Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., a committed technology leader, announces the SG5 Series of client solid state drive (cSSD). The SG5 Series will embed 15nm TLC NAND flash memory, achieving high storage capacities while maintaining a small form factor and decreasing costs for consumers. The SG5 Series is Toshiba’s first client SATA SSD to support 1,024GB capacity in an M.2 form factor. This family of drives is designed for commercial notebook and desktop PCs, consumer upgrades and higher end notebook applications. With this lower cost, high performance drive, Toshiba is committed to accelerating the adoption of SSDs in client PCs.
