In early prep for Windows Vista, Samsung have unveiled a 4GB Solid State drive which will act as a high speed NAND flash cache for Vista equipped systems. According to The DailyTech, the pricing on these puppies will also be quite reasonable (under $200), certainly lower then one would expect for solid state storage, even if it's only able to hold 4GB of data.
San Jose, CA - July 25, 2006: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced that a 4GB solid state disk (SSD), now being readied for production, will also serve as a high speed NAND flash cache for notebooks and PCs in conjunction with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.
The device - compatible with Windows ReadyBoost, a new Windows Vista feature that uses flash memory to improve system responsiveness - enables users to avoid the hundreds of annoying multi-second delays they experience every day when moving within and between frequently used applications.
