EDGE Boost Solid State Drives (SSDs) are designed to be a direct replacement for traditional spinning disk hard drives. The result is a faster, lighter, more durable, and more reliable solution primed to replace outdated hard drives forever. Boost SSDs are both PC and Mac compatible and will work in almost any computer or server with a SATA interface. EDGE offers various notebook, desktop, and server upgrade kits designed to make the transition to SSDs a smooth and easy operation.
The Boost SSD can achieve ultra fast read and write speeds of up to 255MB/s and 265MB/s respectively. In comparison to hard drives, SSDs can cut system boot times by 50%. Fantastic performance gains are realized in common tasks such as file transfers and loading software applications.
A traditional hard drive can be compared to a car-with so many moving mechanical components constantly in use, parts inevitably wear out over time. With no moving parts inside, Boost SSDs are more reliable and less susceptible to mechanical failures than hard drives. This also results in longer notebook battery life, lower heat emission, and completely silent operation.
Security is a critical feature of Boost SSDs, featuring 128-bit AES hardware encryption that secures 100% of data when enabled. The feature-rich SandForce controller comes standard with robust tools such as TRIM, S.M.A.R.T., Garbage Collection, wear leveling, and ECC to promote stability and reliability. SandForce exclusive functions- Durawrite and RAISE-further enhance data efficiency and increase the lifespan of the SSD.
The Boost SSD is quite possibly the best upgrade you will ever make to your system-make the switch from archaic hard drives today.
Note: Based on EDGE testing results. Performance may vary depending on OS, configuration, etc. Note: Consult your computer's manual to ensure drive encryption is a supported function of the BIOS.
Breakthrough Speed Performance Transfer rates of up to 255MB/s Read and 265MB/s Write. Typically over 50% faster boot times over hard drives.
