Look for it at CES in January

Toshiba has announced that it will unveil a 2.5-inch 512GB solid-state drive at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month. Toshiba also announced that it will begin shipments of this mega drive in Q2 of 2009. This will be one of the world’s largest capacity, solid-state drives to be used in laptop computers.

Toshiba also said that it will showcase as well as release for sale a wide variety of "fast read/write SSDs" that are based on 43-nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash technology. The MLC technology allows solid-state drive makers to deliver higher capacity drives at lower prices.

Toshiba also indicated that it will also offer drives in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB sizes in 1.8-inch or 2.5-inch drive enclosures or as SSD Flash Modules. While no pricing was available for any of the drives, Toshiba will offer samples of the new drives during Q1 of 2009, with mass production scheduled for mid-Q2.

Toshiba’s competition is nipping at its heels: Samsung has begun mass production of a 256GB solid-state Drive and Micron Technologies says it will be shipping a 256GB drive near the end of Q1 2009.
