Reading time is around minutes.

As SSD drives are becoming a standard parts of every PC today, consumers are getting used to high performance and high quality storage devices. Therefore Kingmax is launching a SATA III Client Pro SSD – SMU32 and SMU 35 to please users’ desires. Helped by a SandForce controller and high-speed synchrounous Flash memory it has read/write speeds of up to 550MBs, 520MBs, and 4KB random write speed up to 85,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second). These high performance numbers will be enough for every user, whether it is used for gaming, multimedia or multitasking.

Synchronous memory has many advantages over asynchronous, like longer lifetime, better performances, even a longer period of reliability and data protection. Though many asynchronous memory drives will have higher specifications, the difference really shows in real-world usage, where synchronous will easily wipe the floor with asynch. The SandForce controller together with the latest firmware technology is here to take make sure that these Kingmax modules will provide maximum performance along with all other specifications mentioned above. They support NCQ (Native Command Queuing) and TRIM (performance optimization), DuraWrite (enhances lifetime), and S.M.A.R.T. function to secure the data by 55 bit error correction code.  SMU32 is a basic version, while SMU35 is desktop version they come in versions of 60/120/240/480GB.
