Where Seagate has become the first hard disk manufacturer to introduce a drive using the new 6Gbps interface, Micron has become the first to do the same for a solid state drive.

Micron call it the RealSSD C300 and in theory, thanks to the new interface it can provide read speeds of up to 355MB/sec and 215MB/sec for write. It's also been said the drive is the first to use ONFI 2.1 high-speed synchronous NAND flash, so it sounds promising as to just what kind of numbers this beast can push out in real world tests.

 

The drive comes in both 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch sizes with current capacities being 128 and 256GB. It's due to hit the market during Q1 of next year, but there's no doubt you'll be digging deep into your pockets for one of these puppies.

 

You can view a couple demonstration videos below giving you a taste of the C300 in action.
