Features & Specifications

 

Toshiba OCZ RC100 480GB M.2 2242 NVMe SSD

No More SATA Bottleneck

Don't be held back by an interface designed for hard drives. The NVMe interface was designed from the ground up to take advantage of NAND flash technology and the PCI Express bus means it has the bandwidth to deliver performance outclassing even enthusiast SATA SSDs.

NVMe™ Made Affordable

First generation NVMe drives had high performance, but also came at a high cost. Toshiba has leveraged our expertise in NAND flash to design an entire SSD that fits within a single BGA package, delivering an NVMe drive that balances cost and performance.

Small Form Factor

Since the entire SSD is contained within a single BGA chip, the RC100 fits onto an M.2 2242 PCB, making it one of the smallest SSDs available in retail. It's perfect for small form factor builds and plugs directly into the motherboard, reducing additional cable clutter.
