Hynix will launch its own series of SSDs for consumer and business use soon, as Japanese website Hermitage Akihabara reveals. The memory manufacturer has also kept Ultrabooks in mind, as several of its new SSDs are only 7 mm thick.
The SSDs are positioned in Hynix' SH910 series and will initially be available in two capacities: the 128 GB HFS128G32MNM and the HFS256G32MNM with 256 GB. Both versions combine the familiar SandForce SF-2281 controller with Hynix' own 26 nm MLC flash chips. The SATA 6 Gbit/s interface should allow the drives to reach sequential reading and writing speeds of 520 and 500 Mbyte/s, respectively. For 4 kB random writes, Hynix has specified 60.000 IOPS for reading and 35.000 IOPS for writing operations.
The SH910 SSDs provide support for TRIM, SMART and hardware 128-bit AES-encryption. No details have been revealed regarding price and availability.
