Colorful’s new SSD is based on Chinese NANDs

Colorful’s new consumer drives are among the first to build on Chinese NAND flash chips.

Based on the raw specification, the Warhalberd CN600 may seem quite low-cost, as the products offer no extras in terms of either capacity or pace. However, digging deeper changes the situation, as Colorful’s development is based on unusual components: NAND flash chips and the controller are also Chinese developments. The former is supplied by the well-known Yangtze Memory and the latter by Maxio Technology, also in China.

The manufacturer has not revealed any details, so it is not yet clear exactly what chips the 256 and 512 M.2 SSDs are made of. Yangtze Memory launched production of the 64-layer TLC 3D NAND a good two years ago, in parallel with the promise that it would already be working on the 96- and 128-layer versions that offer higher bit rates. However, U.S. trade restrictions have also overtaken the Yangtze Memory, whose schedule has suffered a delay of several months as a result.

The two-member Warhalberd CN600 series members are otherwise offered at a relatively affordable price by Colorful: the Chinese manufacturer is asking $ 39 net for a 256 gigabyte SSD and $ 59 for a 512 gigabyte.
