Super Talent TeraDrive CT3 SATA III SSD now available

Earlier this year showed a number of new Super Talent SSDs TeraDrive based on SandForce SF-2000 series controllers, such as CT3 consumer and FT3 for the business segment. After the demonstration at CES in January, remained silent for a while, but now the TeraDrive CT3 than actually available. The CT3 is based on asynchronous MLC flash memory of the 25nm generation. Compared to the synchronous flash memory is asynchronous memory slower, but there are also lower production costs compared.

The SSD supports data speeds of up to 550MB/sec read and up to 520MB/s writes. The device uses MLC NAND flash inside and will come in multiple capacities. The CT3 will be available in 64GB, 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities. The NAND flash inside the SSD made with a 25nm process. The new SSD also supports some of the important Windows 7 features.

Thanks SandForce SF-2281 controller chip in this TeraDrive CT3 SSD, the performance still be fine with transfer speeds up to 550 MB / s read and up to 520 MB / s for writing data. This also means that only one SSD SATA 6 Gbps port on the motherboard or RAID controller can reach its maximum speed. The random read / write data is not released by Super Talent, but that will probably differ little from other SSDs based on the same SF-2281 controller with flash memory asynchronously. The new course provides support for TeraDrive CT3 TRIM and garbage collection.

Super Talent’s new TeraDrive series includes 64GB (525/490 MB/s read/write speed), 120GB (545/510 MB/s), 240GB (550/520 MB/s) and 480GB (500/450 MB/s) drives.

As with the PT3, the CT3 features the new SandForce SF-2200 SSD processor and the SATA III interface. You can think of the new TeraDrive CT3 as the PT3 with asynchronous Flash or as the CT2 with a SATA III interface; either way the CT3 is a perfect combination for price and performance,” SuperTalent explains.
