Toshiba Announces New Generation of High-Performance Solid State Drives

The Storage Products Business Unit of Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., a committed technology leader, announces the next generation of Toshiba’s award-winning HG series of high performance solid state drives (SSDs) – the HG6 SSD series. This newest addition to the HG family offers high performance, power efficiency, and is suitable for a wide range of applications from Ultrabooks®1 to data center servers.

The HG6 series is available in a variety of standard form factors including 2.5-inch (7mm/9.5mm heights) and thin, space-saving mSATA™2 and M.2, and is available in capacities of up to 512GB3. With 6Gbit/s4 SATA interface speeds, these drives are optimized for fast boot ups and application starts and offer lower power consumption to help improve battery life in mobile devices. The HG6 SSD is optimized for notebook PCs, workstations, thin clients, server boot drives, and read-intensive enterprise applications.

Engineered with enterprise class technology for data integrity, the HG6 series incorporates Toshiba’s proprietary QSBC® (Quadruple Swing-By Code) error-correction technology5, a highly efficient error correction code (ECC), which helps protect customer data from corruption caused by NAND wear, thus improving the reliability of and extending the usable life of the SSD. The series also includes end-to-end data path protection and a self-encrypting feature option that is compliant with Trusted Computing Group (TCG)6 Opal 2.0, the TCG specification for self-encrypting drive function. This is the first mainstream SSD product to use state of the art Toshiba A19nm Toggle 2.0 MLC NAND media.

“With the HG6 series, customers can trust they are using a storage solution with high performance and power efficiency that is ideal for a wide range of applications,” said Don Jeanette, senior director of marketing at Toshiba Storage Products Business Unit. “As inventors of NAND technology, we leverage our NAND expertise to optimize the performance and data integrity of this series, and truly give customers the power of choice with a broad selection of capacities and form factors.”

Product of the HG6 series will begin shipping in March 2014. For more information on Toshiba’s line of industry-leading SSDs, HDDs and SSHDs, visit www.toshibastorage.com.

3 Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

4 Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.

5 QSPC is a registered trademark of Toshiba Corporation in the United States.

6 The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is a not-for-profit organization formed to develop, define and promote open, vendor-neutral, global industry standards, supportive of a hardware-based root of trust, for interoperable trusted computing platforms.

7 Model Number: x=N, Standard model, x=F, SED models. "yyy" indicates the capacity of the drive.

8 Only the 512GB model is lined up for DNU, 50, 128 and 256HB models are lined up for 8NU.

9 Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes.
