IRDM PRO is an updated version of Iridium Pro that offers the same level of performance. Product refresh includes new product sticker, new packaging and new part numbers. Although Iridium Pro has been phased out from the production, you may be still able to purchase both versions for a certain period of time.

Both drives are based on MLC NAND flash, which means they deliver good performance and reliability. The basic difference between them is a built-in DRAM cache in IRDM PRO. This makes IRDM much more suitable for professional use.
