Specifications, Availability and Pricing
G.Skill's latest TITAN series is compromised of two drives at this time, the 128GB model and the 256GB that we are looking at today. This is G.Skill's first offering at the 256GB capacity mark and a benchmark in which many would-be-buyers have been waiting for.
The drives rated speed is 200 MB/s read and 160 MB/s write and to go ahead and let the cat out of the bag early, we were able to achieve the rated numbers in ATTO, a benchmark that is ran on every drive we test, but rarely ever published. These speeds put the drive right up there with the Intel X-25M drive which also uses MLC NAND flash memory.
The biggest drawback for the X-25M has always been price with a dash of capacity envy. G.Skill was able to beat Intel on both fronts with the TITAN series, especially capacity. The G.Skill TITAN 128GB is already available at Newegg for 299 USD and the 256GB is priced at 494.99. Both may be priced a little higher than what most users are prepared to spend on a hard drive; we will look take a closer look at this issue in the conclusion.
As for competition, there are not too many players willing to enter the 256GB market at this time. Newegg lists two drives at 256GB and two at 250GB with the Super Talent OX Series (rated 150 MB/s Read and 100 MB/s Write) coming in just a hair cheaper than the TITAN. The two 250 GB drives are from OCZ Technology and start out at 645 USD, so they are not even competition for the TITAN.
