Leading Chinese storage chip maker YMTC released a new high-speed SSD under its consumer brand Zhitai on Wednesday. The new SSD product, named TiPlus 7100, adopts TSMC’s third generation of Xtacking architecture, which is 50% faster than the older models in inputs and outputs. Different from the TiPro 7000, the new model does not come with extra DRAM chips to accelerate performance. According to the specs of the product on JD, the TiPlus 7100 offers three volume options – 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB. The three can read files at 7,000 MB/s powered by a four-channel design, while the 2 TB model can achieve a file-writing speed of 6,000 MB/s. With prices starting from RMB 439 ($60.7), the 512 GB and 1 TB models were available for preorder from Wednesday. The 2 TB has yet to launch with a price on JD. [YMTC, in Chinese]
