.  Several manufacturers’ M.2 SSDs were on display for the first time (wait for it) and SanDisk led the way with three variations, two of which are definitely tried and true configurations, only in a new M.2 skin.


First up we have the SanDisk A110 which is a PCIe SSD capable of up to 750MB/s and using the Marvell 88SS9183 PCIe 2.0 X2 controller.  Having spoken to SanDisk with respect to their plans for this PCIe M.2 SSD, their doesn’t seem to be plans for it to become a retail item anytime soon.

On the SATA M.2 SSD side of things, SanDisk also had their X110 SATA M.2 SSD on display in both the 2260 and 2280 sizes.

This SSD is simply a M.2 iteration of the X110 family and specs are 515MB/s read and 465MB/s write for the 256GB capacity.

Last but not least, something we definitely didn’t expect to see in a M.2 form factor was SanDisk’s U110 SSD in both 2242 and 2260 form factors.

The U110 is intended for mobile devices and is capable of performance up to 470MB/s read and 380MB/s write data transfer speeds.

Perhaps the most unique characteristic of the U110, however, is the fact that the controller is SanDisk proprietary.
