Mtron MOBI SDD Features

Remarkable Reduction of Booting Time

The booting speed is determined by the time required for the hard disk to read the data required for OS operation, regardless of CPU or memory performance. Accordingly, it is difficult to expect fundamental improvement in booting speed without addressing the structural problem associated with the hard disk. Mtron SSD MOBI uses the flash memory to resolve the problem. With a maximum read speed of 100MB/s, data is read three times faster than a hard disk, remarkably expediting your booting process.

Improved Work Efficiency for Heavy Load Tasks including Photoshop, Premiere and CAD

Applications that involve large-scale images or videos such as Photoshop, Premiere and CAD require substantial amounts of time for rendering and storing data. Mtron SSD MOBI reduces the work time so that professional photographers, graphic designers, video professionals and architects conduct tasks efficiently and maximize cost reduction.

Seamless Game Experience

Online and PC games such as Lineage and Battle Field involve large scale data exceeding 1GB, extending the time required to load the game and read new data when accessing a new map. Mtron SSD MOBI expedites the loading process and allows users to experience uninterrupted, optimal game environments.

Outstanding Durability Optimized for Mobile System

Thanks to the ubiquitous environment that allows networking regardless of time and place, various types of mobile devices have become essential part of our lives. However, it is not easy to maintain data security in mobile and portable devices that are always on the move. Mtron SSD MOBI is a semiconductor storage device built with flash memories. It is light and sturdy, minimizing the risk of damaging the data against drops, impact or vibration.

Reduced Battery Power Consumption for Longer Notebook Computer Use

Being able to use a notebook PC or a mobile device even for 10 minutes longer is very important. Since the devices are often reboot or taken to the standby mode in the mobile environment, power consumption by the hard disk is inevitably high. Mtron SSD MOBI only consumes 0.5W in the idle state, allowing significant power saving for the notebook computer.

Notebook Computer without Noise and Heat

Noise from a computer can be more annoying than subways or vehicles. Since Mtron SSD MOBI consumes power only when accessing the semiconductor chip, there is very little heat, which reduces fan mechanism, the main source of computer noise, and creates a quite computing environment.
