Storage technology keeps on changing every day it seems, with faster speeds and smaller sizes launching all the time. Toshiba has something new for us, with its OCZ RD400 NVMe PCIe SSD offering improved bandwidth and speed to desktop and notebook users alike. The RD400 makes use of the PCIe 3.0 x4 slot for some insane speeds, with 2,600MB/s read and 1,600MB/s write speeds, and 210,000 / 140,000 read/write IOPS. Those are about four and a half times faster than SATA SSDs, meaning the RD400 is a fine option for speed demons. The RD400 offers those speeds in either the PCIe adapter or in its M.2 2280 form factor, so you can take advantage of it in desktops or notebooks with or without the M.2 slot. Each RD400 SSD uses 15nm Toshiba MLC NAND flash, offering up to 592TB of data written to it.
The Toshiba OCZ RD400 NVMe PCIe SSD comes in 128, 256, 512GB, and 1TB capacities. Pricing comes in at $110 for the 128GB, $170 for the 256GB, $310 for the 512GB, and $740 for the 1TB, with the PCIe adaper versions adding $20 to each capacity. Each one comes with a five-year warranty. No release date was given other than soon, so keep an eye on your ®etailer of choice.
