EDGE Boost Pro Solid State Drives (SSDs) are designed to be a direct replacement for traditional spinning disk hard drives. The result is a faster, lighter, more durable, and more reliable solution than hard drives. Boost Pro SSDs are both PC and Mac compatible and will work in almost any computer or server with a SATA interface. EDGE offers various notebook, desktop, and server upgrade kits designed to make the transition to SSDs a smooth and easy operation.
Utilizing a premium SandForce controller, the Boost Pro SSD can achieve ultra fast read and write speeds of up to 550MB/s and 515MB/s respectively. In comparison to hard drives, SSDs can cut system boot times by up to 5x. Fast read/write speeds, coupled with an impressive IOPS rating, provide fantastic performance gains in common tasks such as file transfers and loading software applications.
A traditional hard drive can be compared to a car - with so many moving mechanical components constantly in use, parts inevitably wear out over time. With no moving parts inside, Boost SSDs are more reliable and less susceptible to mechanical failures than hard drives. This also results in longer notebook battery life, lower heat emission, and completely silent operation.
Security is a critical feature of the Boost Pro mSATA SSD, featuring AES hardware encryption that secures 100% of data when enabled. The feature rich-SandForce controller comes standard with robust tools such as S.M.A.R.T., Garbage Collection, wear leveling, and ECC to promote stability and reliability. SandForce-exclusive functions - Durawrite and RAISE - further enhance data efficiency and increase the lifespan of the SSD.
Breakthrough speed performance
Transfer rates of up to 550 MB/s read and 515 MB/s write, with 85,000 max IOPS. Typically over 50% faster boot times over hard drives.
Full Disk Encryption (FDE) - 256-bit AES hardware encryption secures 100% of data when enabled.
Extreme durabilityProduct Highlights
No moving parts - much more durable and reliable than traditional hard drives that use a spinning disk.
- Less power consumption: longer battery life, more energy efficient, and runs cooler than a traditional hard drive
- Ultra secure: Full Disk Encryption (FDE) secures 100% of data when enabled
- Robust: SandForce Driven, includes a full complement of performance and stability enhancing features (TRIM, ECC, Garbage Collection, S.M.A.R.T., Durawrite, RAISE, and more)
- Raw flash capacity: 512 GB (some capacity used for over-provisioning and not available for use)
