VisionTek Racer Series 480GB SSD

Fast Just Got Faster

Extreme SSD performance for PC and Mac desktop* and notebook computers.

Combine a legendary SandForce processor with Tier 1 synchronous NAND and the result is the over 560MB/s Racer Series SSDs. Designed to handle incompressible (already compressed) files used in A/V and digital photography with the highest speed possible, Racers are also the ideal upgrade choice for high-performance modders and gamers. And besides supercharging notebooks, Racer Series SSDs offer portable machines longer battery life, higher reliability, and near silent operation.

The Racer Series 480GB SSDs are ideal for:

  • Prosumer applications: high speed audio, film, photography, and graphic production
  • Tweakers, Modders, and Performance Enthusiasts
  • Gaming Enthusiasts

*Use of drive in 3.5” bay will require use of included adapter bracket.

  • Nearly silent operation
  • TAA Compliant and Built in US

DuraClass™ Technologies for incomparable SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency:

  • DuraWrite™ reduces over-writing and extends the drive endurance by 20x or more compared to standard SSD controllers.
  • Advanced Wear Levelling & Monitoring distributes data evenly across the entire drive.
  • Advanced Read/Disturb Management safeguards against data corruption by spreading read/write cycles across the flash components.
  • Intelligent garbage collection maintains optimal write speeds by clearing deleted data blocks during off-peak usage times and returns reusable drive space.
  • RAISE™ (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive from flash block failures by monitoring and correcting errors in real time.
  • Superior error correction (ECC) protection for longest data retention and drive life.
