GALAX LAUNCHES ALL NEW GAMER SERIES SSD DRIVES BUILT AROUND THE CUSTOM HERACLES SATA CONTROLLER
GALAX, a leading manufacturer of high-end PC gaming hardware, announced today the global launch of the new Gamer Series Solid State Drives, powered by the advanced Heracles SATA III controller developed in collaboration with JMicron Technology and specially designed to meet the intense performance requirements of next gen gaming. GALAX Gamer Series SSDs are made with high-end desktop and notebook PCs in mind and excel at both the random read/write speeds essential for responsive gameplay and sequential read speeds for the fastest possible load times.
The new Heracles controller improves gaming, and in fact the entire computing experience with a variety of unique features and advancements. For example, many SSDs have fast maximum speeds but can only maintain them for a short while before performance begins to drop, but Heracles solves this problem with SLC Cache Auto-Release which streamlines the data pipeline and prevents cache bottlenecks. This effectively eliminates the performance drops prevalent in competing drives and lets GALAX Gamer Series SSDs maintain their maximum speed indefinitely. In addition, high physical durability, built-in wear leveling and Error Correct Code (ECC) ensure data remains secure and transfers reliable even after years of heavy use.
The Gamer SSD’s 7mm ultra slim form factor and extreme energy efficiency also makes it ideal for even the lightest of laptops. Demonstrations have shown the GALAX Gamer Series to have among the lowest power consumption of any drive in their class during even the most intense activity, with power usage practically nil during idle. Upgrading a laptop with a Gamer Series SSD is a simple way to improve both gaming performance and battery life simultaneously.
