ADATA S396 Solid State Drive for Smart Caching

ADATA has announced their upcoming entry-level solid state drive dubbed ADATA S396. The ADATA S396 SSD will only be available in a single capacity providing users with 30GB of storage capacity.

The ADATA S396 SSD is intended specifically for SSD caching purposes in concurrence with Intel’s Smart Response enabled motherboards. This SSD capacity may seem too small for most purposes but, it is adequate enough to do its role as an SSD cache drive.

The ADATA S396 SSD drive supports only SATA 3Gbps speeds. This SSD offers 4KB transfer speeds as 90% of all the computing jobs run by the OS comprise of packets within this size. The read and write speeds of ADATA S396 SSD are rated at 280MB/s and 250MB/s, respectively.
