LSI SandForce Flash Storage Processors Enable Lower Power +Higher Performance for Ultrabook™
New features extend battery life as much as one hour, reduce resume times and enhance overall user experience
LSI Flash Storage Processors are the intelligence that manages flash memory in solid state drives (SSDs) and delivers the performance and power efficiency benefits needed for the fast-growing Ultrabook market segment. The new LSI SandForce power management optimisations enable SSD manufacturers to develop drives that extend battery life and reduce system resume times, critical requirements in today’s growing class of thin-and-light Ultrabook platforms. Fueling increased adoption of SSDs, the Ultrabook market is forecasted to grow at a compounded rate of 92 percent through 2017 .
“Client computing customers are increasingly turning to the benefits of flash-based products to accelerate application performance and deliver an enhanced user experience,”
With the improved features, LSI SandForce SF-2141, SF-2241 and SF-2281 client FSPs offer strong benefits for Ultrabooks:
• Consume less power, providing as much as one hour longer battery life2
• Enable faster system boot and wake times
• Meet the low Z-height product requirement of Ultrabooks
• Support SATA 6Gb/s host connectivity
• Address 24GBs to 512GBs of NAND flash memory
• Provide support for virtually all MLC flash product families
