“We have no doubt that this partnership with Syntech will be the perfect platform for us to take the SanDisk SSD range to the next level” said Gary Shap, CEO Tudortech. “We have been in discussions for some time to ensure that this platform will accelerate the introduction of this fantastic, cost effective alternative solution to HDDs. I have no doubt in my mind that this relationship will grow from strength to strength along with the technological genius that is SanDisk.”

SanDisk has a line up of SSDs available to suit all types of consumers. Top of the range is the SanDisk Extreme SSD which uses SanDisk’s latest digital storage technology to boost your computer’s performance. Ideal for computer enthusiasts and gamers, this SSD delivers faster data speeds, long-lasting reliability, and low power consumption for personal, OEM and enterprise computing needs.

With sequential read speeds up to 550MB/s, the SanDisk Extreme SSD can boot up your operating system a lot faster than a typical 7200RPM HDD. It can also provide quick file transfers during video editing and data backup thanks to the exceptional 510MB/s sequential write speed. Your computer will boot up in seconds, load programs quickly, and blow through the most demanding next-gen games. Requiring less power than a traditional HDD, the SanDisk Extreme SSD only consumes 0.5w while active – so it won’t stress your computer’s power supply.

The SanDisk Extreme SSD has been available in South Africa since April 2012 in 120, 240 & 480 GB capacities and has received many positive reviews from the technical press nationwide and has even been awarded the PC Format Gold award.

Next in the line is the standard SanDisk SSD, providing faster computer performance and greater reliability, while extending and enhancing your existing computer. With sequential read speeds up to 490MB/s and write speeds up to 350MB/s, SanDisk SSDs are the smart affordable choice to upgrade a computer.

Also in the range is the SanDisk ReadyCache SSD which provides a simple, cost-effective way to upgrade your desktop PC’s performance. This SSD works with your system’s existing hard drive to deliver the performance benefits of solid state technology at a fraction of the cost of total hard drive replacement. You’ll enjoy faster boot up, quicker program loading, and more responsive multimedia performance.
