Düsseldorf, Germany, 27 July 2017 - Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH launched today the TR200 SATA solid state drive (SSD) series for the retail market. Leveraging Toshiba’s latest 3-bit-per-cell TLC (triple-level cell) BiCS FLASH the TR200 series offers PC gamers and DIY enthusiasts Toshiba’s first upgrade SSD with 64-layer 3D flash memory.
Toshiba TR200 SSDs offer an easy and affordable way to enhance notebook or desktop experiences by increasing system responsiveness and productivity over traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). With a 6 Gbit/s SATA interface, the TR200 series is rated for sequential read/write speeds of up to 550 MB/s and 525 MB/s and random read/write performances of up to 80,000 and 87,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS). In addition to the excellent SATA performance, TR200 SSDs provide low power consumption that translates into a longer battery life for on-the-go users.
The TR200 series will be showcased at the China Digital Entertainment Expo and Conference (ChinaJoy) in Shanghai, China from July 27-30 and Gamescom in Cologne, Germany from August 22-26 (Hall 10.1/B024). TR200 drives will be offered in a 2.5-inch form factor and are available in 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB capacities and will be available at retailers and etailers this autumn.

 Sequential performance is measured with Iometer 1.1.0
 Toshiba Memory Corporation (TMC) survey based on sequential read and write speeds of 128KiB units, using TR200 series models under TMC test conditions. Read and write speed may vary, depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size. TMC defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes and a kibibyte (KiB) as 210 bytes, or 1,024 bytes.
 Random performance is measured with CrystalDiskMark 5.1.2
 Toshiba Memory Corporation (TMC) survey based on random read and write speeds of 4KiB units, using TR200 series models under TMC test conditions. Read and write speed may vary, depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size. TMC defines a kibibyte (KiB) as 210 bytes, or 1,024 bytes.
 Definition of capacity: Toshiba Memory defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
