New SandForce SF-2000 SSD Processors (over 500MB/s on SATA 6G)

While the announcement was indeed a few days ago, these new chips are optimized for more important enterprise and industrial computing uses. They feature a 6 Gbps SATA host interface, with the known DuraClass Technology, 60,000 sustained random read/write IOPS (Input-output Operations Per Second) and sequential read/write of 500MB/s.

“The market for SSDs is poised to experience rapid growth over the next few years,” said Jeff Janukowicz, research manager for Solid State Drives at IDC. “Solutions, such as the SandForce SF-2000 Family of SSD Processors, that enable increased performance and higher reliability in a flexible design will enable SSD vendors to meet the demands of this fast paced market.”

SF-2000 SSD Processors feature:

  • Support for advanced 30nm- and 20nm-class Flash with Asynch/ONFi2/Toggle interfaces with data rates up to 166 Mega Transfers per second
  • Enhanced dual-ported SAS bridge support, including non-512-byte sector sizes, e.g., 520, 524, 528, 4K, etc., with Data Integrity Field (DIF) for true Enterprise-class SAS drive behavior and performance
  • TCG Enterprise security with selectable multi-banded 256/128-bit AES encryption with line-rate double encryption for data written to the drive
  • Advanced ECC engine correcting up to 55 bits per 512-byte sector to assure high data integrity and support for future generations of Flash memory
  • Power and performance throttling options to support green computing initiatives
  • Industrial temperature support (-40 to +85 degrees Celsius)
