SandForce SF-1200 SSD Processor
Featured Reviews: Storage

The SandForce SF-1200 SATA-3GBps controller is new to the industry, yet many manufacturers are already hailing it as the replacement for Indilinx's industry-leading Barefoot SSD processor. SandForce adds DuraClass technology to their SF-1200 processor, a new technology which claims to provide best-in-class endurance, performance, and lower power consumption. DuraWrite technology extends the endurance of MLC-NAND memory by providing at least five-year lifecycles measured with 3000-5000 cycle MLC flash. Additionally, SandForce RAISE technology provides RAID-like protection for single SSD computer systems, and data is secured with AES-128 automatic encryption. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the SandForce SF-1200 Solid State Drive processor used in the ADATA S599 SSD.
