Transcend 832S 256GB M.2 2280 SATAIII SSD
Transcend's M.2 SSD 832S adopts a single-sided M.2 2280 form factor, making it slimmer and highly compatible with space-limited applications and small form factor devices, such as thin, light notebooks and high-performance PCs. Featuring the SATA III 6Gb/s interface, DDR3 DRAM cache, enhanced firmware algorithms, and built with high-quality NAND flash, the ultra-compact M.2 SSD 832S delivers high performance and peerless reliability. Unlike the existing planar NAND chips, 3D NAND flash is a type of flash memory in which the memory cells are stacked vertically in multiple layers. 3D NAND is developed to break through density limitations of the 2D planar NAND, and thus can deliver a greater level of performance and endurance. Compliant with M.2 form factor Type 2280, Transcend's 3D NAND M.2 SSD 832S is just 80mm in length and comes in a single-sided layout - meaning that only one side of the SSD has components attached to it - making the 832S the perfect solution for small form factor laptops and ultra-light PCs. The M.2 SSD 832S makes for an easy upgrade to your computer, taking up little space while giving it a much needed energy boost. Featuring the M.2 standard (80mm), the next generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface and a powerful controller, Transcend's M.2 SSD 832S reaches incredible read and write speeds of up to 560MB/s and 500MB/s. When used as a cache, the M.2 SSD 832S provides 1.5 times faster boot time than conventional hard drives. Dedicated to maximizing high-performance computing, the M.2 SSD 832S features 4k random file read and write speeds up to 85,000 IOPS that deliver incredibly short loading times and almost instant response for heavy graphics and multimedia applications. The M.2 form factor enables expansion and integration of functions onto a single form factor module solution. M.2 SSDs include a smaller form factor but with larger capacities than that of mSATA and half-slim SSDs. With its singled-sided M.2 form factor, the SSD 832S is even slimmer and offers better compatibility.
