It is expected that the drive will be able to deliver read and write speeds of up to 260MB/sec and 200MB/sec respectively, with sustained writes on the two largest capacity 128GB and 256GB drives being up to 150MB/sec.

 

There will also be smaller 64GB and 128GB models in the lineup which will give slightly less performance at up to 225MB/sec read and 135MB/sec write rates.

 

It's been learned that the Enyo series of USB 3.0 equipped portable SSDs will hit the market by the middle of this month. Pricing information is yet to be released.
