Toshiba Europe GmbH (TEG) Storage Peripherals Division announced its internal 2.5"/7mm SSDs with 15nm flash memory technology.

toshiba,SSD Q300 Pro

As well as enhancing performance and reducing power consumption, the evolution from 19nm to 15nm flash sees the maximum available capacity of the Toshiba SSD Q300 Pro family rise to 1,024GB.
 
Based on 3-bit-per-cell TLC (triple-level-cell) 15nm flash memory, Q300 series is for users looking to upgrade their PCs by replacing conventional internal HDDs with responsive, power-efficient, shock-resistant solid-state alternatives.

The Q300 Pro models, which use 2-bit-per-cell MLC (multi-level-cell) 15nm technology, are designed to address the performance demands of high-end workstation users including graphic designers, gamers and business professionals.
 
The new SSDs feature a backwards-compatible SATA III interface that is rated for maximum data transfer rates of 6.0Gb/s.

Toshiba's adaptive size SLC write cache advanced speed technology optimises processing speed to deliver sequential write speeds up to 530MB/s, while maximum sequential read speeds go up to 550MB/s. Maximum respective random read and write speeds are 92,000 IO/s and 63,000 IO/s for Q300 Pro models and 87,000 IO/s and 83,000 IO/s in the case of Q300 SSDs.
 
Toshiba's Q300 Pro SSDs are available in capacities of 1,024GB, 512GB and 256GB. Capacity options for the Q300 SSDs are 960GB, 480GB, 240GB and 120GB. All of the drives offer support for native command queuing (NCQ), S.M.A.R.T., zeroing TRIM and Patrol Read (this is only available with Q300 Pro). Models in the Q300 Pro series also feature the company's proprietary QSBC (Quadruple Swing-By Code) error correction technology, which helps protect data from corruption and further improves reliability.
 
MTTF ratings for all Q300 Pro and Q300 models are 1,500,000 hours.
 
The new 15nm flash-based drives will be available from April 2016.

Standard warranty is five years for the Q300 Pro and three years for the Q300.
