XPG SX300 and Premier Pro SP300 in the shops

ADATA Technology has released its XPG SX300 and Premier Pro SP300 SSDs.

The company said that both are geared towards consumers who wish to get the most out of recently released motherboards that have built-in mSATA sockets. By using an mSATA SSD as a cache drive instead of main storage, systems can reach speed boosts comparable to systems with SSDs as primary drive.

The XPG SX300 has a SATA 6Gbit/sec interface, and is targeted towards power users who demand the utmost in speed and capacity. Read and write speeds reach an impressive 550 and 505 MB/sec respectively, with maximum 4K random write of 85,000 IOPs.  With capacities of 64, 128, and 256GB in such a small form factor, the SX300 brings the full power of solid state technology to the mSATA field.

The Premier Pro SP300 has a SATA 3Gbit/sec interface, and is an economical upgrade option. Read and write speeds reach 280 and 260 MB/sec respectively, with maximum 4K random write of 46,000 IOPs. Capacities of 24, 32, and 64GB allow for use in conjunction with a larger but slower mechanical drive, making the SP300 an extremely cost-effective route for increasing system speed.

The prices are $109.99 for SX300 64GB, $179.99 for SX300 128GB, $349.99 for SX300 256GB, $59.99 for SP300 24GB, $69.99 for SP300 32GB and $103.99 for SP300 64GB.
