Toshiba launches HG6 series of client SSDs using 19nm second-generation NAND process technology
Toshiba today announced the launch of the HG6 series of client SSDs integrating NAND chips fabricated with 19nm second-generation process technology. The new HG6 series SSDs are Toshiba’s first to use NAND chips fabricated with 19nm second-generation process technology. Versions will be available in capacities from 60GB to 512GB, in 2.5-type, thin space-saving mSATA and M.2 (single- and double-sided) form factors, to meet various requirements. All models in the series integrate a 6Gbit/s SATA interface and have a maximum sequential read speed of 534MB/s (512GB model). They offer fast booting and application starts, and their low power consumption help to improve battery life in mobile devices.
The new SSDs include a self-encrypting option that is compliant with the Trusted Computing Group’s TCG Opal Ver. 2.0. They also incorporate Toshiba’s original wipe function, which automatically erases data when an SSD is accessed by an unregistered system. The HG6 series is suitable for notebook PCs, workstations, thin clients, server boot drives and read-intensive enterprise applications. Shipping will start from March.
