The news comes after the bad press that has recently flogged the Jmicron JMF602 series controllers that are causing drive lagging, pausing, and stuttering. The new Indilink controller when paired with SLC Flash will read and write at 230MB/s and 170MB/s respectively, and 200MB/s and 160MB/s respectively when paird with MLC Flash.

 

Drives will be available in 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, and 250GB varieties and will cost between $129 and $869. The two smaller drives will come with 32MB cache, but the larger two will boast a 64MB cache.
