At this point we are hardly surprised when MyDigitalSSD proprietor Matt Dawson calls us and says he has another world's first ready for us to check out. After helping steer many of the storage designs used in netbooks today, Matt moved on to build a large portion of RunCore's fan base. From there he started his own SSD company named after his retail store, MyDigitalDiscount.
MyDigitalSSD, the solid state drive wing of the company produces products that fall into one of two categories. The first is special applications, like mSATA and other emerging technologies. The second category is a bit more mainstream, quality low cost SSDs that provide a very good mix between performance and low cost.
The new MyDigitalSSD BP3 fits into the second category and brings with it two new to market components that are designed to reduce the overall cost of SATA III performance. The first new component is the Phison S8 controller. This is Phison's first SATA III controller and it's built from the ground up to provide performance that breaks past the SATA II barriers while remaining a low-cost option for SSD manufactures.
The second new component is from Toshiba and this one has us very excited. We've all seen Toshiba Toggle Flash drives that rest at the top of almost every manufacture's product line. Toggle Flash is a premium component and Toshiba recently released a 24nm version of it. This new flash, Toggle 2 is still 24nm, but it increases the performance from 166MB/s to 200MB/s. It should also reduce the power needed for operation, but we've yet to confirm the power draw.
MyDigitalSSD chose to use both of these emerging components in the same product, the Bullet Proof 3 or BP3. Today we're looking at the MDSSD BP3 512GB, but we haven't even got to the best part yet.
