(Taipei)A 2016 survey from IDC foresaw the rise of thin tablets and Ultrabooks with a huge leap of growth due to demand and technical advances. The trend is enabled by the invention of the M.2 solid state drive, which is a compactly built interface that can handle advanced computations and processing performances with a significant shrinkage in size.p computers.
High Performance and Excellent Speed
The leading memory module and consumer digital product innovator Apacer introduces AST280, an M.2 SSD interface that is available in 120GB and 240GB, as a part of this growing trend. Featuring the latest SATA III interface 6Gb/s to deliver an optimized performance with incredible speeds of up to 520MB/s read and 495MB/s write, AST280 provides random write speed with up to 84,000 IOPs to effectively boost processing responses of multimedia applications. AST280 is compactly built to be coverless and measures only 220mm x 80mm, making it ideal for new generation models that are designed to be thinner. In addition to stability and excellent transmissions, AST280 is certainly the best choice for performance enhancement and capacity expansion for gaming motherboards, Intel NUC, slim laptops and mini PCs.
Stability with Multiple Features
AST280 M.2 SATA III SSD supports various functions, including Error Correction Code (ECC), Wear Leveling, Intelligent Block Management, and S.M.A.R.T. Its stableness and long lifespan are the important qualities that Apacer has repeatedly tested to ensure the delivery of reliability and compatibility, along with its anti-impact and anti-shock features. The introduction of AST280 joins a lineup of M.2 models that Apacer developed, which are all built with a fundamental concept: brining the most trusted performance with superior functionality.
