Product Overview The S511 utilizes the new generation SandForce SF-2200 series controller, with native support for the SATA 6Gb/s platform. The S511 completely brings into play the revolutionary high-speed performance of solid state drives, embracing a new world of transfer performance. With read and write speeds twice that of SSDs using the older SATA II specification, the S511 reached 550/520MB read and write speeds respectively, with 4K random write speeds as high as 60,000 IOPS in real world testing. This means transferring a 5GB video file can be completed in as few as 15 seconds. In actual testing of Windows 7 boot speed, the S511 clocked an impressive 23 second system boot time, giving full satisfaction to the performance needs of power users.
Features High-speed read and write performance enhances computing efficiency
Currently, the major processor platforms are gradually making the changeover to native SATA 6Gb/s chips. However, traditional mechanical drives are not capable of the corresponding high-speed read and write tasks. The result is that some newly-purchased computers can only utilize a fraction of the performance available when equipped with a traditional hard drive. The S511 solid state drive provides vibration-free running and low power consumption while taking full advantage of the 6Gb bandwidth transmission capability. In both desktop and laptop computers, and in a broad range of computing environments, SSDs built to the latest specification an irreplaceable advantage.

Solid state drives are the best choice when buying a new computer
With the increasing popularity of computing with the use of more diverse applications, computational speed has become a major consideration when buying computers. In video editing, large picture retouching, and computer drafting, reading and writing operations rely on fast and stable data storage.
The S511 adopts specially selected Flash chips from reliable manufacturers, and supports the Windows TRIM command. In both desktop and notebook computers, users will enjoy an unprecedented high-speed experience.
What is the Windows TRIM command optimizing component?
If your computer is running the Windows 7 operating system, the Windows TRIM optimization command can directly delete stored data in the Flash memory and release unused space (Free Blocks) to be used for system writes immediately. This results in more accelerated transfer and write performance for solid state drives, and is also effective in slowing down efficiency decline and depletion chances, maintaining effective operation and extending the life of the disk.
