Taipei, Taiwan (18th October 2013) – SP/Silicon Power, the world’s leading provider of memory storage solutions today launched the new Slim series 7mm2.5” SSD for the new generation of ultra slim notebook. Built in a slim and stylish enclosure, the new SSD unleashes the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA III interface to further expand computing experiences and mobility.

Unlike the standard 9.5mm SSD, SP Slim series features a new slim 7mm form factor for easy integration into the latest mobile computing platforms. Presented in a chic aluminum metal body, the Slim series SSD perfectly complements Ultrabook in design, and its impressive transfer rates make it the ideal SSD upgrade solution. Powered by the latest SandForce technology, SP Slim series can significantly reduce boot time, quickly load applications and provide higher reliability and durability over traditional hard drive.

Today, SP is announcing two new models of the Slim series SSD: Slim S60 and Slim S70. The S60 is designed for users looking for a high performance solution at an affordable pricing. Its remarkable read and write speeds are twice the speed under the SATA II interface and over four times faster than that of the traditional hard drive.

The S70 utilizes the latest SandForce SF-2281 controller with synchronous NAND flash and the new optimized firmware to deliver superior high data transfer rates at 557MB/s in read speed and 507MB/s in write speed. Slim S70 is also more durable and reliable as it can endure more write cycles for longer life span.

Weighing only 63 gram, SP Slim series SSD is one of the lightest of its kind yet it is shock and vibration proof as it contains no moving parts. The Slim series is now available in 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB and is backed by a three year warranty.
