RunCore is back in the limelight with an upgrade to their existing enterprise-grade SSDs - the Kylin II series. Where the Kylin II originally came out using the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface, RunCore is now bringing Kylin II to market with the much more popular SATA 6.0 Gbps interface and a second-gen SandForce controller.
The new 2.5-inch sized Kylin II drives have an MTBF of 2 million hours and come in either SLC (single level cell) or MLC (multi level cell) form. RunCore states that they are capable of 4KB random read/write performance of 45,000/60,000 IOPS, whilst they give sequential read and write rates of up to 540MB/sec and 500MB/sec, respectively.
The updated line of Kylin II series drives from RunCore include both MLC and SLC versions of the 50GB, 100GB, 200GB, 300GB, and 400GB models.
