Thunderbolt Solid State Drive

Many Thunderbolt drives utilise TLC Solid State Drives or Triple Layer Cells.

TLC SSD's write three bits to each cell and it is typically TLC SSD’s that you will buy online and in the shops.

TLC SSD’s generally offer higher capacities and smaller physical size than both SLC and MLC SSD’s.

Initially, the downside for TLC SSD’s came in slightly lower speeds, reliability and durability.

This has changed considerably in very recent times with the manufacturers working hard to improve all aspects of TLC SSD’s.

In particular, manufacturers of the controller chips that essentially run an SSD now have available technologies that significantly reduce all of the shortcomings of writing 3 bits to each cell.

For example, HomeKit Australia’s new 1TB and 2TB SSD’s utilise 3D NAND and incorporate a premium controller from Silicon Motion (SMI) that significantly boosts speed, reliability and durability of these SSD's.

Often, TLC Solid State Drives are used in conjunction with the Thunderbolt interface.

At HomeKit Australia, we love the Thunderbolt interface and take real satisfaction in making new performance Thunderbolt products available to you.
