Adata XPG SX910 SSD unleashed

With a five year warranty

Adata has announced the launch of its new XPG SX910 solid state drive.

The company reckons that the new SSD delivers a 7 per cent increase in capacity over SSDs which use a SandForce controller, and the high performance drives come in three flavours – a compact 128GB, a more sizeable 256GB model, and a whopping 512GB capacity drive at the top end.

The full usage of that storage capacity is facilitated by new optimised firmware, and Adata claims the drives boast 0 per cent over-provisioning, with no loss to performance, either.

Indeed, the XPG SX910′s figures stack up pretty healthily, with maximum 4k random read/write speeds hitting 50,000 and 85,000 IOPS respectively. The sequential read speed is 550MB/s, and the write speed 530MB/s.

Adata also notes that the SX910 is put through an improved screening process for the Flash chip selection, which allows the company to be confident enough to whack a five year warranty into the deal.

The drive also comes with a 3.5 inch bracket kit, so it can be mounted and used within a desktop PC as well as a laptop.

Adata states: “The SX910 is positioned to meet the rigorous standards of the world’s most serious gamers and professionals.”

The drive is available across Europe and the US now.
