Super Talent Technology today launched its 256GB solid state drive, touted to be the worldâ€™s slimmest at 12.5mm. (Many notebook PCs would accommodate only 9.5mm thick drives.) The FSD56GC25H uses the industry standard 2.5-inch hard drive form factor and features a standard SATA-I interface; itâ€™s completely interchangeable with conventional 2.5-inch SATA hard drives.
The company said the FSD56GC25H drive supports 0.1ms access times, a maximum of 65MB/sec sequential read speed and 50MB/sec sequential write speed. It can withstand 16g of vibration and up to 1600G of shock, about 5 times greater than typical hard drives.
The signature black case is made from a durable lightweight aluminum alloy. It is designed for use in bulkier notebook PCs and industrial applications.
â€œWe designed this drive for applications that need rugged and reliable storage in a very compact form factor. This is the world’s smallest and thinnest 256GB SSDâ€, said Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James.
