The competition to the latest Micron's RealSSD SATA 6Gbps drives is due Q4, earliest.
G.Skill has taken a new version of the Indilinx Barefoot drive controller and paired it with Intel 32nm NAND flash to make the Falcon 2. Boasting claimed speeds of 220/110MB/s read/write, we've found its performance is surprising!
OCZ Technology has launched its first SSD to retail under $100 - the 32GB Onyx. The question remains - is it cheap enough for the storage space on offer?
We continue our coverage of CeBIT 2010 by taking a look at the new batch of high end motherboards, digital streamers, gold PSUs, new Sandforce SSDs, and the latest top end chassis from Cooler Master.
Think toughened storage extends to a bit of rubber around a memory key or wrapping a hard disk in bubble-wrap when you post it? Well that's just not good enough! Join us as we watch ioSafe roast, soak, bash, drop and crushes its latest NAS under the caterpillar tracks of digger before rescuing the data.
A prototype SSD from Marvell - designed to show off its latest controller board - demonstrates the raw power of the SATA 6Gb/s standard - albeit in read-only format.
Laptops supporting the new SDXC memory card standard - which scales to 2TB - are due from Lenovo, Dell, and HP - but Apple is absent from the list.
Fusion-IO has unveiled a bespoke PCI-E device which links eight ioDrive SSD modules together - and a system based around it which manages 1TB/s sustained data transfer.
We add Seagate's latest Barracuda XT hard disk with new Gigabyte and Asus P55 motherboards featuring SATA 6Gbps to see what performance potential, if any, the latest SATA standard offers.
A flaw in the PATA backwards compatibility of Marvell Semiconductors' first SATA 6Gb/s chip has lead to delays.
The Serial ATA International Organisation has put the finishing touches to revision 3.0 of the SATA specification - and looks set to offer 6Gb/s throughput.
SSDs might have high read speeds covered, but writing data, especially random write speeds, has held many back. Today we look at OCZ's latest high speed SSD, the Vertex, to see if the addition of onboard cache and an ARM processor can allow SSDs to fulfil their true potential.
OCZ announces that its PCI-E Z-Card SSDs have gone into production, with capacities of up to 1TB, although the 1TB model costs £2,640.34.
SandForce has announced its first range of SSDs for enterprise and mobile use, and it has a trick up its sleeve in the form of a neat new controller dubbed Duraclass.
Indilinx's Barefoot controller is reportedly forming the backbone of OCZ's new SSDs.
