You can see their specific technical features in the table shown below.

This family of SSDs has several technologies specifically designed for servers where the device is one 24 x 7. Therefore Toshiba has layed particular emphasis on energy efficiency without neglecting performance since it assumes that these SSDs will be used in critical environments. That said, it does not disappoint on the performance front, offering up to 3250 MB / s read and 2464 MB / s writing.
