ADATA today launched the industrial-grade ADATA IM2P33F8 PCIe Gen3 x4 and IM2S3168 SATA 6 Gbps M.2 2280 solid state drives. Both drives employ durable and long-lasting 3D NAND flash, making them ideal upgrade options for a wide range of systems and installations.
The Adata IM2 series have 3D TLC NAND flash memory, end-to-end data protection, and variable capacities. The IM2P33F8 features a PCIe 3.0 controller with support for NVMe 1.3 and has three capacities (128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB), rated for up to 2,050 MB/s and 1,600 MB/s for sequential read and write speeds, respectively. The IM2S3168 SSD, on the other hand, has a SATA 6 GB/s controller which offers up to 540 MB/s and 510 MB/s in sequential read and write performance, respectively. The capacities of the SATA-based SSD are also more varied, offering 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB drives.
IM2P33F8 PCIe Gen3x4 – An Excellent Alternative to SATA SSDs
With a price tag comparable to SATA SSDs, the IM2P33F8 is an excellent alternative for upgrading a range of systems and installations, from laptops to surveillance systems. Utilizing 3D NAND flash it provides read/write performance of up to 2050/1600MB per second, as well as amazing reliability, durability, and stability. It supports Host Memory Buffer (HMB) technology, enabling it to enhance random read/write performance. For upholding data integrity and safety, the IM2P33F8 supports End-to-End (E2E) Data Protection to keep data consistent along the entire data transfer path, while support for RAID Engine reduces the risk of data loss due to drive failure. IM2P33F8 is available in capacities ranging from 128GB to 512GB, and features a slim single-sided design for high compatibility.
IM2S3168 SATA 6Gbps M.2 2280 – Multiple Data Protection Technologies
IM2S3168 is likewise ideal for a range of systems and installations, and offers up to 1 TB of carefully sorted and tested 2nd generation 3D TLC NAND, meeting strict ADATA A+ quality standards. IM2S3168 provides read/write speeds of up to 540 MB/510 MB per second via the SATA III 6Gbps protocol. Thanks to the compact dimensions of the M.2 2280 form factor, the IM2S3168 requires far less room than 2.5″ SATA drives. But most notable are the multiple data protection technologies supported by this SSD, including SM4 algorithm, AES 256-bit encryption, TCG Opal 2.0, and End-to-End Data Protection. What’s more, with ADATA SSD ToolBox software users have multiple ways to obtain disk information, and change settings easily. Additionally, it can speed up SSD performance and improve its lifespan.
Strenuous Testing Assures Industrial-Grade Strength
The IM2S3168 and IM2P33F8 design process mandated certification to a temperature range of 0 to 70 degrees Celsius. They can operate normally in 0% to 95% humidity and easily handle up to 20G vibration plus up to 1500G/0.5ms shocks. The IM2S3168 and IM2P33F8 are hardened against electro-static and electromagnetic interference and support TRIM command, S.M.A.R.T, and wear leveling for improved data integrity and functionality over long periods of time. These result in an excellent cost-performance ratio that is sure to be attractive to commercial users.
