Unparalleled reliability at 3,500 MB/s

The MTE220S SSD comes equipped with a DDR3 DRAM cache memory. This means that commonly used programs load much faster, and boot time is greatly reduced. It also utilizes SLC caching, which allows blazing fast read/write speeds of 3,500 MB/s and 2,800 MB/s, respectively. The 4K Random performance is also significantly improved because of this. In addition to speeds, Low-Density Parity Check Error Correction were also used to significantly improve the reliability of the SSD.

NVMe interface allows unmatched transfer speeds

By utilizing the PCIe Gen3 x4 interface that is compatible with the latest NVMe 1.3 bus specifications, the MTE220S can reach transfer speeds of up to a whopping 32 GB/s. The 3D NAND flash chips used in the SSD mean a bottleneck breakthrough that results in vastly improved read and write speeds over 2D planar NAND. Low power consumption and excellent reliability are also hallmarks of this construction, ensuring long-term dependability. This, then, is an excellent choice for gamers and those who require fast read/write cycles and unquestionable reliability.

SSD Scope Software

The proprietary SSD Scope software, a free download from the Transcend website, is a tailor-made kit that measures the SSD’s health. Tools include View Drive Information, View S.M.A.R.T. Status, Diagnostic Scan, Secure Erase, Firmware Update, TRIM Enable, Health Indicator, and System Clone.
