New SandForce SF 2000 Chip Offers Improved Performance

SandForce will be showing off its new SF-2000 range of SSD processors at the Storage Networking World Exhibition next week. The chip is meant for enterprise and other heavy-duty tasks, sporting a 6Gbps SATA interface and the industry’s first sustained, sequential read and write performance of 500MB/sec, with most drives only reaching half of this figure. The controller has a 60,000 sustained random read/write IOPS rating. It supports SAS interfaces, along with single-level, multi-level, and enterprise multi-level cell SSDs. It supports 128-bit and 256-bit AES encryption and can control current and future 30nm and 20nm flash drives with the right interfaces.
