“Our ultra-slim 1TB2 M.2 X400 SSD enables our OEM customers to build completely new form factors with outstanding reliability and the near-instant boot-up and application loading that consumers expect,” said Tarun Loomba, Vice President and General Manager of Client Storage Solutions at SanDisk.
“The X400 SSD is the flexible, highly reliable platform that our customers need to ensure an exceptional user experience for consumers.”
SanDisk said both consumer and enterprise PC users can expect exceptional reliability even with heavy use.
In addition, the X400 SSD offers data protection through AES 256-bit compliant encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 compatibility, targeting users in the healthcare, financial services and education sectors who need to be compliant with industry regulations.
