On crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo there are various projects, often also related to computers. Never before has such a form of fundraising used to create standard computer components such as SSDs ever been used. The first project to be implemented in this way is Avexir S100.
The S100 is the first solid state SSD that can be launched with an online fundraiser. This is a rather unusual idea, as the production of such devices is usually done by large companies that have been specializing in this field for many years, with the right expertise and their own distribution network. Still, Avexir, well-known for its accessories for modding computers, is behind this project hoping to achieve full success.
The S100 is also a product designed for modding fans, so it is equipped with an LED backlit casing. The backlight is installed under the company logo as well as on the edge of the drive, making it the perfect product for all windows side computers where the components are properly exposed and highlighted.
The SATA 6 Gbps drive will provide read / write speeds of 550 MB / s and 450 MB / s, and is based on the JMicron controller. It is not known what model and what NAND systems are used in it.
Rather, they will not be the latest components, and the disc itself, also does not belong to the thin. Typically, SSDs use a 7 mm thick frame to fit ultrabooks and thin laptops. However, the S100 will use an older 9.5 mm frame and maybe even 15 mm. Of course, in the case of desktops it will not be a problem as there are plenty of space in the case.
