It's been almost 45 years since The Rolling Stones began belting out "I can't get no satisfaction," the lyrics to a song we can only assume had absolutely nothing to do with solid state drives. After all, SSDs
as we know them today didn't even exist in 1965, but maybe this is what the band has been waiting for all along. We're talking about AMP's new SSD line dubbed SATAsfaction.
The new line is aimed at satisfying the enterprise crowd, which it attempts to do with a SATA 3.0 interface. Transfer rates check in at 150MBs sequential writes and 260MB/s sequential reads, and the drives also come with either a 32MB or 64MB buffer. Built-in ECC and EDC comes standard, as does NCQ support, and you can choose between 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities.
AMP is also offering the new line in internal mini SATA SSD form (pictured above). These also boast the same 260MB/s read speeds, but kicks up sequential writes to 250MB/s, putting them on par with higher end consumer level SSDs. In SLC form, these will come in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities, while MLC-based drives will ship in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities.
