“Building off the success of our award-winning SanDisk Extreme® II, the new SanDisk Extreme PRO® leverages the latest developments in our innovative nCache™ Pro Technology to enable 24x7, real-world drive performance and responsiveness,” said Kevin Conley, senior vice president and general manager, Client Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “With its ability to deliver consistently fast computing backed by the industry’s first 10-year limited warranty**, the Extreme PRO SSD delivers the performance, trusted reliability and value that enthusiasts and professionals expect from SanDisk.”

SanDisk’s nCache™ Pro technology utilizes a two-tiered caching architecture to optimize speed and endurance for heavy workloads, efficient multi-tasking, and incredibly fast responsiveness from desktops, laptops, and gaming consoles.
