The new HG6 series SSDs are Toshiba’s first to use NAND chips fabricated with 19nm second-generation process technology. Versions will be available in capacities from 60GB to 512GB[1], in 2.5-type, thin space-saving mSATA™[2] and M.2 (single- and double-sided) form factors, to meet various requirements.

The new SSDs include a self-encrypting option that is compliant with the Trusted Computing Group’s[3] TCG Opal Ver. 2.0. They also incorporate Toshiba’s original wipe function, which automatically erases data when an SSD is accessed by an unregistered system.

All models in the series integrate a 6Gbit/s SATA interface and have a maximum sequential read speed of 534MB/s (512GB model). They offer fast booting and application starts, and their low power consumption help to improve battery life in mobile devices. The HG6 series is suitable for notebook PCs, workstations, thin clients, server boot drives and read-intensive enterprise applications.
