Adata is gradually extending its range of 2.5 "SATA solid state drives to 3D memory. After the SU800 and SU900 series, the SU700 series, which uses NAND 3D TLC, uses a controller Maxiotek.
The Adata SSD range continues to grow and the SU700 Series is positioned logically behind the Ultimate SU900 and Ultimate SU800 . As a reminder, the SU900 series represents the brand's high-end 2.5 "SATA SSD offering with IMFT's NAND 3D MLC and a Silicon Motion SM2258G controller. SU800, but this time with NAND 3D TLC, always from the Intel / Micron factories.
For its entry level, Adata takes back the NAND 3D TLC of the SU800, but opts for a controller cheaper a priori Of Maxiotek, a first.Sequential flows are globally very slightly lower than those of the series SU800.
Obviously, to achieve such bit rates on TLC memory, Adata uses a SLC cache system, here called WriteBooster. This one is dynamic, that is to say it is valid for queues of files of a size equivalent to one third of the free space of the SSD. Let's hope, however, that the out-of-cache rate is better than the SU800 and SU900 series, where only 30MB / s were moved outside this comfort zone! Extremely low flow, much lower than usual (between 80 and 200 MB / s depending on the model).
The series ranges from 120GB to 960GB and is guaranteed for 3 years. Write endurance is announced at 560TB for the 960GB, 280TB for the 480GB, 140TB for the 240GB and 70TB for the 120GB.
