Has the day of the SSD arrived? Coming in the heels of SanDiskâ€™s announcement of its 32GB solid state drive, Super Talent Technology of San Jose, California (aka Silicon Valley) today launched a full range of SSDs with SATA interface. The new flash drives offer up to 128GB of storage capacity, yes, 128GB!
They come in industry standard sizes of 1.8â€, 2.5â€ and 3.5â€ which means they can be drop-in replacements for conventional hard disk drives.
The 1.8â€ SSDs for ultraportable movile devices will offer 4GB to 32GB, while the 2.5â€ models for notebooks will range in size from 8GB to 64GB and the 3.5â€ desktop replacement SSDs will give 64GB to 128GB.
Solid state drives offer several advantages over traditional hard disk drives: rugged reliability, low power consumption and fast access speed.
The new SSDs from Super Talent will be available in April 2007.
