ADATA Technology today launched the Premier SP580 SATA 6 Gb/s solid state drive, built for users who want to upgrade their computers with affordable SSDs. The Premier SP580 is powered by a Marvell controller and supports SLC caching technology, meaning it can operate in SLC (single-level cell) mode for a performance boost. The drive supports LDPC ECC (low density parity check error correcting code), a high TBW (total bytes written) rating, and DEVSLP (device sleep) functionality.
Utilizing a Marvell controller, the Premier SP580 offers read/write speeds up to 560 MB/s 410 MB/s per second. The Premier SP580 is available in 120 GB and 240 GB capacities and arrives bundled with a 2.5 mm spacer, making it suitable for diverse installs - from desktop PCs to notebooks and ultrabooks.
As with all ADATA SSDs, every Premier SP580 purchase qualifies for free downloads of the ADATA SSD Toolbox software suite as well as data and operating system migration utilities.
This range of software makes drive backup and management easy. SSD Toolbox allows users to monitor and manage the Premier SP580, with drive status, wear level, and lifespan information. Data migration utilities are helpful for users making the move from HDD to SSD, as they are designed for simple and quick backup and migration of the contents of entire drive, including the operating system.
