Super fast

Samsung has announced the release of its first 256GB SSD drive.

The 2.5-inch drive will be targeted for desktop replacement laptops, workstations and blade servers. The MLC-flash SATA II drive has speeds of 200MBps read and 160MBps sequential write. Not like we'll be able to afford it or anything, but they'll be available around September, with a 1.8-inch version due in Q4 2008.

It is the second announcement that Samsung has made about these sorts of drives. It announced a 128-Byte MLC flash-based SSD in February.

Featuring a 3Gbit/s SATA II interface, the new 128GByte SSD uses native command queuing and spread-spectrum clocking to add to its higher performance levels.

It also features device/host-initiated power management for an exceptionally low power consumption level of 0.5W in active mode. So far there has been no price announced for the drives.
