| Storage News | Posted: Jan 5, 2007 1:40 am

As the world of flash-based storage continues to grow, SanDisk have just unveiled a 1.8" based solid-state drive which offers 32GB of capacity with sustained data read speeds of 62MB/s!

 

The Dailytech have all the info on it folks.

 


DailyTech reported yesterday that Samsung developed a new 50 nanometer 16Gb NAND flash memory chips that provide 100% faster read speeds and 150% faster write speeds. The announcement sparked a lot of interest from consumers looking for larger and faster offerings than Samsung's current 32GB Flash SSD drive.

 

SanDisk today entered the SSD fray with a 32GB drive of its own. The 1.8" SanDisk SSD Ultra ATA 5000 drive uses patented TrueFFS flash management technology and has a 2 million hour MTBF. The drive has no moving parts, so it is completely silent and weighs less than traditional 1.8" mobile hard drives. The drive also consumes 0.4W of power when active, versus 1.0W for a traditional mobile hard drive.
