Today we're just going to preview the MyDigitalSSD BP3 since we don't have access to the release firmware just yet. As you know the SSD market is really heating up, just last month we previewed the OCZ Vertex 4 and then had to test a new firmware release just a few weeks later. The MDSSD BP3 will put us in a similar situation, but we don't mind since we're able to tell you about another new technology before it's officially release.
When it comes to the new firmware we're hearing that Phison is working on increasing IOPS performance, an area where the BP3 falls behind the competition. We're hoping that native command queuing write performance is also addressed in the initial release as well. Time will tell.
The MyDigitalSSD BP3 is already available for pre-order at MyDigitalDiscount.com. MDD will have the 512GB model that we previewed today for $499.99, but they have also sent over a TweakTown coupon code (TT512BP3SAVE25) that takes $25 off of your BP3 512GB order. The 256GB drive is available for pre-order as well and it gets a $10 coupon code (TT512BP3SAVE10).
After a quick scan at Newegg we see that the price of the 512GB model is better than most high capacity 2.5" drives on the market today and that is even before the $25 coupon code is included.
Let's hope that MyDigitalSSD and Phison are able to get the new firmware ready soon so we can take advantage of these new low-cost, high capacity drives. We're going to pay very close attention, don't worry.
