Swift SSD

Strontium has launched new 2.5-inch Swift solid-state drive (SSD) equipped to deliver all the advantages of flash disk technology with the serial ATA II interface.

Strontium SSDs are designed as industry-standard drop-in replacements for traditional hard drives. They are flash-based drives that offer greater reliability and faster performance than traditional magnetic hard drives. They use less power, have reduced heat dissipation and are lightweight and more rugged. They also offer fast read/write speeds and high capacities, making them an ideal storage solution for read-intensive applications requiring high performance and greater reliability.

Available in capacities from 32- to 256Gbyte, the drives feature industry-standard 1.5-/ 3Gbit/s SATAI/ II interface and 2.5-inch form factor to allow easy and straightforward user installation in most notebook and desktop computers, just like a conventional hard drive. Moreover they can reach 236MBps read as well as 160MBps write high performance.

"We are confident that our customers will appreciate the delivery of extraordinary transfer speeds of up to 236MBps read and 160MBps write to guarantee ultraspeed throughput, regardless of file size or type," said Ajay Kogta, country manager, Indian Subcontinent, Strontium. "The launch of the Strontium Swift series SSD would leverage our extensive know-how in designing and manufacturing highly reliable storage products and the company's worldwide sales and distribution network to accelerate SSD technology adoption by OEMs, system builders, technology and gaming enthusiasts."

Strontium Swift Solid State Drives (SSDs) are currently available in 64- and 128Gbyte capacities with a three-year warranty through Strontium channel partners across India.
