The new SanDisk X400 SSD is the world's thinnest one terabyte (1TB) M.2 solid state drive (SSD). It is the first single-sided 1TB SATA M.2 form factor with a mere 1.5mm height. The X400 SSD is designed for fast start-up and application launch, as well as for extended battery life.
In Sandisk internal testing, a 256GB X400 SSD was rated to operate for more than 5 years with a workload of approximately 40GB/day. This performance makes the X400 SSD a great solution for enterprise or other OEMs who need a reliable solution for systems that are broadly deployed in the field, such as digital signage, networking gear, point of sale (POS), and commercial PCs.
The X400 SSD also achieves increased reliability and endurance by implementing SanDisk's nCache 2.0 technology and DataGuard technology as well as additional error correction mechanisms. Based on SanDisk's 6th generation X3 Technology, the SanDisk X400 SSD uses 90% less power than a traditional hard disk drive.
In addition, the X400 SSD offers data protection through AES 256-bit compliant encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 compatibility, targeting users in the healthcare, financial services and education sectors who need to be compliant with industry regulations.
The SanDisk X400 SSD is currently available in 2.5" cased and M.2 2280 form factors at 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities.
