First shown off at CES recently, A-DATA have broken new ground in solid-state storage, having presented a huge 128GB 2.5" Solid State (flash-based) hard drive!

PQI recently launched a 64GB SSD offering which was enough to earn the company much praise, but for A-DATA to DOUBLE it soon after is a real kick in the chin. It's great to see solid state storage technology starting to move forward at a faster rate these days. Bring it on!

Details at Nordic Hardware and The Inquirer peeps.

A-DATA is one out of many manufacturers at CES that displayed products using flash memory for storage. Flash-based harddrives, or so called Solid State Drives, is something we've been covering a lot recently and the interest for a mechanical harddrive is constantly growing. During CES A-DATA has presented its latest creations on the SSD market and among others you could find a 2.5" model with a 128GB storage capacity. In other words, four times the capacity of Samsung's and SanDisk's harddrives and twice that of PQI's recently launched SSD unit. The 2.5" model use the regular SATA-II interface and it is counting on starting the mass production during the first or second quarter of 2007.
