BIOSTAR Introduces New G330 Series SSD
Bohs Hansen / 7 years ago
BIOSTAR entered the SSD market with their G300 drive last fall and now the company is back with a successor and improved version called the G330. The new drive promises a 10% faster performance while maintaining the same design.
BIOSTAR’s new G330 drive is built with Micron 3D TLC NAND and features a DRAM cache to boost the performance. There will be three different capacity options, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, and it is designed to be a great mechanical drive replacement.
The enclosure has a nice and simple design, and it is also quite stable with its patented non-screw housing design. The design will also prevent damages from electrostatic discharge (ESD) while it’s also rated for operation in hot environments. The durable design gives the drive the ability to work in environments with temperatures up to 70°C.
The classic 2.5-inch form factor makes it highly compatible with systems and the drive height of 7mm (6.8mm) will make it fit well with notebooks too.
With read speeds up to 565MB/s and write speeds up to 515MB/s, the BIOSTAR G330 Series SSD improves overall system performance by loading files faster and making the system boot faster than traditional hard drives. Thanks to the new-generation SMI SM2258 controller and Micron 3D TLC, the BIOSTAR G330 Series SSD is capable of this performance at compelling prices.
The BIOSTAR G330 series SSD comes with a Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price of $59 for the 128GB model (G330-128GB), $99 for the 256GB model (G330-256GB), and $169 for the 512GB model (G330-512GB).
