Toshiba Introduces NVMe SSD Series

24 May 2016

Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) has launched a solid state drive (SSD) series that features an improved storage bandwidth and enhances latency by utilizing the non-volatile memory express (NVMe) protocol.

By including the NVMe interface, which is the first storage protocol designed with SSDs in mind, the RD400 series can achieve performance speeds faster than traditional serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) interfaces. Furthermore, the SSD series includes the peripheral component interconnect express, which can deliver more than four times the performance of SATA SSDs, Toshiba says.
