Synopsis: Get the latest Firmware update for MyDigitalSSD BP3 mSATA SSDs featuring the Phison S8 Controller. This update over provisions the drive for improved Random Read/Write performance, increases the life span and endurance of the drive, and corrects compatibility issues seen in the Acer W500 and Asus EP121.

Get improved speeds, endurance, and lifespan while making compatibility issues a thing of the past!

Click the links below to download the latest firmware update for MyDigitalSSD BP3 mSATA SSDs featuring the Phison S8 controller and our step-by-step tutorial to assist you in updating your drive.

The main feature of this firmware update is that it over provisions the SSD. While over provisioning does slightly decrease the overall size of the drive, it does a lot of good for the drive by leveraging that additional capacity for improved random (small file) Read/Write speeds and IOPS (helps with boot times and opening programs), extended performance endurance (no slow down no matter how much data you put on it), and allows for a longer life span of the drive itself.

Furthermore, this update also corrects compatibility issues seen in the Acer Iconia Tab W500 and ASUS Eee Slate EP121.

Note: This firmware update is intended for MyDigitalSSD solid state drives. While compatible with other solid state drives featuring the Phison S8 controller, My Digital Discount will not be held responsible for errors made on drives other than MyDigitalSSD, if any occur.
