Team Group may have been first to offer an SDD to the terminal RGB addict but they are by no means the last.  Kingston are the next to display a flare of colour as they've added RGB to the HyperX Fury line of SSDs.  The Marvell 88SS1074 controller and Toshiba 3D TLC keep offer the performance that you would expect and keep the price trending towards $0.20/GB but there is still a premium to be paid to make yourself glow.  Pop by Benchmark Reviews for a closer look.

"HyperX Fury RGB lights up that dark space in your case with customizable lighting effects, and is fully compatible with all modern RGB controllers. Utilizing the economical Marvell 88SS1074 storage controller with Toshiba 3D TLC NAND flash components, the Kingston HyperX Fury RGB SSD advertises 550 MB/s peak read speeds and 480 MB/s writes."

Crucial's new MX300 SSD; new NAND means new sizes

The MX300 series utilizes Micron 384G-bit, 32 tier floating gate, 3D TLC NAND which means that the capacities are a little different than we are used to.  1050GB is an odd number, the 978GB available after formatting even more so, but in the end the actual number matters less than the performance.  The SSD Review tested this drive which uses a four channel Micron 88SS1074 controller and sports eight NAND packages with Micron LPDDR3 1333MHz DRAM for a cache.  They tested a single drive as well as setting up two in RAID 0, the single drive could hit 535MB/s read and 516MB/s write and RAID 0 did indeed come close to doubling that.  Drop by to see their full results.

"Due to the new 384G-bit TLC 3D NAND, the MX300 line up is now offered in 275GB, 525GB, 750GB, 1050GB, and 2TB options. From this announcement, the 2TB option intrigued us the most, however, they are still unavailable, so we opted to get two 1050GB models for today's review."

Al first introduced us to Low Density Parity Check, the successor to BCH code error correction when he visited Marvell at FMS 2014 and was shown the 88SS1093 controller.  Lite-On has used a slightly different chip, the 88SS1074 to provide LDPC to their new CV2 family of solid state drives.  In addition to the new error detection capabilities the new controller offers 256-bit AES encryption and device sleep modes to enhance the battery life of mobile devices.  The controller has 4 channels and is paired with 128, 256 or 512GB of triple level cell Toshiba A19 NAND which we have seen on Corsair, OCZ and Silicon Motion products.  The press release references results of 4KB throughput at 100,000 IOPS which we hope to be able to verify in the future.
