SanDisk announced their brand new Z410 SSD line-up, for the purpose of replacing commercial-oriented Z400 series.
The Z410 line-up adopts the brand new TLC NAND solution with a 15nm fabrication process. The memory capacities cover 120GB, 240GB and 480GB configurations, and they will mainly release the 2.5″ disk.
SanDisk didn’t give the details about the R/W performance (Z400 is about 540MB/s in reading and 200MB/s in writes), but they disclosed Z410 will have the SLC regions. The average BTBF will be 1.75 million hours and they provide 3 years warranty.
The 15nm flash will have a smaller surface area, this will help reduce the power consumption, which is beneficial to the laptop.
