SATA III M.2 SSDs

MTS952A

Transcend's MTS952A M.2 SSD features the SATA III interface and state-of-the-art 3D NAND technology, which allows 96 layers of 3D NAND flash chips to be vertically stacked. Compared to 3D NAND at 64 layers, this density breakthrough greatly improves storage efficiency, and its built-in DRAM cache allows faster access. The MTS952A is compliant with the TCG Opal 2.0 standards. Data is secured by encryption and hierarchical permission. It is fully tested in-house to guarantee reliability in mission-critical applications, boasting an endurance rating of 3K Program/Erase cycles and an extended operating temperature ranging from -20℃~75℃.
