  • Random Read: 18,000 IOPS @ 4K
  • Random Write: 1,200 IOPS @ 4K
  • Average Power: < 1.0W
  • 34nm flash technology.
  • Real-time 256-, 192-, or 128-bit AES (CBC or ECB) hardware-driven encryption/decryption.
  • Secure-erase data declassification methods that meet strict government policies.
  • Supports Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART), Native Command Queuing (NCQ), Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI), and other advanced SATA commands.
  • Conforms to SATA 2.6 and ATA-7 specifications.
  • Features advanced wear-leveling and over-provisioning techniques to improve performance, prolong drive life, and boost reliability.
