World’s thinnest 1TByte M.2 Solid State Drive

SanDisk has unveiled the SanDisk X400 SSD, the world’s thinnest single-sided 1TByte M.2 solid state drive (SSD) with a height of 1.5mm. The X400 SSD is designed for fast start-up and application launch, as well as for extended battery life.

In testing, SanDisk claims a 256GByte X400 SSD was rated to operate for more than five years with a workload of approximately 40GB/day3. This performance makes the X400 SSD an optimal solution for enterprise or other OEM customers who need a reliable solution for systems that are broadly deployed in the field, such as digital signage, networking gear, point of sale, and commercial PCs.

The X400 SSD is also said to achieve increased reliability and endurance by implementing SanDisk’s nCache 2.0 technology and DataGuard technology as well as additional error correction mechanisms. Based on SanDisk’s 6th generation X3 Technology, the SanDisk X400 SSD is said to use 90% less power than a traditional hard disk drive4.

In addition, the X400 SSD offers data protection through AES 256-bit compliant encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 compatibility, targeting users in the healthcare, financial services and education sectors who need to be compliant with industry regulations.

The SanDisk X400 SSD is currently available in 2.5’’ cased and M.2 2280 form factors at 128, 256, 512GByte and 1TByte capacities.
