Super Talent ships super thin 256GB SSD

Smaller is better, you know...

The folks over at Super Talent sent us a press release earlier stating that they have started shipping what they are calling the world's thinnest 256GB solid state drive.


FSD56GC25H is bound to be a mighty expensive beast offering good performance but sadly it is only using SATA I technology whereas many are companies are preparing SATA II models right now. Even still, it supports 0.1ms access times, a maximum of 65MB/sec sequential read speed and 50MB/sec sequential write speed. It also supports up to 1600G of shock and 16G of vibration, which is said to be about five times greater than typical hard disk drives.


San Jose, California - March 26, 2008 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today launched the world's slimmest 256GB solid state drive (SSD).


The FSD56GC25H uses an industry standard 2.5-inch hard drive form factor and uses an industry standard SATA-I interface, making it 100% interchangeable with conventional 2.5-inch SATA hard drives. This SSD implements Super Talent's patented stacking technology to pack an enormous amount of solid state storage into an exceptionally small and slim case, measuring a mere 12.5mm thick - 40% thinner than any other 256GB SSD available. The signature black case is made from a durable lightweight aluminum alloy.
